Prince William set to 'rival' Prince Harry with new podcast appearance just weeks before the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes' podcast series launches.

Prince William has 'rivalled' his estranged brother Prince Harry in a new podcast where he discusses the world's environmental problems.

The Duke of Cambridge has beaten Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the airwaves weeks before their first Spotify series Archetypes (opens in new tab) podcast is released later this summer.

Prince William has already sat down with Australian actress Cate Blanchett to discuss the world's environmental crisis on the Audible podcast, Climate of Change.

As Prince William 'rivals' Prince Harry, he isn't the only member of the Royal Family who is going head to head with the Duke of Sussex as the Queen is releasing her own behind-the-scenes book (opens in new tab) on royal life ahead of the release of Prince Harry's explosive memoir (opens in new tab).

Meghan is set to talk about daughter Lilibet-Diana (opens in new tab) in the upcoming series which looks at female stereotypes, in which she vows to investigate "labels that try to hold women back".

Prince William's podcast appearance sees him talk about the solutions out there to "protect and repair our planet". He discusses Earth Shot Prize, his love of the environment and so much more with Cate Blanchett and Danny Kennedy.

Prince William previously revealed son Prince George's frustrations over littering (opens in new tab), he urged that there was 'no time to waste' (opens in new tab) when tackling climate change and he announced a new project with Sir David Attenborough (opens in new tab) last year.

Speaking candidly, he also praised his father Prince Charles and grandfather Prince Philip for his appreciation of the natural world.

The father-of-three, to Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, said his appreciation of the natural world was "piqued" by his father and grandfather's "passion" for it, and described boyhood memories of climbing trees, digging ditches and being out in the "wild and the wet".

He added, "And I think my grandfather, my father, both kind of having a deep passion and interest in this area for many years, has sort of piqued my interest and my curiosity.

"So growing up, I was surrounded by kind of this adventure and this idea of exploring and being out in the garden. I used to spend hours climbing trees, digging ditches and all sorts of things - hiding in dens and all sorts round the garden.

"So I used to love being out in the sort of wild and the wet."
