PRINCE William has slammed people involved in illegally trading rhino horn — saying: “My message to them is simply ‘Stop’.”

The Duke of Cambridge added they were “extremely ignorant, selfish and utterly wrong”.

Black rhinos are critically endangered in the wild because of the soaring price of their hornworth more than gold due to demand in some countries.

It is perceived to have medicinal properties and in some Asian countries is believed to hold a cure for cancer and act as an aphrodisiac.

Poaching has had a dramatic impact on all rhino populations in the wild and it is believed they could soon be extinct if they continue to be killed.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Wills, 29, said of people buying or poaching rhino horn: “I think they are extremely ignorant. I think they are selfish. I think they are wrong, totally and utterly wrong.

“It makes me very angry, it’s a waste.”

He added: “If we don’t do something about them it is going to be a tragic loss for everyone.

“My message to them is simply ’Stop’.

“It’s a message about educating people and understanding that when you buy that rhino horn, or when you buy that ivory, you are taking this from an animal that has been slaughtered for this decorative ornament you have on your mantelpiece and you have at home — is that really what you desire and what you feel is right in the world?”
