Prince William and his father Prince Charles are going to be pretty busy mid-February.
They're going to spend all their time between February 9th and 13th trying to help out animals by highlighting the illegal wildlife trade.
First, they'll head to the United for Wildlife Symposium at the Zoological Society London, then they'll head to a reception at the Natural History Museum. It's an event hosted by the U.K. government for the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade.
After that, they'll be attending the actual conference where the Duke of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales are really on top of their animal conservation game! They've got one hell of a busy week!
And a lot of it has to do with Princess Diana's legacy.
She instilled in them a love of animals, which Prince William plans to pass on to his son Prince George… in the form of a jungle-themed room!
So cute! Way to help the animals, you two!!

We previously mentioned Prince William listens to animal noises and African soundscapes to calm himself when he's feeling stressed — so of course he'd be upset when looking at photos of rhino poaching.
He was shown photos of rhinos who had been left for dead by poachers and said:
The life of a Royal seems like it's less a life in the lap of luxury and more a life constantly in the spotlight.
Things must get pretty stressful, but Prince William has a pretty healthy coping technique.
He doesn't hit the bottle, he listens to animal noises on his iPhone!
The Prince has loved Africa all his life, starting with amazing stories of adventure told to him by his mother Princess Diana.
So the sounds of Africa, the noises of the animal kingdom, help to calm and center him.

Well, of course! Who doesn't love the Royal Baby?? Have you SEEN the Official Portrait yet??? (You can see it HERE!)
Well, just before that, Prince William recently opened up about Prince George and his life as a father in his first sit-down interview since the royal baby was born, and in one of the clips released, Wills mentioned their family dog Lupo.
So how is this pup adjusting to sharing the spotlight with the new baby?
We've got a handsome hawk-eye view of the Duke of Cambridge!
Prince William visited the Anglesey show in Wales on Wednesday where he made his first solo public speech since Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince George.
The large agricultural show gave Wills the opportunity to say goodbye, seeing as his service with the Royal Air Force search-and-rescue tour was coming to an end, while also spending time with some horses and birds, including a very handsome hawk that he came very close with (above)!
During his speech, William also spoke about Kate and their new bundle of joy, and even spoke a bit of Welsh, saying:
You’d think a flower show would be free from danger but not this one!
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall made the rounds at the Sandringham Flower Show on Monday, and Charles got a little treat.
Zephyr the eagle was waiting near the end of their tour, and like the brave man he is, Prince Charles put on a glove and held the over 10lb bird of prey.
And he was smiling while he did it!
No fear here, despite the fact that the wings almost hit Charles at one point.
The lesson learned is that even when visiting something as innocent as a flower show, you can still stare a bird of prey in the eyes.

Prince George isn't the only baby around with the name George.
In fact - his new gift has his name!
Australia's Northern Territory has given the royal baby a most unusual gift! A baby crocodile! And its name is…George!
