Prince Edward took his family litter picking on the beach yesterday to highlight the rise of plastic waste.

Edward and wife Sophie were joined by daughter Louise, 16, and son James, 12

They warned of a rise in single-use plastic pollution over the past few months and a lack of advice on how to safely dispose of PPE and face masks.

Sophie said: “There is no information about how people should dispose of them.”

She added: “We aren’t being told what to do with them.

“Obviously we would want to encourage people to use these lovely reusable masks, but sometimes you can’t. It’s so difficult because councils are stretched at the moment.

“But if they were to make recycling units available for people to use.

The royals said there has been a lack of advice on how to safely dispose of PPE and face masks.

Louise cheerily chatted to her dad as they volunteered on the beach

“Medical facilities and the medical profession obviously know what to do with it, they will have recycling facilities.

“I don’t know whether they incinerate, I’m not sure… but we just don’t know what to do with them.

“In an ideal world we would all just use these lovely reusable ones.”

The prince looked engross in his litter-picking duties
