I used to spend hours climbing trees, digging ditches and all sorts of things, hiding in dens and all sorts from the garden, so I used to love being out in the wild and the wet.”
Prince William also recalled his experience in Kenya where he learned from experts about the wildlife and environmental challenges. Then he discussed the Earthshot Prize which aims to promote the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.
