Prince Harry’s patronage African Parks re-releases his voiceover video for Earth Day


Yesterday was Earth Day, and the British royals celebrated in their own ways. For Prince Harry, one of his patronages re-released a video with Harry’s voiceover. The patronage is African Parks. Harry is president of the NGO, having taken over the position from Prince Philip. Harry has been deeply involved with conservation efforts and on-the-ground work supporting sanctuaries, parks and Africa’s rich biodiversity. Here’s a clip of Harry’s voiceover:

As you can imagine, the British media has chosen this moment to talk about planes and how much Harry has flown over the years. I’m not saying that Harry has no room to improve – he absolutely does on this issue. But I just wish his haters would keep the same energy for He Who Is Engorged With Rage and his private helicopter, not to mention the Prince of Wales’ near-constant travel and air miles. Here’s the press release from African Parks:

In recognition of Earth Day, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex and African Parks are shining a light on the role effectively managed Protected Areas play in preserving biodiversity and in delivering life-altering benefits to local communities.

In a special re-release of the African Parks video “Hope Starts Here”, The Duke of Sussex highlights the importance of adequately resourcing National Parks and Protected Areas so they can deliver essential services like clean air and water, food security, carbon sequestration, jobs, education, and healthcare. Since 2017, Prince Harry has served as the President of African Parks, a conservation NGO which manages 19 parks in 11 countries on behalf of governments and communities across Africa.

“As we now begin to move towards an era of global recovery and regeneration, it’s critical that we continue to look at the strengthening and protecting of biodiversity, not just as a value we hold—but as a responsibility that is vital to our way of life,” said Prince Harry, President of African Parks. “On this Earth Day, I reflect on generations of conservation champions, including my late grandfather, and feel proud and energised to continue doing my part in this legacy. This year especially, I join the incredible African Parks team and communities around the world in shared dedication to our environment and collective wellbeing.”

Prince Harry has worked with African Parks since 2016 where he helped them complete their historic 500 Elephant translocation in Malawi, and is currently assisting the organisation to grow to 30 parks under management by 2030.

“The elephants have my back, so step off or they’ll stomp you into oblivion,” he added. Seriously, a nice way to honor his late grandfather and do something for Earth Day.

His voice is rich like butter!

    I thought it was really pretty video, love the voiceover.

    And omg the plane thing again?? Can Harry do better with flying and private planes and all that? of course he can. but I have the same argument now that I had in 2018 when he was being destroyed for it – have that same energy for William and Charles. William who takes a helicopter on a regular basis, so much that they had a privacy hedge built so people can’t track the comings and goings. Charles who hates to fly commercial, even first class. Lets talk bring that same energy for them, and then we can talk about Harry.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I have a question that hopefully someone can answer. If a person took the QEII luxury liner from NYC to a port in England (South Hampton???), would the carbon footprint be less than taking a commercial flight from JFK to Heathrow?

      • Becks1 says:

        I don’t know, cruise ships have a pretty big carbon footprint as I understand it.

      • C-Shell says:

        This is from

        “ Research shows that cruising emits up to four times more CO2 per passenger than flying. While air travel costs between 0,11 and 0,16 kg per passenger per kilometer – a significant amount -, taking a cruise ship adds up to a staggering 0,40 kilograms per kilometer.”

        While the QEII isn’t probably as huge as a commercial cruise ship, it also carries a tiny fraction of the passengers, so the carbon per passenger is outsized.

      • nutella toast says:

        The QE2 is now docked permanently in the new marina at Dubai’s Port Rashid, within easy reach of Dubai International Airport and all local attractions, and most cruise liners aren’t operating right now. So what would be acceptable? Paddle boarding from Cali? Harry is likely flown a LOT less than the other royals in the past 14 months. This is all so…petty.

      • equality says:

        Cruise ships generate more CO2 per passenger mile than taking a jet. There are also issues with cruise ships not treating waste before dumping it in the ocean.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Cruise ships pollute a lot, and I love taking cruises. They are trying to improve but they still emit a lot of pollutants and waste. They’re floating cities and use a lot of power. The next generation of ships are being designed to be LNG powered , but a lot of ships out there aren’t run like that. A lot of cruise companies have been fined as well for dumping waste at sea. The demands for cleaner cruising is coming from the customers and being shamed into it, as well as cost. Also, most ships are grounded due to Covid and it spreads faster on a ship. It takes 5/6 days to cross the Atlantic on a cruise liner and Harry is not doing a Greta Thunberg in a catamaran for 2 weeks with 30 foot swells. Like it or not, we’re stuck with jets for now.

    • Sofia says:

      Agree re private jets. It’s fine to criticise as long as you’re keeping the same energy towards William and Charles.

    • Amy Bee says:

      The only private jet that we know for sure Harry took was when Elton allowed them to stay at his home in Nice. And I can understand why they took it given what we know now of Meghan’s mental health struggles at the time. Furthermore, the British press has no problem with Harry taking private jets to visit his family in the UK as they constantly suggest that he take one to return to the UK. People have to fly to get to places, most environmentalists admit that flying is a necessary evil until a cleaner alternative is found. The British press didn’t complain about Harry’s flying in for the funeral and they want him to return for the statue unveiling.

    • goofpuff says:

      So these are the same people demanding he fly over to the UK and then trashing him for it. yep.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Harry made it clear that they travel privately when it is a security issue, particularly around his wife and child. From what is known, he flew commercial to and from the UK for the funeral. Meanwhile, W&K likely took a helo to Sandringham while pretending to be green.

      • swirlmamad says:

        This. I simply refuse to get up in arms about this. We are in the 21st century and air travel is a thing and it is NOT going anywhere. By all accounts H&M learned their lesson from the Elton private plane debacle — they have been reported to fly commercial for the most part since then. I’m not sure what else these people expect them to do — paddle by canoe? When they start pressing Charles and Will on the same issue, then we can have a discussion about Harry.

  2. Seraphina says:

    As the saying goes, haters gonna hate no matter what.
    He has a very sexy voice and when combined with the accent and the package that comes with it – SWOON. And we all know he is physically fit. Swoon again. Sorry ladies, I know it’s TMI but I could not help myself.

  3. Aphra says:

    Wow, what a photo of him kneeling at that lady’s feet!!!! So profound!

    • Seraphina says:

      @Aphra, good catch. He is his mother’s son through and through. The one who should be FFK.

  4. TeamMeg says:

    I was really happy to see this. I know it’s a re-release, but still. Let’s focus on what’s important. Funeral is over, duty done. Now, back to business!

  5. Myra says:

    If they don’t have the same energy for Charles and William, then there’s no need to bring up Harry’s emissions. Either have an honest discussion or drop the pretense. Harry’s voice is great. I’m still eagerly waiting for the next podcast episode. Disney should call Meghan for animation voice overs. Her voice is so soothing. Perfect for bedtime stories, as well.

  6. Jan says:

    I wonder how much more Harry could’ve done, if he was not held back, to not show up his lazy brother or his spineless father, asking who is going to pay for it.

  7. Amy Bee says:

    Philip was never involved with African Parks.

    • ElleE says:

      @AmyBee ummm perhaps it is a cause he took up-not a “position” he took over?
      Some possibly unreliable P.Philip info via yahoo “Philip’s efforts with conservation included being the president of the World Wildlife Fund – U.K. from 1961 to 1982. Later, he served as the international president of the WWF.” No mention of African Parks

  8. NancyNancy says:

    I have a hard time getting flexed over his flying habits. I am grateful for everything he, his father and even his brother has done to bring attention to preserving nature and wildlife for future generations. This piece is really beautiful and his voice is hot hot hot. Clearly he has gotten some coaching on managing his voice from his talented, trained wife. Well done Harry! And more please!!

  9. JT says:

    He does have a great voice, so great that sometimes I cannot finish the videos. For some reason I feel like I’m intruding, if that makes sense.

    Also Harry was trending with Greta Thunberg, Joe Biden, and others for Earth Day so this voice over did its job in bringing publicity to this patronage. Well done Harry.

  10. JT says:

    Double post

  11. Jan says:

    Dailyfail is suing Google, claiming they are not giving them enough Searches on the Royal Family, especially Piss Moran articles.
    The Fail is saying, it’s because they don’t buy a lot of Ads from Google, could it be that people are not that interested in the Royal family or getting their news from more reliable sources, not that they’re many in the U.K.

    • goofpuff says:

      That seems like a very embarrassing thing to sue over and thus make it public fodder, for the Daily Fail.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      That’s rich, isn’t it? The Daily Fail suing on behalf on their own!! Sit down DF and STFU! No one cares about you or your smug and evil paper.

  12. Ginger says:

    Harry’s voice is incredible. They both have amazing voices and should do more voice over work.

  13. NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

    There’s something so serene about his voice. I feel like Harry has it in him to be the next Oprah in that if we gave him a talk show. I imagine he’d run with it and be a billionaire with his own business empire in 5 years tops. We’re only at year 1 so I’ll check back in on this prediction in 4 years.

  14. Monica says:

    Harry is using his vast charisma for good. And it’s only going to get better.
