Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Conservation Initiative Supported by Dr. Jane Goodall And Disney
Prince Harry, a passionate supporter of wildlife conservation, was the guest of honor at a meeting for Roots and Shoots on July 23. The Duke of Sussex and Dr. Jane Goodall, the world-renowned ethologist and primatologist, greeted each other with the chimpanzee greeting.
The unusual greeting was promoted by Dr. Goodall, who asked the Duke of Sussex if he remembered the greeting she taught the ginger-haired prince when they met in December 2018.
A smiling Harry and chimpanzee expert then reenacted the greeting. As the timid female chimpanzee, Jane Goodall approached Prince Harry who encouraged her with a pat on the head and encourages her for a hug.
