Prince William did a documentary about his keenness for the environment

Prince William is such a wannabe Hollywood type. That’s why there’s so much barely contained rage at the fact that Prince Harry married an actress and ended up moving to California – that was one of William’s dreams too, to run away and be a middle-class bloke who hangs out with celebrities. William has always fancied himself a PR genius and a natural on camera, like his mother. He is not. William’s not bad on camera, but he just doesn’t have his mother’s (or his brother’s) natural ease with people or natural ease on camera. So… William took part in a documentary about the environment. It’s called Prince William: A Planet For Us All. Here’s the trailer:

It looks… okay. It looks like it’s less about the environment than it’s about Prince William talking about how HE loves the environment.

Prince William, 38, gave royal fans a huge look into his private life when the Duke of Cambridge was joined by a film crew two years ago to record his search for ways to protect the natural world for the ITV documentary Prince William: A Planet For Us All. The documentary, which will be aired next month, said Prince William has “always loved nature”. The Duke added fatherhood has given him “a new sense of purpose”.

William meets people in the UK and abroad who are playing their part in protecting and restoring the environment during the programme, according to Kensington Palace. It also charts his journey from being passionate about conservation to wanting to play a greater global leadership role on the environment, they added.

The Prince also said that his children – George, seven, Charlotte, five, and two-year-old Louis – have had an impact on his views. He said: “Now I have got George, Charlotte and now Louis in my life – your outlook does change. You want to hand over to the next generation, the wildlife in a much better condition.”

William added: “I always believe it is possible to give young people hope and belief that things can get fixed. I have the belief that if we all work together, we can make a difference.”

Reader, I laughed: “It also charts his journey from being passionate about conservation to wanting to play a greater global leadership role on the environment…” LMAO. So, it charts his journey from being keen about the environment to being keen to be seen as an environmental leader. And William name-checking his children in his environmental/conservation work is nothing new. I’ve started to realize that fatherhood is basically the only card he plays when talking about mental health, the environment, sports, whatever. At least he’s not saying “we need to save the environment for MY children specifically,” which is what he used to do. He’s started to make it more general – the environment should be saved for all kids (but mostly his).
