Prince Harry posted a candid photo on the official Instagram account he shares with Markle. According to the caption, the royal’s efforts will be remembered for years to come.
“The Duke planted a baobab, which are severely under threat across Africa, which will live for 1000 years!” it read. “Each child grew their sapling from seed in a mission to restore the Chobe Forest Reserve. They were all grown in recycled milk tins from the elephant orphanage, using fertilized soil from the orphans’ dung!”
During the visit, Prince Harry met with his close pal Dr. Mike Chase, who is the founder of Elephants Without Borders, a charity dedicated to helping the elephants and people of Botswana.
The post concluded with a quote from Prince Harry himself, saying, “If you look after nature, it will look after you.”
The outing comes just one day after the couple brought baby Archie to meet famed activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe, in Cape Town.
While we don’t know exactly why Markle and Archie stayed behind for the Botswana stop, we don’t blame the duchess for taking some much needed mommy and me time.
