Prince George “loves being outside,” his grandfather Prince Charles says

HRH Duchess of Cambridge

In an interview with Sky News, the royal, 67, revealed that his grandson, 2, is “one of those characters who naturally, instinctively likes to be outside.”

“It’s very interesting. I’m intrigued to see if it lasts,” Prince Charles said. “But he loves being outside, which is encouraging. Like all these things, it depends if you can get them to take an interest.”

The Prince of Wales is hoping to pass his attention and enthusiasm for the environment on to his grandson.

“Like all these things, it depends if you can get them to take an interest,” the British royal said. “But half of it comes from explaining the minutiae of life sometimes, or getting people to look carefully at something, even watching a bird or observing carefully a flower or how a building sits in the environment and the landscape. All of these things are part of the intricate detail and pattern of life, which we can’t exist without.”

In fact, Prince George is a great helper as he has already planted trees with his grandfather at Charles’ house, Highgrove House, in Gloucestershire.

Over the years Prince Charles has transformed his garden at Highgrove House in a truly spectacular place where his grandchildren can enjoy a magical atmosphere.

After birth of their second child, Princess Charlotte, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge left Kensington Palace and headed to a quiet idyllic place in Norfolk, where the royal couple owns a country home, Anmer Hall.
