The Duke of Cambridge spoke about the current rush for space travel in an interview with the BBC’s Newscast podcast, which aired on Thursday.
He added: “We need some of the greatest minds and minds in the world who are trying to repair this planet, not going and trying to find the next place to live.”
William, a former air ambulance helicopter pilot, said he had “absolutely no interest” in going as high as space.
He also expressed concern over the environmental impact of space tourism, saying there was a “fundamental question” over the carbon cost of space flights.
Bezos isn’t the only wealthy entrepreneur to make the leap into space travel recently.
Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic and SpaceX are all expected to continue in their effort to promote space tourism.
The father of three emphasized his desire to ensure that his own children and future generations would not have to worry about repairing the earth, saying it would be an “absolute disaster” if his son Prince George was talking about saving the planet in 30 years’ time.
