Prince Harry shares stunning photos from his personal collection

Prince Harry has celebrated Earth Day in a very special way, by sharing a series of photographs from his own personal collection.

The royal seems to share similar artistic passions to his sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, after both exhibited raw photographs of what they love.

Posting to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official Instagram, the images show a range of stunning landscapes and wildlife photographs the Prince has been faced with during his royal duties.

“Today is #earthday – an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home,” the caption began on social media.

The first photograph in the long gallery collection of images shows Prince Harry and his wife, 37-year-old Duchess Meghan, walking through one of New Zealand’s beloved Redwood forests while during the Royal Tour of the Pacific last year.

“Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today,” the caption went on to read.

“Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental [point of view].”

The images include a photograph of the rhino Africa’s Unicorn, Botswana’s Okavango Delta, desert lions, orca and humpback whales.

A range of stunning landscapes were also included in the confronting collection, including snaps of Guyana’s forests, as well as a raw image of plastic waste on a beach. Finishing off the personal gallery is a picture of an elephant captured in Malawi.

The royal couple, who are soon-to-be parents for the very first time, recently launched their official Instagram account, where they have included their personal passions as well as more information about their charities.

“Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day.”
