Prince William has expressed his concerns about rising sea levels and other impacts of climate change in a television documentary to be aired in Britain on Monday.

William, grandson of Queen Elizabeth and second-in-line to the British throne, was interviewed on the royal Sandringham Estate, which is located in East Anglia, England.

ITV said part of William’s message in the film was that climate change posed threats to everyone, including in Britain.

“You’ll lose the wildlife habitats here, you’d lose the farming, you’d lose the communities,” William said, according to a report on the ITV website.

“It’s in everyone’s interest that we protect these sorts of areas. We have to get on top of the climate change issue.”
