Prince Harry has returned from his second summer working on a conservation project in Africa, and he was off to an important meeting as soon as he arrived back in the UK following his six-week trip. The prince immediately attended a board meeting for the Invictus Games before setting out to a second engagement, the Regimental Sergeant Majors' convention dinner, at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
The 31-year-old has been working hard on the '500 elephants' project in Malawi, where he used his skills as a helicopter pilot to aid the campaign which is helping relocate endangered elephants to a wildlife reserve to protect them from poachers. The fifth-in-line to the throne then left Malawi and was received by the President of Botswana, Ian Khama, at his palace in Gaborone, before returning to the UK.
Speaking about Prince Harry's work, Kensington Palace released a statement which read: "The elephants are being moved to reduce pressure on the habitat and alleviate human wildlife conflict while helping to repopulate the local herd in their new home.
"In the future, the reserve may also help restore elephant populations in other parts of Africa, where numbers have significantly declined due to poaching. This summer's work will further enhance his personal first-hand experience of initiatives that support some of Africa's most pressing conservation challenges."
Among his many royal duties, the Prince has also revealed that he will be embarking on a royal tour to the Caribbean in last Autumn this year, and will visit Barbados, St Lucia and Grenada among other locations on behalf of his grandmother, the Queen.
The Prince has previously visited Barbados after taking a trip there back in 2010 where he raised money for the Haiti earthquake fund.
