prince william says prince george is like a caged animal if he doesnt get to spend time outdoors

Prince William has revealed that his eldest son Prince George is like a ‘caged animal’ if he doesn’t spend time outside. 

The Duke of Cambridge, 38, speaks about how much his three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five and Prince Louis, two, love nature while filming for upcoming ITV documentary Prince William: A Planet For Us All which airs tomorrow, the Express reported. 

The documentary, which is set to air next month and also features both Sir David Attenborough and Kate Middleton, 38, follows Prince William around the world as he encourages action to fight for the environment. 

Speaking of how his own children’s passion for nature encouraged him to do more to safeguard the planet, the father-of-three explains: ‘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.

Prince William says his eldest son (pictured) is like a ‘caged animal’ if he doesn’t spend time outdoors

‘George, particularly, if he’s not outdoors, he’s quite like a caged animal. He needs to get outside.’

In the new documentary, Prince William opens up about developing his own love of nature as a child – as he was allowed to roam freely around the Sandringham estate. 

He adds that all three of his children love to be outdoors and explore around their Anmer Hall home in Norfolk. 

Reflecting on fatherhood, William also says how his life is different now that he has children because he’s responsible for three small people instead of just himself. 

The royal has passed on his love of nature to his children, who all featured in adorable Q&A with nature lover and broadcaster David Attenborough, which was shared by Kensington Palace on Saturday. 

In the heart-melting video filmed by their parents in the garden at Kensington Palace in August, the young royals could each be heard asking the broadcaster, 94, a question.

At the beginning of the clip, a grown up Prince George, donning a red polo top, asked: ‘Hello David Attenborough, what animal do you think will become extinct next?’

Sir David replied: ‘Let’s hope there won’t be any. There are lots of things we can do when animals are in danger of extinction. We can protect them. 

Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte, dressed in her school uniform – a white polo top and grey pinafore – questioned: ‘Hello David Attenborough, I like spiders, do you like spiders too? 

Prince Louis, aged two-and-a-half-years-old, really melted hearts around the nation as he sweetly asked: ‘What animal do you like?’  

Last week, Prince William joined Sir David Attenborough to watch his new documentary – which is about the veteran broadcaster’s 70-year career as a conservationist and the environmental crisis facing the planet – in the garden at Kensington Palace.

Socially distanced in the open air, the Duke of Cambridge and Sir David were offered directors’ chairs with their names printed on the back – but as a joke they sat in each other’s seats.

The pair then watched the 80-minute film, and Sir David gave the Prince a copy of the accompanying book.

After the screening, the naturalist received a reception worthy of the hottest Tinseltown star from three eager young fans, Princes George, Louis and Princess Charlotte, five.

He presented George, seven, with a tooth from an extinct giant shark, which lived 23 million years ago, which he had found on a family holiday to Malta in the late 1960s.

new perth mayor basil zempilas apologises for offensive comments against lgbt community

TV star-turned Perth Lord Mayor, Basil Zempilas, has been forced to apologise for his ‘insensitive’ jibe insulting transgender people.

The breakfast host, 49, who was elected just two weeks ago, told listeners of his radio show on Wednesday that it was ‘wrong’ for a person to identify as a gender that was not the same as their physical anatomy.

‘If you’ve got a penis mate, you’re a bloke. If you’ve got a vagina, you’re a woman. Game over,’ he said.

Mr Zempilas also offered a $100 voucher to any ‘woman with a penis who called in and when asked how he would handle meeting transgender voters joked ‘handle the penis?’

By Thursday, he admitted he’d made a mistake and apologised to anybody who took offence to his comments.   

‘For a brief moment, at 25 minutes past 5am yesterday, I forgot that I was the Lord Mayor of the City of Perth. That was my mistake. It’s my job to be better than that and it won’t happen again,’ he said. 

He said the comments do not ‘accurately reflect his values’ and that it was a ‘stupid, bad broadcasting moment’ that would not happen again. 

‘Transgender people should be allowed to live their lives the way that they wish to,’ he said.

‘It’s a moment that I would prefer to take back, obviously. I’m not proud of those comments and I have apologised for those comments.

‘They were comments unbefitting of me and my values and certainly unbefitting of the values of the organisations that I work for, my colleagues and certainly not in-keeping with the values of the City of Perth.’

The City of Perth has long been an ally to the LGBTQIA community, many of whom were outraged with the statement. 

Mr Zempilas, a former Weekend Sunrise host, was encouraged to undergo transgender awareness training to assist in his role serving the broader community. 

Hunter Gurevich, who chairs TransFolk WA, described the comments as unacceptable and ‘repugnant’.

Curtis Ward, from Pride WA, suggested Mr Zempilas hadn’t quite grasped the difference between sex and gender. Pictured: Participants in the Mardi Gras parade

‘These comments are repugnant, bigoted, narrow minded, parochial and fundamentally deny contemporary science,’ he said. 

‘Further, it puts LGBTQIA+ people at increased risk of harm, when we are already a vulnerable group in society.

‘It is especially disappointing when The City of Perth has long supported the LGBTQIA+ community of Perth.

‘For Mr Zempilas to now betray not only the community, but our relationship with the city, is beyond inexcusable.’

Mr Gurevich already said it would be difficult for members of the community to accept the apology.

‘No apology will be accepted until Mr Zempilas confronts the damage his comments can and have done,’ he said.

Curtis Ward, from Pride WA, suggested Mr Zempilas hadn’t quite grasped the difference between sex and gender. 

‘It is possible to appear one way and feel another and when someone says they’re transgender, they are simply saying they feel differently to how they appear,’ he said.

‘[That is] sex being your physical appearance and your biology whereas gender is how you identify psychologically, whether you’re feminine or masculine.’

Mr Ward said Zempilas’ comments only fueled stigma surrounding the LGBTQIA community and perpetuated misinformed, hurtful and damaging opinions.  

‘I think people need to be educating themselves about what they’re speaking about and if they do have that stage, and they are commanding such a large audience, they should be making educated statements,’ he said.

During the segment, Mr Zempilas encouraged ‘any women with a penis’ to ring the radio station to win a $100 voucher.     

He will quit his presenting role on the radio show at the end of the year after stepping into the role of Lord Mayor. 

The latest controversy came after he wrote in a column piece in August that he would ‘forcibly’ remove homeless people from the city centre if he was elected.

‘I make no apologies for this, the homeless need to be moved out of the Hay and Murray Street malls and the surrounding areas,’ he wrote.

‘Forcibly, if that’s what it takes. I’m sick of being told by people who don’t live and work in the city like I do that it’s not that bad — actually, it’s worse. 

‘The look, the smell, the language, the fights — it’s disgusting. A blight on our city.’

Mr Zempilas was forced to apologise after copping widespread backlash over the comments, with critics accusing him of being ‘disconnected from the city’.

‘Those comments were made in frustration over nine months ago after an incident with my wife and my six year old daughter and a man exposing himself at 11am on a Sunday,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘But the comments weren’t appropriate and I have apologised.

‘I’ve spent a good deal of the last six months educating myself by speaking with people who are homeless, trying to understand their situation better and by speaking with service providers. ‘

Mr Zempilas is a famous face in West Australia, and in March 2018, he was co-host of Weekend Sunrise, replacing Andrew O’Keefe.

In September 2019, he stepped down as regular host of Weekend Sunrise, however continued to appear as a fill-in presenter.

The TV star is has been married to longtime partner Amy Graham since 2009, with the pair tying the knot in Greece. They share two daughters and a son.

The tights, which are marked as sold out by various third party sellers, are described by Gucci as ‘High-rise’ and ‘distressing throughout’  with a  ‘woven logo at elasticised waistband’.

Diet Prada’s post gathered hundreds of comments from confused social media users , with some joking they would sell their own old tights for the same price. 

‘I have so many pairs like this. Gonna claim mine are Gucci, like thanks for making my broke a**look rich. Cool cool cool,’ said one. 

‘No words,’ added another. 

‘Googles DIY ripped Gucci tights on YouTube,’ said a third.

‘This isn’t even a flex. It’s just concerning,’ wrote a fourth.

‘Lmaooo clearly 2020 is getting to everyone and making them LOSE their minds,’ a fifth joked.

‘Lol these brands are so out of touch,’ said another.

‘Mine looked like this after they were clawed by my cat,’ wrote one.  

But Haute Couture designer Natalia Fender who is best known for her unorthodox use of metal textiles in knitting defended the brand, adding: ‘Haha, to be fair they had to program the knitting machine to make it looked ‘ripped’, so I’m assuming it’s knit this way and will not run any further, etc. Similar to t-shirts that have this look.’
