Harry could give up hunting because Meghan dislikes the sport, says Jane Goodall

Sky News reports Prince Harry could give up hunting because his wife dislikes the sport, according to conservationist Dr Jane Goodall.

In an interview with Radio Times, Dr Goodall said she had spoken to the Duke of Sussex since he and Meghan stepped down as senior royals.

At the suggestion that Harry and his brother, the Duke of Cambridge, were champions of the natural world, she said: “Yes, except they hunt and shoot. But I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting, so I suspect that is over for him.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have previously championed environmental causes, including setting up an eco-tourism initiative, Travelyst, under their Sussex Royal Foundation.

Meghan also asked for her earnings from her voiceover role on Disney+ film Elephant to be donated to Elephants Without Borders, a wildlife charity supported by Harry.

Dr Goodall, 86, said she thought Harry was finding life “a bit challenging” following his move to Los Angeles.

“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but yes, I’ve been in touch, though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging just now,” she said.

Harry and Meghan are both fans of the world-renowned activist, who was invited to their home at Frogmore Cottage in June last year.

The Duke of Sussex also interviewed Dr Goodall for Meghan’s Forces of Change Vogue edition.

The Sussexes stepped down as senior royals at the end of last month, saying they would become “financially independent” and “carve out a progressive new role”.

Last month, they were reported to have been living in lockdown close to Hollywood during the coronavirus pandemic.
