"That's awesome, look how young he is", Prince Harry whispered.Harry then praised his father for doing "an unbelievable job" and guiding them "without telling us what we should be doing"."I used to get taken the mickey out of at school for just picking up rubbish", he says, warming to the litter-picking theme."I didn't go out consciously looking for it".

While Diana, Princess of Wales relished taking her young sons on glamorous beach holidays to the Caribbean and the south of France, Princes William and Harry said their father had a less exotic approach to time out. And again, both of us thought, "Well this is perfectly normal, everyone must do it".

Speaking in a new BBC documentary set to be released in honour or Prince Charles" 70 birthday in November, William, 36, and Harry, 34, open up about their holiday pastime of "litter picking'. Harry echoed William's statement, noting how their dad "programmed" them to pick up litter. "Without telling us what we should be doing or the direction we should go in, he's just let us learn from the nature of the job, learn from him, learn from mommy".

"I didn't go out consciously looking for it".

"I used to get taken the mickey out of at school for just picking up rubbish", Harry said. "If you go for a walk somewhere and see something and it stands out, you pick it up", he explains in the documentary.


Harry said Charles had "done an fantastic job" as a father "without telling us what we should be doing or what direction we should be going".

Apparently, the holiday took place in Scotland at the Castle of Mey-and while Harry and Meghan were down to hang, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge "declined".

Prince Charles - who is well known for his environmental efforts - made his two sons do an activity that many children would turn their noses up at.

He adds that his father lives "the way he advocates" when it comes to his environmental beliefs.
