Prince William, 41, recently participated in a quick fire interview with climate journalist Sophia Li in Singapore. The interview, which took place after the Earthshot Prize ceremony, was uploaded on YouTube and covered a range of topics, including some unexpected favorites of the royal.
When asked about his preference between tea and coffee, the Prince of Wales quickly responded, "Tea." This answer came as a surprise to many, especially considering the long-standing association of the British royals with tea-drinking traditions.
Another unexpected question involved William's preference between spring and autumn. After a brief moment of contemplation, he revealed, "Ooooh....Autumn - just." Although the reason for his preference was not disclosed, it added a personal touch to the interview.
While the conversation also delved into environmental topics related to the Earthshot Prize, some of William's answers remained consistent. When asked about the significance of ambition versus hope in solving environmental crises, the Prince replied, "Both. Can I say both? I have to have ambition and hope together because that's what the Earthshot is about."
Similarly, when discussing whether nature-based solutions or tech-based solutions were more essential, William emphasized the importance of having both. He stated, "I think we haven't got time. I think you need the nature-based solutions alongside the tech-based solutions... we need everything in our arsenal to tackle the environmental challenges."
In other news, Prince William visited Manchester to launch the Royal Foundation Community Impact Project. During his visit, he displayed compassion by hugging Barbara Reid, the mother of a murdered teenager, and receiving a friendship bracelet from a young girl. This gesture highlighted his commitment to listening to the stories of individuals who have experienced loss in the community.
The prince's presence in Moss Side, an area marked by violence, was appreciated by Audrey Preston, another mother who had lost her child. She expressed gratitude, stating, "Lots of kids get murdered in this area, and nobody cares really about the families, we're just left to our own devices, so it's good he came, good for the community."
As Prince William continues to engage with various communities and raise awareness about environmental issues, his unexpected preferences and heartfelt interactions demonstrate his relatability and dedication to making a positive impact.
