Prince William has said fatherhood has changed his outlook

Becoming a father to Princess Charlotte, five, and her brothers, Prince George, seven, and Prince Louis, two, has had a huge impact on William's outlook.

He explained: "You can be a happy-go-lucky, young guy, enjoy parties, and then all of a sudden you go, 'There's a little person here, and I am responsible for that person.'

Later in the documentary, William shared further surprising details about his family when he paid a visit to Liverpool to surprise a group of children who had built a bug hotel, named Bugingham Palace.

"Is Princess Charlotte cheekier than Prince George?" one little girl called Daisy asked the Prince.

"No they're about as cheeky as each other," William replied. "They're very cheeky."

Another girl, Poppy, then asked: "Has Prince George learnt (sic) you the floss?"

"No, Charlotte can floss," says William. "She can already floss at four. Yeah, you don't want to see me floss. Catherine can floss but I can't. It's, it's like a really horrible film to watch me floss."

Also in the new documentary, the Duke reflected on how his children have impacted his commitment to protecting the environment.

"I really want to make sure that in 20 years, George doesn't turn around and say, are you ahead of your time? Because if he does, we're too late," William said.

"Now I've got George, Charlotte and now Louis in my life, your outlook does change. You want to hand over to the next generation, the wildlife, in a much better condition."
