Prince William meets the Emir while on tour
Prince Charles has long been an advocate for fighting against plastic pollution and it seems as though his values have rubbed off on his two sons. While on tour, Prince William also got the chance to meet with the Emir which is something his father and the Queen have also been able to do.
Today, The Duke of Cambridge follows in the footsteps of his grandmother The Queen and his father The Prince of Wales who have both been welcomed to Kuwait by the Emir. https://t.co/ZlcDDcdbGr pic.twitter.com/BecwdAQE6T— The Royal Family (@RoyalFamily) December 2, 2019
