Prince George took part in a school activity that left him frustrated about the state of the planet.
Prince George, the eldest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, reportedly got “confused and annoyed” after participating in a frustrating school task.
The 10-year-old royal is currently attending Thomas’s Battersea, a private school in London. According to a source who spoke to The Sun, George was recently assigned a task to pick up litter in the school grounds. However, he was reportedly confused about what he was supposed to do with the litter once he had picked it up.
“He was a bit confused and annoyed because he didn’t know where to put it all,” the source said. “He was like, ‘What do I do with this?’”
The source added that George’s frustration was understandable, as the task was “a bit confusing.” However, they said that George was “a good sport” about it and eventually figured out what to do with the litter.
This is not the first time that George has been reported to have gotten frustrated at school. In 2021, his father, Prince William, revealed that George had gotten “annoyed” after being asked to write a story about a “happy memory.”
“He said, ‘I don’t have any happy memories,’” William said. “And I was like, ‘Well, you must have some happy memories.’ And he goes, ‘No, I don’t think so.’”
William said that he eventually helped George to come up with a happy memory to write about. However, the incident showed that even royal children can get frustrated at school from time to time.
He told a BBC podcast in 2021: “So George at school recently has been doing litter picking, and I didn’t realize it, but talking to him the other day, he was already showing that he was getting a bit confused and sort of annoyed by the fact they went out litter picking one day, and then the very next day they did the same route, same time, and pretty much all the same litter they picked up back again.
And I think that for him, he was trying to understand how and where it all came from. He couldn’t understand; he was like, Well, we cleaned this. Why has it not gone away?’”
William has been very vocal about turning the tide on climate change and environmental problems.
And he’s previously said that he was concerned that Prince George and his generation might still be talking about climate change in decades to come.
He said, “But it shouldn’t be that there’s a third generation now coming along that has to ramp it up even more.
And you know, for me, it would be an absolute disaster if George is sitting here talking to you or your successor, you know, in like 30 years time, whatever, still saying the same thing, because by then we will be too late.”
After Lambrook, George and later Louis will most likely follow in their dad’s footsteps and attend Eton College at the age of 13.
The prestigious school charges £48,501 a year and was set up by King Henry VI in 1440.
It counts other royal alumni such as Prince Harry, Prince William of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent, as well as Sam and Arthur Chatto.
