Prince Harry to return to the UK for engagement focused on sustainable travel on Wednesday

By Zach Harper

Prince Harry is passionate about the environment and conservation, and will take part in a working summit to support those two key causes on his first engagement back in the UK on Feb. 26.

The Duke of Sussex will be in Edinburgh, Scotland for an event in aid of Travalyst, his new environmental tourism initiative. He will meet with more than 100 people from Scotland's tourism and travel industry to discuss how Travalyst can work there.

Travalyst is a partnership founded by Harry that includes Booking.com, Skyscanner, Tripadvisor, Trip.com and Visa. Its goal is to "serve as a cross-channel guide for scoring sustainability practices across the travel and tourism industry," according to a press release. It aims to create system for scoring holidays and trips across all platforms that will be instantly recognizable to consumers.

Harry will welcome people to the event, but won't be making any speeches, nor will he be on any panels that are part of the summit.

Harry returned to the UK this week after spending the last few months mostly in Canada, where he stayed in a house on Vancouver Island with Duchess Meghan and their son, Archie. Harry will attend several solo engagements, along with joint outings with the Duchess of Sussex.

We'll also see Harry out this week at an engagement with Jon Bon Jovi. The two will visit Abbey Road Studios to see the Invictus Games Choir record a song the rock star wrote to support the Invictus Games, which take place in The Hague this year.

Right now, the couple's final joint engagement as senior members of the Royal Family is scheduled to take place on March 9 when they attend Commonwealth Day services with other family members. They will officially step down as senior members of "The Firm" on March 31.
