PRINCE Wil­liam yes­ter­day warned ele­phants, rhi­nos and tigers could be ex­tinct in the wild be­fore Ge­orge and Char­lotte are in their 20s.

“I for one am not will­ing to look my chil­dren in the eye and say that we were the gen­er­a­tion that let this hap­pen on our watch,” he told the Il­le­gal Wildlife Trade con­fer­ence in Lon­don.

He called for ac­tion to end poach­ing — by tar­get­ing the crime king­pins who fund it, adding: “They are the very same groups who move drugs, peo­ple and weapons.”
