Prince George organised sweet cake sale after sharing concerns for endangered animals

Prince George organised his own cake sale during lockdown in a bid to raise funds for an animal charity.

The nine year old Royal, who will one day be king, had become so concerned for Africa's endangered animals that he wanted to do his bit for conservation.

Charlie Mayhew, chief executive of Tusk, which is the charity George's father Prince William is patron of, has now revealed that the Royal wrote a "very sweet card" going into detail about his passionate efforts to help save the animals.

He also expressed worries for all the beautiful animals on the continent.

The charity does major work campaigning for the environment, and does a great deal to help raise awareness of the growing issues with endangered species.

Speaking to GB News, Mayhew revealed: "Prince George very sweetly did a little cake sale to raise money for Tusk during lockdown.

"He wrote a very sweet card about it, clearly demonstrating his concern for Africa’s wildlife.”

While the charity declined to share exactly how many funds the prince raised with his baking endeavour, the nine year old's efforts have been applauded.

The young prince has often been pictured joining in on a spot of home baking with his sister Princess Charlotte, six, and their mother Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, 40, who is a keen cook herself.

Most recently, the family enjoyed getting involved in the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations as they whipped, whisked and stirred in the kitchen together.

With United Kingdom bunting decorating their kitchen, the eldest children took their jobs seriously as they focused on making cake mixture.

Prince Louis, four, was given the task of using the electric whisk instead.

George has also been pictured assisting with Christmas treats in the past, as the young Royal began to make his first official appearances with the adult members of the family.

Prince George has learnt his passion for causes from his dad, who recently took to the streets to help sell the Big Issue magazine recently.

By 11, the Duke was joining his mother Princess Diana at important charity events and meetings, as the late Royal was known for her determination to help charities tackle homelessness.

“I was 11 when I first visited a homeless shelter with my mother, who in her own inimitable style was determined to shine a light on an overlooked, misunderstood problem," William also wrote in the magazine.

After growing up with his mother's influence and passionate causes, the Duke was keen to set the same example for his own children.
