Harry is currently on the eighth day of his official tour in Africa.

Buckingham Palace said that Harry & # 39; s passion for trees and forests & # 39; is inspired by the work he does on behalf of his grandmother, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. & # 39;

The "Queens Commonwealth Canopy" was launched in 2015, when Commonwealth countries were invited to submit forests and national parks or plant trees to preserve in the name of the queen.

Nearly 50 countries are participating and have already dedicated native forest to conservation, or have committed to planting millions of new trees to combat climate change.

He also warned about & # 39; huge ecosystems & # 39; fired in Africa, destroyed communities for short-term returns, and said that a & # 39; natural order & # 39; between humans and wildlife.

Writing in the Daily telegram from Malawi, Harry added: & # 39; This may sound hip to some. But we can't afford to have a & # 39; she or we & # 39; mentality.

& # 39; People and animals and their habitats must fundamentally co-exist or within the next 10 years our problems around the world will become even more unmanageable.
