Prince Harry is taking on the role of guest editor of National Geographic’s Instagram account on Monday, Sept. 30, as part of his tour to southern Africa.
The Duke of Sussex is calling for people to be “look up” as part of the social media campaign to help raise awareness of the “vital role trees play in the earth’s eco-system” by sharing their own pictures of trees.
Harry, with the help of National Geographic, will spend the day posting photos from “renowned National Geographic photographers, highlighting indigenous trees and our shared responsibility in preserving what we have and so desperately need to survive.”
At the end of the day, the @SussexRoyal account will share some of Prince Harry’s favourite fan-shared photos that used #lookingup.
Prince Harry has been active in the “Queens Commonwealth Canopy” campaign where Commonwealth countries have dedicated forest space to preserve in Queen Elizabeth’s name. To date, the duke has launched 15 spaces throughout the Commonwealth. Another two dedications will take place today, including a tree planting with students from Botswana.
