Prince Harry still has his late grandfather, Prince Philip in mind. The 36-year-old Duke of Sussex narrated a new video for African Parks in honor of Earth Day and gave Philip special recognition in the process.
“On this Earth Day, I reflect on generations of conservation advocates, including my late grandfather, and I am proud and energetic to continue to do my part in this legacy,” Harry said in a statement. “This year especially, I join the incredible team of African Parks and communities around the world in a shared dedication to our environment and collective well-being.”
Harry narrates the clip, which shows impressive images of African parks.
“These vital landscapes are helping to safeguard Africa’s biodiversity, serving as the foundation for a healthy planet and bringing benefits to hundreds of thousands of people,” he says.
He concludes the clip with an encouraging message saying, “Hope starts here with the places we are protecting now to ensure a healthy future for all.”
Harry has served as president of African Parks since 2017. The organization is comprised of 19 parks in 11 countries in Africa.
The duke recently returned home to California after attending his grandfather’s funeral in Windsor, England, last week. His wife, Meghan Markle, was not allowed to travel as she is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child, a girl, who will be born this summer.
