Prince Harry receives some very happy news on Meghan Markle’s birthday

The Duke of Sussex offers his patronage to African Parks, a conservation charity protecting African wildlife, which today announced the completion of a translocation operation.

Prince Harry must be pleased to know that the charity contributed to moving hundreds of elephants and other animals such as including impala, buffalo, warthog, sable and waterbuck.

The wildlife was translocated from Liwonde National Park to Kasungu National Park in Malawi, in a conservation initiative.

Prince Harry has worked with African Parks since 2016 when he helped them complete their historic 500 Elephant translocation in Malawi.

The Duke is helping the organisation to grow to 30 parks under management by 2030.

In a campaign launched last year, the Prince appeared in a video about the importance of adequately resourcing National Parks and Protected Areas.

The aim is to enable the parks to deliver essential services like clean air and water, food security, carbon sequestration, jobs, education, and healthcare.

The news of the charity’s milestone came as Harry celebrated his wife, Meghan Markle, who turned 41 today.

The Royal Family also posted wishes for the Duchess of Sussex’s birthday on social media, sharing pictures of her to mark the occasion.

Charles and Camilla’s Twitter account posted a similar image of Meghan from the service alongside a balloon emoji and the words “Happy birthday to The Duchess of Sussex!”

Meghan and Harry have established a new life for themselves in the celebrity enclave of Montecito in California.

They have bought a multimillion-pound home and launched a non-profit foundation, after stepping down as working royals for financial freedom in 2020.

The couple have also signed lucrative deals – thought to be worth well over £100 million – with Spotify and Netflix which have given them the capital to pursue their new lifestyle and public goals.
