Prince Harry covers the February issue of Town & Country magazine photographed by Alexei Hay.
And isn’t that all that you really want or need right now? The answer is yes.
Also, once you’re done taking it all in, there’s further context and info to be had:
“This past summer, Town & Country Executive Travel Editor Klara Glowczewska traveled to Africa and spent six days on the ground with Prince Harry observing, interviewing and documenting his work with African Parks for their 500 Elephants relocation project. The Prince worked alongside volunteers, vets and experts in Malawi on the frontline of one of the largest and most significant elephant translocations in conservation history. The experience is documented in the February issue of the magazine, on newsstands nationwide today.”
On his relationship with Africa: “I first came in 1997, straight after my mum died. My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags—we were going to Africa to get away from it all. My brother and I were brought up outdoors. We appreciate nature and everything about it. But it became more… This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world. I wish I could spend more time in Africa. I have this intense sense of complete relaxation and normality here. To not get recognized, to lose myself in the bush with what I would call the most down-to-earth people on the planet, people [dedicated to conservation] with no ulterior motives, no agendas, who would sacrifice everything for the betterment of nature… I talk to them about their jobs, about what they do. And I learn so much.”
On the importance of protecting the wilderness and conservation parks: “These are very special places, but they are islands with a sea of people around them. I do worry. I think everyone should worry. We need to look after them, because otherwise our children will not have a chance to see what we have seen. This is God’s test: If we can’t save some animals in a wilderness area, what else can’t we do?”
Smart, kind and hot. He’s carving out a lovely role for himself as The People’s Prince.
