Prince George loves being outdoors. 

Speaking in his upcoming ITV documentary, 'Prince William: A Planet For Us All', the Duke of Cambridge said: "Seeing my children, seeing the passion in their eyes and the love for being outdoors... They find a bug or they love watching how bees are forming honey. George, particularly, if he’s not outdoors, he’s quite like a caged animal. He needs to get outside."

Meanwhile, Prince William - who also has Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, with his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge - previously revealed he has a "new sense of purpose" in protecting the planet now he has children.

The 38-year-old royal 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. 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."

The documentary was filmed over two years and sees the Duke of Cambridge "champion global action on conservation and climate change." It also includes a meeting with naturalist Sir David Attenborough, with William's wife Catherine admitting their children would be cross that they'd met the 'Blue Planet' presenter without them.

Catherine told him: "The children were very upset that we were coming to see you and they weren't coming. They're massive fans of yours."

David said: "Kids know an awful lot about what is happening to the world." — BANG
