Prince Harry & William join their dad at the premiere of ‘Our Planet’

View this post on Instagram

The Duke of Sussex attends the ‘Our Planet’ premiere at the Natural History Museum with The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Cambridge, lending their joint support for the protection of our environment. As president of @africanparksnetwork, The Duke of Sussex continues to advocate for the communities and wildlife that coexist in some of the most vulnerable environments around the world. Be it human wildlife conflict or natural disasters, these communities (park rangers, school children, families) are on the frontline of conservation and we must do more to help them as we also work to safeguard the animals and landscapes that are in critical danger. A few recent photos that look back on: Prince Harry’s long time commitment to this cause as well as a glimpse into the work he and The Duchess of Sussex did in 2017. Their Royal Highnesses travelled to Botswana to assist Dr. Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders in equipping a bull elephant with a satellite collar. Approximately 100 elephants are poached/killed every day for their ivory tusks. Using satellite technology allows conservationists to track their critical migratory patterns and to protect them and the local communities from human wildlife conflict. The elephant pictured was sedated for just 10 minutes before he was up and back with his herd. Tracking his movements has allowed conservationists to better protect him and other elephants and ensure heightened protection for these beautiful creatures moving forward. Credit: Image 1 PA

A post shared by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@sussexroyal) on

Since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex launched their Instagram account, their team has updated the IG feed with photos and information from Harry’s events this week. As you can see from the above IG, they’re much more detail oriented and comprehensive than the Kensington Palace team. Apparently, that kind of thing is by design – Vanity Fair says that Meghan and Harry will “help choose” which photographs go up on their ‘gram, and what issues they call attention to using their ‘gram. VF also says that Meghan and Harry will likely NOT get a Twitter feed. I’m still not 100% sure about that, but I was thinking back to when Clarence House finally acknowledged the hate being spewed online, and how big of an issue it is that there is no real way of moderating or shutting down comments on Twitter. Do you think that’s it? Do you think that’s why they’re just going to stick with Instagram? Because if worse comes to worst, they can just shut down the comments on Instagram?

Meanwhile, it seems that the renovation on Frogmore Cottage is finally done, or completed to the point where they’ve now moved in. Sources told People Magazine, “They’ll enjoy it much more in Windsor. They feel claustrophobic in their place in Kensington Palace.” It’s true – Nottingham Cottage is two-bedroom and reportedly it is like a dollhouse, everything is very cramped and tiny. Frogmore Cottage isn’t some grand castle, but the renovations mean that they’ll have space to really breathe and not be on top of each other constantly. That being said, I still believe that they will eventually have a spacious apartment within Kensington Palace. I just do. I think Frogmore is going to be their home for the next year or two, and then they’ll get an apartment in KP.

Here are some additional photos of Prince William, Harry, Charles and David Attenborough at the premiere of Our Planet last night. No duchesses, just princes. Harry and William did this for their dad. And I can’t help but stare at the body language. Also: in the Instagram at the top of this post, you’ll see a slide of Meghan and Harry during their first trip to Botswana.

    First, I am so stupidly excited for this. I love the David Attenborough documentaries on Netflix. If anyone has similar interest – the docuseries “Earth’s Great Events” is incredible. My favorite is “the Great Salmon Run.” I make everyone watch it. I love it.

    Second – the Sussex IG is already better than the KP IG, lol. Mainly just because it provides more detail, shares why a particular cause is important – its a lot less “The Duke went here, met with these people, learned about X and the importance of Y.” I noticed yesterday Clarence House and Sussex got their IG posts up pretty quickly, and then KP was a bit later. I wonder if they scrambled to add stuff about Africa and an extra picture or two (and I don’t mean that in a “we must beat SussexRoyal kind of way,” but rather in a “oh, we can learn a few things here” kind of way.)

    Third – the video of the Dukes and the PoW arriving at the museum is pretty interesting. Granted there is “protocol” so Charles is going to go first, then William and then Harry, but there seemed to be some tense body language between the brothers. Or maybe I just was looking for it so everything seems to be a sign now.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yeah the other SM accounts often don’t have information on them or the bare min whenever they do. U can tell straight off their is a strategy behind the Sussex account and it’s to promote the causes not the people and educate.

    • Becks1 says:

      VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE!!! Our Planet is available now on Netflix. I thought there would be some lag time, but NO. It’s already up!!!!!!!!

    • Haapa says:

      Thanks for the tip on “Nature’s Great Events”! I love any nature documentary involving David Attenborough.

  2. RoyalBlue says:

    My gut feeling is their second home will be an apartment in Buckingham Palace rather than KP.

    And yes I love @sussexroyal on IG, its attention to detail as it speaks to the different pictures and the provision of little tidbits it knows the fans want to hear.

    • Liz says:

      I agree with you. Frogmore will be their primary residence, but like Charles’ younger siblings, they will want/need a London base as well. Once the renovations at Buckingham Palace are finished, that is likely where they will end up, simply for the convenience and relative anonymity (more entrances/exits and larger staff coming and going all the time means it will be easier for them to slip in and out without notice).

      Once Charles is King, he seems likely to stay put in Clarance House and use Buckingham Palace as his office. His brothers will return to their renovated apartments in BP and H&M will join them. Kennsington will remain W&K’s base once he is POW. They will not relocate to Clarence House or St James. As the older generation (Gloucesters, Kents) die, their spaces will become part of the museum/office complex.

      • Sharon Lea says:

        I read on the DM that Meghan and Harry would have a suite at Buckingham Palace. KP seems too much of William and Kate’s homestead. Charles has Clarence House, this way they each have a place, and Granny is nearby!

    • Mary says:

      I read a couple of months ago that while H & M initially were going to move into Apt. 1, Kate and William decided that they wanted to use that apartment for state rooms. Which, if true, is not very nice…

  3. Susie says:

    Harry seem WAY more engaging than William….

    • Seraphina says:

      Yes. Exactly. Look at his body language and how engaged he is in the photos. And Wills, well Wills is ….Wills. I hope Kate being QC will keep her happy because I don’t see what Wills has except the heir to the throne. I think Megs got the way better end of the deal.

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      But doesn’t Harry work towards conservation more so that Will? That is what I have gathered from their charities and activities.

    • 90sgirl says:

      The Prince’s all arriving was great. I loved it.
      Charles and Harry seemed to engage with each other and looked really comfortable.
      William seemed tense outside anyway.

      Love David Attenborough

    • PrincessK says:

      At this event the first for William since the Kay article, he appears to have dark rings around his eyes.

  4. Vexa says:

    That photo of Meg and Harry with the elephant is so cool! I hope they post more of these ‘behind the scenes’ pics. I know some people will probably complain that it’s too ‘personal’ or whatever, but I actually like seeing that they’re engaged and willing to get involved in the issues they champion.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I noticed that, too. I’m wondering if that was the trip during which we all got to see a photo of the at the airport?

    • Lexa says:

      I don’t think the elephant photo was too personal, but I think it did raise a few brows about who funded that trip if it was, in fact, the same trip they supposedly took for Meghan’s birthday. I hope it was privately funded and they just happened to do volunteer work while there vs a charity-sponsored trip that then got turned into a vacation. I’m guessing it’s all privately funded, but I do think they’ll have to be careful and clear about stuff like that.

    • 90sgirl says:

      People are loving that photo.

      It was really cool.

      • PrincessK says:

        Yes, the picture was wonderful, it showed their unity and depth as kindred spirits and no wonder that Harry is determined to have Meghan as an equal partner in everything he does.

  5. runcmc says:

    Ok so I’m petty, but the Sussex IG post got more likes than the KP one about the same event. Even with around 4 million fewer followers, their engagement is higher.

    Also as for the body language- everyone seems to be pointing towards Charles and Harry and “boxing out” William who is awkwardly standing to the side. Hmmmm…

    • Kittycat says:

      William in these pictures look awkward but in other pictures he looks more engaged.

    • Anners says:

      All I could think about was that old Sesame Street song “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn’t belong” lol! Not a body language expert, but three of the four seem to be enjoying each others’ company (or are at least good at pretending).

    • PrincessK says:

      In one picture William touches his father, unusual. I think William who once upon a time really had no time for Charles is now jealous of Harry’s closeness to Charles, and is trying to muscle in.

  6. Loretta says:

    Harry is so hot in smoking, he looks like James Bond

    • Becks1 says:

      Its funny you say this, because for another post I was trying to find pictures of Kate in big diamond earrings (sometimes I laugh at the things I type, its true), and I came across pictures from the Spectre premiere a few years ago, and how Harry was getting a pen and asked Daniel Craig for an autograph and he was like “oh, for charity?” and a royal aide was like “no I think for him,” hahaha.

  7. Iknow says:

    The body language between the brothers was so icy and uncomfortable. William showed his discomfort more than Harry. I’m actually a little sad for them. Harry is coming up on a monumental stage in his life. I’m sad that it seems, from the outside, that the support he seem to have given William, may not be given to him. I can’t imagine, at this point, William being the doting, accepting uncle. I hope for their sake, their relationship can be fixed.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      It is very sad and I don’t think William has ever really supported Harry. William is a total brat who treats everyone around him like they r less than him, always has.

    • Enn says:

      It makes me sad too. I remember when I was younger and my sister and I were like cats and dogs. My mother always said “one day I’ll be gone and you’ll only have each other.” We’re thick as thieves now and I’m grateful for it. W&H went through a very unique childhood together and it’s a shame if Will’s pettiness is causing a wedge.

      It would be lovely for the Cambridge and Sussex kids to grow up together but I don’t see that happening.

    • V says:

      I think people like to project their feelings. Someone for example was noticing that they didn’t greet each other,but they arrived in the same car,so it wasn’t strange at all.

    • PrincessK says:

      Yes, very sad because William will be the only Uncle in baby Sussexes life. As baby Sussex is likely to be as or even more popular than his own kids , William may not like that.

  8. guest says:

    I guess we are at the point where Williams looks match his personality….ugly. 🙃

    • Erinn says:

      These kinds of comments are kind of funny… but at the same time, Harry’s hair really isn’t hanging in there a lot better. He’s getting pretty thin. But I’m a sucker for beards, so the beard does help. But I do wonder how he’s going to look in the next 5 years as well.

      • Becks1 says:

        I think it also helps that Harry’s hair is a bit curlier than Will’s, so it kind of helps to hide the thinning/baldness, lol.

      • guest says:

        To me Williams lack of hair doesnt make him ugly, bald can be beautiful. Its his face 🤔

      • AryasMum says:

        And Harry’s eyes are gravitating closer together, like Charles’s. Neither brother has kept their looks, but they don’t need it with their wealth, privilege, and status.

      • Anastasia says:

        I think Harry is going to pull off the bald look quite well. It’s funny–when they were kids, Harry was the awkward one and Will was the handsome one. They’ve switched places.

    • Cammy says:

      I think William would still be considered the more attractive one if he had that mop of blonde hair to hide his egg head lol he has a beautiful, strong features that have aged well.🤷 Too bad (or good?) he was either comfortable going bald or too ‘above it’ to get plugs. Harry is always sexy

  9. Weaver says:

    KP’s Instagram now has the same format as SussexRoyal with detailed captions. It’s obvious they copied. Why didn’t KP have this format for the past 6 years or so? It only just now occurred to them to put context and details to Royal appearances? Meghan’s influence and Social media experience is all over this.

    • Mego says:

      Yes Meghan has more skills re social media than the paid staff at KP. I think she is very much influencing the sussexroyal insta thank goodness. She must have gotten very weary of KP’s ineptitude.

    • 90sgirl says:

      The Sussex Instagram is so good.
      There’s a nice picture of Prince Harry,David Attenborough , Prince Charles and Prince William on the Sussex Instagram.
      Also Prince Harry’s recent Royal outings have been on two social sites this week
      The Royal Family Twitter (Buck Palace)
      And the Sussex new Instagram.

      I also love the personal thank you to everyone from Meghan and Harry for the Global Sussex Baby Shower

  10. Valiantly Varnished says:

    That body language…what I find most interesting about it is that William isnt even TRYING to engage. Harry is talking to his father and Attenborough and Wills is just hanging out with an awkward smile.
    My feeling is that William doesn’t actually know how to carry on a conversation in situations like this. He doesn’t have a natural charm that allows him to engage with whoever he is with like Harry does.

    • Agenbiter says:

      That actually makes me sorry for William. Imagine inheriting a big job you have no aptitude for, especially when you are going to constantly be compared with someone who has the skills and enjoys taking an interest in others. Didn’t Diana say it was a shame Harry wasn’t the heir?

      • Mego says:

        I think William lacks necessary character traits like a sense of duty, work ethic and true empathy to really shine (hard to believe he is Charles and Diana’s son). His partner in marriage is no challenge to him either. I get the vibe from William that he would love nothing better than to ditch the ball and chain and live the life of a playboy. Harry looks truly joyful to be a husband and soon to be dad.

    • V says:

      I looked at the other pics from the event,and he looked quite engaging, talking comfortably with other people. I really don’t get the vibe that he doesn’t know how to carry conversations.
      Also,none of the brothers has ever displayed this great work ethic and sense of duty… unless we want to rewrite history.

  11. TeamAwesome says:

    I only see two main looks from William in these photos: awkward and smug a-hole.

  12. Molly says:

    Good, I hope they stay off Twitter. Twitter doesn’t deserve H&M. It can’t behave itself.
    You can also delete individual comments and manage them better on Instagram, so that may help manage the vitriol a bit.

    • BlueSky says:

      I agree, Twitter can be so toxic and maybe they think IG is easier to control because they can turn off comments on IG.
      And yeah I noticed the body language right away when I saw the IG post. I’m sad that they don’t seem as close as they were when they were children.

      • 90sgirl says:

        Harry’s events have been on The Royal Family Twitter this week ,( the Buckingham Palace Twitter ) go look you’ll see the events he did the past few days .

  13. Leesa says:

    I didn’t realize they were both so much taller than Charles. Has he shrunk recently?

    • Anastasia says:

      Everyone shrinks a tiny bit with age, but yes, I think once they both reached their full height, it was taller than their dad.

      • Citresse says:

        William has the large and tall features of his late grandfather Johnny Spencer, including the large Spencer head.
        Harry is more like his aunt Sarah. Diana certainly brought height to the Windsors.

      • Citresse says:

        Sorry my spelling error; William’s late grandfather Spencer was known as Johnnie Spencer.

  14. mm says:

    The Kensington Palace Instagram mentioned Sir David Attenborough whereas the Sussex Instagram didn’t. I wouldn’t call the Sussex team detail oriented or comprehensive because of that. The focus on that post was misplaced.

  15. Lucile Raines says:

    I did respect Wills, even though he never seemed to be too happy or engaged with the 3 kiddies … Kate looks like a loving, caring, mom to them …. but if he really had an affair with her (Rose) and disrespected Kate that way , when she was pregnant and sick, then I don’t think he is deserving of her respect …. like all men, why can’t he keep it in his pants when his wife is carrying his child ……. Kate did not deserve this … I hope her sister and other family are there for her …. ✝️✝️

  16. Xoxo says:

    I really saw something different here.

    William is engaging with David Attenborough and Harry has been given his father to contain. Prince Charles looks drunk to me and in one picture on the Daily Mail extremely pissed off. Almost like DA said something to set him off. Harry’s expression looks very forced along with those of some of the meet and greets. Not the Beckhams obviously.
