'He'll Follow In His Father's Footsteps': Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Gushes Over Baby Prince George

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge made her glittering return to the spotlight last week following the birth of baby Prince George at the Tusks Trust Awards in London last week. And while the royal might be a pro on the red carpet she admitted she was "learning all the time" about conservation work, a cause close to the heart of Prince William, but predicting her son George would "follow in his father's footsteps" when it comes to concern for the environment.

Prince William, who is patron of the UK based conservation charity and has worked closely with them for several years, spoke passionately about his love of Africa in a recent televised interview Prince William's Passions: New Hope, New Father. Admitting she wasn't as knowledgeable as her husband, Kate told guests on the night, according to The Telegraph: “I’m just learning all the time and I think George will be too. I think he’ll be following in his father’s footsteps."

Speaking in the recent documentary William, who claimed his wife probably thinks he's "Africa potty" admitted he couldn't help getting emotional about the cause.

“The wildlife is incredibly vulnerable and I feel a real protective instinct, more so now that I am a father, which is why I get emotional about it … you want to stand up for what is very vulnerable and needs protecting," he explained.

"Elephants, rhinos and many other animals that are persecuted don’t have a voice.”

Kate and William looked more like megastars than new parents when they hit the red carpet last week, with the Duchess showing off her slender figure just six weeks after giving birth. But admitting little George wasn't far from their thoughts, the Duke said when addressing the room.

"This is actually our first evening out without him, so please excuse us if you see us nervously casting cheeky glances at our mobile phone to check all is well back home."

William also went on to expresss that becoming a parent has only deepened his concern for less fortunate children.

He added: "Like any new parents, our thoughts inevitably turn to the world that our child will inherit. It is unfathomable to imagine a world in which children who have been born in the past couple of months may grow up in a world in which rhinoceros have ceased to live in the wild."
