The Duke has been working with African Parks since 2016

The Duke of Sussex has been closely linked to the organisation since 2016 and has been working hard since then to make a noticeable and lasting impact.

His work primarily consists of working alongside the AP's board with CEO Peter Fearnhead to propel the NGO's mission by shining a light on the most pressing conservation issues.

Speaking to Town & Country Magazine, Harry said: "I completely fell in love with African Parks because they get things done. They make tough decisions, and they stick to principles."

The news coincides with Meghan's birthday who celebrated her 41st on Thursday. Meghan is thought to be celebrating her special day in private where she'll no doubt be waited upon by her husband Prince Harry and their two adorable children Archie, three, and Lilibet, who turned one in June.
