In a moving letter, Prince Harry spoke of his new role as a father. The Duke of Sussex opened up about the great pressure he had felt since the birth of his son Archie just over a year ago.
There are many upheavals in Prince Harry’s life. Within a few months, the youngest son of Lady Diana and Prince Charles became engaged, married and then became the father of a little Archie.
The young man also left the British royal family and moved to Los Angeles with his wife. This was an opportunity for the Duke of Sussex to take a step back and look after his own people, not without some concerns.
Indeed, in an open letter, written for the African Parks association of which he has been president since 2017, Prince Harry gave more details about his role as a father, as revealed by our colleagues from Hello magazine, and in particular showed concern for future generations.
“Since becoming a father, I feel that there is even more pressure to give our children the future they deserve, a future that has not been taken away from them, and a future full of possibilities and opportunities,” said Archie’s father with gravity, “I want us all to be able to tell our children that yes, we saw it coming, and that with the determination and help of an extraordinary group of committed people, we did what it took to restore these vital ecosystems”.
A Cry From The Heart
In love with Africa, Prince Harry also delivered a beautiful declaration of love to this continent that has brought him so much. “I’ve always been grateful for what the wilderness has to offer.
Since my first trip to Africa when I was young, I knew I would return to the continent if I could, for its wildlife, its people and its vast expanses.” Riches which the Duke of Sussex intends to preserve.
Then from Los Angeles, the young prince sounded the alarm. “We are in a crisis of extinction, and now a global pandemic that has shaken us to our core and paralyzed the world.
As far as the extinction crisis is concerned, the science is clear: We may have a decade to correct the situation before we lock in our fate.” Lonely and a little lost in California, Prince Harry hasn’t forgotten the missions that are dear to his heart. If a return to the UK doesn’t seem to be in order, a trip to Africa could give him a renewed desire to fight for noble causes.
