Prince Georgeis certainly following in his father’s footsteps. The eldest of the Cambridge children, eight, showed off his charitable side during lockdown when he participated in an endeavour for a good cause.
His father, theDuke of Cambridgeis often showing off his endeavours to better the world and one in particular is his position as President of United For Wildlife and Tusk Trust. In 2018 hetravelled to Africa without his wife to continue his efforts.
More recently, Prince George played his own part for Tusk by organising a bake sale during lockdown with proceeds going to the charity.
Tusk’s chief executive Charlie Mayhew, told GB News that George, who turns nine next month, wrote a "very sweet card about it" telling of his concern for endangered animals in Africa.
He said: “Prince George very sweetly did a little cake sale to raise money for Tusk during lockdown and wrote a very sweet card about it, clearly demonstrating his concern for Africa's wildlife.”
The charity has however declined to reveal how much the young prince raised.
In 2018 when Prince William, 40, visited Africa he said: “It's heartbreaking to think that by the time my children, George, Charlotte and Louis are in their 20s, elephants, rhinos and tigers might well be extinct in the wild.”
He added that some rhinos he saw on a trip to Africa "are so threatened they have more bodyguards than I do”.
The two princes get their sense of conservation fromPrince Charlesand during a segment inCountry Lifemagazine in 2018 Prince William revealed how much his father had inspired him.
“His passion for the environment and the natural world is something I want to repeat in the way I raise George, Charlotte and Louis.
"My father taught me about the natural world around us, from the burns to the trees to the hills."
William added: "My father's focus on the environment is something I've looked up to all my life. His unwavering commitment to rural issues and the countryside has been a big inspiration to me and something I am keen to emulate and teach my children about”.
Earlier this monthWilliam surprised passers-by earlier when he joined Big Issueseller Dave Martin on the streets of the capital, selling copies of the magazine usually sold by those experiencing homelessness or issues with long-term unemployment in order to help them re-build their lives.
