During an interview for an upcoming documentary about wildlife conservation in Africa, the Duke of Cambridge got teary-eyed after watching clips of a butchered rhino bleeding to death, the Daily Express reported.
William, who welcomed the royal baby with wife Kate in July, confessed that the birth of child has been a very unique and emotional experience for him, something he never thought he would ever get to feel.
The second in line to the throne, 31, asserted that when he sees a gruesome clip like that, there's so much emotion and feeling wrapped up into conservation and environment, and it's just so powerful.
The Prince claimed that fatherhood has heightened his protective instincts and desire to stand up for the vulnerable.
William added that since he became a father, his emotional connect with Africa has been reinforced.
The documentary, titled 'Prince William's Passion: New Father, New Hope', will be screened on ITV and CNN.
