Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared a rare photo from their 2017 trip to Botswana on Instagram. The image shows the soon-to-be parents putting a satellite collar on a sedated bull elephant to help keep the animal safe from poachers.
Meghan wears a tank top and cargo pants while Harry sports a green shirt and navy shorts. They both wore neutral baseball caps for some shade in the sun. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the trip to Africa to help Dr Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders. "Approximately 100 elephants are poached/killed every day for their ivory tusks," the caption to the couple's Instagram post reads. "Using satellite technology allows conservationists to track their critical migratory patterns and to protect them and the local communities from human-wildlife conflict."
"The elephant pictured was sedated for just 10 minutes before he was up and back with his herd. Tracking his movements has allowed conservationists to better protect him and other elephants and ensure heightened protection for these beautiful creatures moving forward," the statement adds.
The new photo was part of a slideshow shared to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's new Instagram account. her shots in the collection show Harry attending the premiere of Netflix's Our Planet at the London's Museum of Natural History with Prince William and Prince Charles, plus more highlights from his environmental work.
The last slide even shows the elephant Harry and Meghan attended to getting back up after receiving its collar.
Botswana shares special significance for the couple, as it was one of the first places they travelled together. "She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic," Harry revealed in their post-engagement interview. "Then we were really by ourselves, which was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to get to know each other."
Meghan's engagement ring includes a centre diamond from Botswana, besides two smaller stones from Princess Diana's collection.
