Harry reveals he was mocked at school for a simple habit he picked up from Prince Charles


Prince Harry has opened up about his childhood, saying that he used to get picked on by peers for a simple reason.

Turns out Prince Harry was laughed at in school for something we find very endearing.

Prince Harry once revealed he was teased at school for an environmentally-friendly habit he developed from his dad Prince Charles. Not only did Charles drill into his sons Harry and Prince William the importance of turning off lights when they aren’t needed, but he also taught them another habit.

And speaking in a documentary several years ago called Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Harry said his dad had always encouraged them to pick up litter whenever they were out and about.

Harry admitted: “I used to get taken the mickey out of at school for just picking up rubbish. “I don’t go consciously looking for it. When you go for walks anywhere, if you see something, it stands out, you pick it up. “It’s like I’ve literally done this because I’m programmed to do it because my father did it. Actually, we should all be doing it.”

However, Harry isn’t the only royal who has been involved in litter picking – his nephew Prince George has too.

Prince William previously revealed how his eight-year-old son had become “a bit confused and annoyed” at the state of the planet during litter picking sessions. William told the BBC Newcast podcast: “So George at school recently has been doing litter picking and I didn’t realise but talking to him the other day he was already showing that he was getting a bit confused.

He was also a bit 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’s like, ‘well, we cleaned this. Why has it not gone away?’”
