Prince Charles Is a Bigger Influence on Prince George Than We Thought

It's never too early to teach a child about the world -- Prince Charles is taking that advice literally. The royal patriarch recently revealed he is giving Prince George lessons on climate change and the environment and that his grandson is the ideal student because he loves the great outdoors.


Like his gramps -- and mom Kate Middleton -- the cute 2-year-old has a genuine appreciation for the outdoors, Charles recently revealed to Sky News, and Charles is taking full advantage of that fact by turning playtime into teachable moments. He said:

He's one of those characters, I think, who naturally, instinctively, likes to be outside. It's very interesting. I'm intrigued to see if it lasts, but he loves being outside, which is encouraging.

Prince Charles went on to explain how he is trying to give George an introduction to the environment:

Like all these things, it depends if you can get them to take an interest. 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.

George and his grandpa seem to have formed a sweet bond and have even planted trees together in his backyard, which is beyond adorable. I think it's beautiful to learn about the many ways in which George is being raised to appreciate the little things in life. It's also encouraging to hear that Charles, who isn't exactly known in the public for his warm side, is working very hard to give George and Charlotte the best grandpa possible. He even reportedly built a playground in his massive backyard to encourage Kate and William to let their little ones stay over more often.

Thanks to the various influences in his life, George will surely become a well-rounded little guy.
