Sharing the anecdote in a BBC film, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, made to commemorate Charles’ 70th birthday on November 14, it’s evident that Prince Charles taught his children the importance of the environment by taking his teenage sons out to pick up rubbish.
“We were in Norfolk on school holidays, and went out litter-picking with him … Both of us thought, ‘This is perfectly normal, everyone must do it,'” shared Prince Harry who is currently expecting his first child with wife, Meghan Markle.
“We’re there with our, basically, spikes, stabbing the rubbish into black plastic bags.”
Harry added that he was "programmed" to pick up rubbish by his father, and joked that it resulted in him getting teased at school.
"He's just let us learn from the nature of the job, learn from him, learn from Mummy, to the point where I used to get the ... mickey (taken) out of me at school for just picking up rubbish," he shared.
