Prince William has opened up in a new interview with CNN saying he will bring up Prince George as if he lived in the wild. The new parents have decided on an African-themed nursery for their son.

"I'll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room. We'll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We'll] make him grow up as if he's in the bush," the Duke of Cambridge stated.

The 31-year-old also added that he hoped that one day his son will experience Africa the way he and Prince Harry saw it on their trips with their parents. In the one-hour special documentary, Prince William's Passion: New Father, New Hope, he reveals his love for Africa and his dream of saving the world's endangered species. Prince Williams also speaks about how his life has changed since the birth of his son, as he lovingly calls him a rascal.

"He is growing quite quickly actually. But he's a little fighter. He kind of, he wriggles around quite a lot. And he doesn't want to go to sleep that much, which is a little bit of a problem. He's a little bit of a rascal, put it that way. So he either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger. I'm not sure. But he's doing very well at the moment," he said.

This will be Prince William's first full interview after the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to the couple's first child. It airs on 15 September, Sunday 3am BST on CNN.
