Prince William paid a visit to the BFI Southbank in London on Monday evening for the Tusk Conservation Awards 2021. The Prince’s visit took place hours before the airing of the first instalment of a new programme titled The Princes And The Press on BBC2.

The programme will explore the relationships of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with the press.

More than 80 hours of interviews have taken place for the programme, and it will be presented by the BBC’s Media Editor, Amol Rajan.

A second episode is due to air next week looking at 2018 to 2021.

The period is thought to have been turbulent for the Royal Family following the bombshell exit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from their senior royal roles.

Although there has been controversy leading up to the airing of the BBC documentary, a body language expert told William looked “laid-back” during his outing on Monday.

Body language expert Judi James told “If William is a man quietly overwhelmed by the pressure of tonight’s BBC documentary, he’s doing a very able job of not showing it here.

“His walk into the venue was unusually laid-back tonight, more of a signal of control and relaxed power than anything implying worry, anxiety or distress.

“If he’s sharing any emotions via his non-verbal cues here it would veer on the side of weary-looking anger, from the slight edge-to-edge teeth showing in his smile and the puckering of his upper lip when his mouth is closed.

“Those double rounded-finger gestures he’s performing as he walks suggests precise thinking from the touch of the finger and thumb tips, plus feelings of being ‘right’ and the way his arms are slightly bent suggests he’s prepared to fight to prove that.”

The outing in London was an important one for Prince William, as the annual Tusk Conservation Awards is known to be patronage close to his heart.

The ceremony aims to honour wildlife conservationists who are working to protect endangered species in Africa.

William looked particularly dapper for the visit, wearing a smart royal blue suit with a white shirt.

The Duke presented winners with awards at the special event and he also made a short speech.

Conservation, climate change and environmentalism are at the forefront of William’s work as a senior royal.

In this respect, William is following in the footsteps of his father Prince Charles and his late grandfather Prince Philip, who both championed environmental causes.

Willliam’s appearance at the Tusk Conservation Awards follows a string of environmental engagements for the future King in recent months.

Prince William represented the Queen at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow this month.

And William also recently launched his inaugural Earthshot Prize Awards in October of this year with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.

The charitable initiative offers grants from the Royal Foundation to people working to combat the climate crisis.
