Prince Harry is opening up about how he wants to change the world to give his son Archie a better future. Harry wrote a foreword for African Parks’ annual report. According to E! News, he’s the charity’s president.
African Parks is a non-profit conservation organization. According to the website, the organization is responsible for “the rehabilitation and long-term management of protected areas in partnership with governments and local communities.”
Prince Harry Looks Toward His Son’s Future
Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have a 13-month-old son named Archie Harrison. Harry wrote about his hope of creating a future Archie and other children can look forward to through conservation efforts.
“Since becoming a father, I feel the pressure is even greater to ensure we can give our children the future they deserve, a future that hasn’t been taken from them, and a future full of possibility and opportunity,” Harry wrote in his foreword.
“I want us all to be able to tell our children that yes, we saw this coming,” Harry continued, “and with the determination and help from an extraordinary group of committed individuals, we did what was needed to restore these essential ecosystems.”
He acknowledged that the current coronavirus pandemic creates new obstacles, and wrote, “The gravity of these challenges is coming to light, but we must not be paralyzed by them.”
Meghan Markle Supports Black Lives Matter
Prince Harry isn’t the only one speaking out about important issues. His wife Meghan recently delivered a graduation speech to her alma mater, the Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles.
In the video, Meghan addressed the recent protests over the death of George Floyd and other victims of police brutality. “Black lives matter,” she said, adding, “George Floyd’s life mattered, and Breonna Taylor’s life mattered, and Philando Castile’s life mattered, and Tamir Rice’s life mattered.”
“We are seeing people stand in solidarity, we are seeing communities come together and to uplift,” Meghan told graduates in the clip. “And you are going to be part of this movement.”
Meghan said she was nervous about speaking out and worried that people might pick apart her statement. But she emphasized that “the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing.” A source has said Meghan and Harry are going to be doing “a lot more work” for Black Lives Matter in the near future.
