Prince William shrugs off ‘work-shy’ claims

Prince William refused to make further comments when asked if he was frustrated by criticism over his workload.

Prince William has responded to claims he is ‘work-shy’, saying that receiving criticism is “part of the job”.

In an interview with ITV’s Mark Austin, the Prince was asked if he found it annoying that his work was being questioned, however, he would not give a more detailed answer.

William only said: “Let’s focus on one task at a given point in time. We should think about what we can do today, at this point in time and not worry about other things”. For those who don’t know Prince William is a patron of many charities/social causes around the world. One of his favourite topics/issues is primarily the illegal wildlife trade, a cause that is close to his heart.

The royal revealed that he hoped his children would grow up to share his passion for protecting endangered species in future, joking that Prince George could become a conservation “bum”. William said: “I’d definitely like to see George and Charlotte in this wildlife conservation programme.

One continent they should definitely travel to is Africa. They’d have a wonderful time there and I can see George being a bit of a bum sometimes out in the conservation world with his bangles and his sandals. “But I think I’d love them to be interested in the subject and pursue the same sort of ideas and aims that I am.”

Prince William also made a little know claim about his father, Prince Charles. The Future King is a workaholic who ‘falls asleep at his desk and wakes up with paper stuck to his face (but he still loves crawling around with his grandchildren) William said.

William would like to have a work ethic just like his hard-working father.

The Duke of Cambridge is also “enormously proud” of the Duchess of Cambridge’s work ethic. Kate has been widely praised for the manner in which she has taken to royal duties in the decade since she married Prince William. The Duke is said to have grown increasingly proud of his wife over the years, especially at how well Kate has adapted to the role of senior working royal.
