“And I don’t think that that would be something most people would think was acceptable at the moment.”
All of this has come just a few days after Prince William made a resounding speech at the Earthshot Prize Awards in Singapore.

“I want to actually bring change and I want to bring people to the table who can do the change if I can’t do it.”
“I think the thing that ties it all together for me is about social leadership. That’s what I’m trying to find my way in.”
Before concluding he also said at the time, “But you have to remain focused, if you spread yourself too thin you just can’t manage it and you won’t deliver the impact or the change that you really want to happen.”
