The Duke of Cambridge will say in a documentary broadcast on Monday that extreme weather patterns could have drastic consequences for his grandmother’s estate in Norfolk, where the royals celebrate each Christmas. The land has been owned by the Royal Family since 1862.


William, 38, will warn that his family could “lose the whole lot” in the documentary set to air on ITV.

Viewers will see him standing on the estate’s Wolferton marshes as he predicts gloomy days ahead for the site.

He says: “I’ve seen the water level on this bank within a millimetre or two of coming over the top.

“And you suddenly realise those extreme events are going to happen more and more in the future and also how low-lying particularly this part of East Anglia all is.

“It could really, very drastically, change.

“We’ll lose the whole lot and it [the water] will sweep in and stay.

“When sea levels rise, it will stay, it will not go back out again like everyone thinks it will. It will be a flood.”

The father-of-three says wildlife habitats are at risk of being wiped out if his forecast comes true.
