Prince William took part in his first Instagram Q&A to promote the upcoming Earthshot Prize Awards ceremony. The Duke of Cambridge answered a number of questions about climate and the awards as well as a few cheeky personal questions about himself and his kids.

The royal showed off his Spanish speaking skills when he was asked if he knew the language.

He cleverly quipped: “Sí, un poquito (Yes, a little).”

The Prince also responded to questions he was not prepared for.

When William was asked whether unicorns were real, he broke out into a smile and spoke about his daughter Princess Charlotte.

“Well, I think if you talk to my daughter, she’d say they were real.”

He added: “Obviously, it’s a trade secret, so I can’t possibly comment.”

In May, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge became the first royal pair to launch their own separate YouTube channel from the Royal Family.

For their first 25 second video they hit nearly 500 thousand subscribers and over 3.2 million views.

Prince William’s Earthshot Prize has been billed as “the most ambitious environmental prize in history”, with £50 million to be awarded in the next decade.

Its purpose is to annually award five winners with £1million, to develop their innovative solutions in tackling the climate change crisis.

The Duke of Cambridge and Sir David Attenborough announced the 15 finalists in September.

The five winners are due to be announced in an awards ceremony on Sunday, October 17.

The five winners have been chosen by The Earthshot Prize Council, whose members include the singer Shakira, actress Cate Blanchett and the Queen of Jordan.

A star-studded awards ceremony has been arranged for Sunday evening, with celebrities such as Emma Watson, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, and Dermot O’Leary announced as performers and presenters.
