Robert recently spoke with PEOPLE about Prince William, saying he “is a real beacon to everyone in the conservation field.”

“It’s hard to put into words just how massive Earthshot is for wildlife conservation, for climate action, for the world. For Prince William, who has such a great platform, to lend his voice, his resources into creating positive change is such a refreshing, wonderful thing to see. I applaud what he is doing,” Robert told PEOPLE

With Robert’s dedication to wildlife conservation, it’s only right that he is an advocate and ambassador for Earthshot. 

“I have dedicated my life to wildlife conservation. I share that with Prince WIlliam and I admire him greatly. He is certainly someone I look up to and I hope I can create the same sort of change that he does. He is a real beacon to everyone in the conservation field,” Robert told PEOPLE.

We hope to see this iconic duo together again in the future!
