Dr Jane Goodall reveals Prince Harry is finding new LA life “challenging”

Dr Jane Goodall has revealed her dear friend, Prince Harry, is finding it “a bit challenging” adjusting to his new life in Los Angeles.

The 86-year-old primatologist admitted she had “been in touch” with the royal after he and his wife, Duchess Meghan, stepped back from their positions as senior members and moved to Canada.

The couple eventually moved onto Los Angeles with their 11-month-old son Archie.

The pair have been widely reported to be big fans of Dr. Jane Goodall who has been a major activist for climate change and global warming, and she says she believes she might be the first person outside of the royal family to have held Archie.

Currently, the activist is in quarantine in Bournemouth.

“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but, yes, I’ve been in touch – though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging right now,” she said while speaking to Radio Times.

She went on to say both Harry and his big brother love to hunt, but believes since Meghan “doesn’t like hunting”, he may give it up.

Dr. Goodall recalled a conversation she and Prince Harry when they met last summer while attending an event to raise awareness for her Roots & Shoots education programme at Windsor Castle.

“I made Archie do the Queen’s wave, saying, ‘I suppose he’ll have to learn this’”, she said.

“Harry said: ‘No, he’s not growing up like that’.

The activist went on to say she is enjoying her life at home but found replying to emails was more exhausting than travelling the world.

When asked if she was becoming restless, she responded: “No, I hate travelling the way I do, but I still have a message to get out.

“With all the emails and requests I’m getting, this is actually more exhausting than travelling.”
