Sad news from The Telegraph:
Prince Harry will give up hunting because Meghan does not like it, the Duke’s fellow conservation champion Dr Jane Goodall has said.
Harry and Meghan are both fans of the world-renowned chimpanzee activist, 86, and the Prince interviewed her for Vogue magazine last year.
Harry and Meghan are now living in lockdown close to Hollywood, Los Angeles. Dr Goodall said she thought Harry is finding the move to LA amid the global pandemic “a bit challenging” following his move to North America from Canada and may give up hunting because of Meghan, who is a keen animal activist.
Her comments come after Harry has skipped several Royal Family hunts, with some sources close to the couple claiming he has shunned the activity because of Meghan.
The activist believes that Harry and his brother, the Duke of Cambridge, work to protect the natural world – apart from when they hunt.
She told the Radio Times: “Yes [they champion the natural world] except they hunt and shoot. But I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting, so I suspect that is over for him.
“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but yes, I’ve been in touch, though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging just now.”
Harry has missed several huntings, including the Royal’s annual summer holiday hunt at Balmoral in Scotland in August 2018. He also missed the Royal Boxing Day shoot at Sandringham in 2017.
In another interview with Jane Goodall in September’s edition of Vogue magazine, Harry pledged not to have “too many” children of his own in light of the environmental pressures facing the planet.
The Duke, who has one baby boy, Archie, said having a son had made him think more about the environment, underlining how he “should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation”.
