Prince Harry Reenacts a ‘Chimp Greeting’ with Dr. Jane Goodall

Prince Harry is just snooping around!

The Royal went to Dr. Tuesday. Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Global Leadership Meeting. The meeting allowed Prince Harry to stay close to his Frogmore Cottage home with Meghan Markle and son Archie, born on May 6, while it was taking place at St. George’s House, also on Windsor Castle grounds.

Harry, 34, met Dr. Goodall, the renowned conservationist famous for her study of social interactions of wild chimpanzees, before learning about the Roots & Shoots program.

Dr. Goodall asked Prince Harry if he remembered the “chimpanzee greeting” when they met earlier. The royal gentleman then made his best impression and approached her as if he were a male chimpanzee and she was a nervous female chimpanzee. He then patted her head and encouraged her to hug him in a hug!

The duo also danced a bit spontaneously!

“The two share a spontaneous dance and” Chimpanzee Greeting “that Jane The Duke learned when they first met. Today’s event was full of education, inspiration and fun. Because hard work and hard play do not exclude each other … 🐒 ”a video of the sweet moments was added to the @SussexRoyal Instagram page.

During the meeting, Harry addressed the attendees and heard presentations from representatives from Asia, Africa, Europe and America. The Duke of Sussex then met young people in the program and learned about the problems that affected them before posing for a group photo.

Harry and Dr. Goodall have met several times over the years, and during the meeting he praised the primatologist and anthropologist for both her work and compassion.

“She is a woman of kindness, warmth, immense knowledge and a gentleness that humanity needs just as much as chimpanzee,” he said. “I have admired her work since I was a child, and it was so wonderful to discover that she was even more amazing in person.”

As president of The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, Prince Harry has met young people from all over the world to learn about the daily issues they face. He is also committed to promoting conservation efforts around the world – something that is also close to the hearts of Father Prince Charles and Brother Prince William.

In addition to his work with the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative,
Prince Harry has also focused on his conservation work in Africa, where he is president of African Parks and patron of the Rhino Conservation Botswana.

Roots & Shoots is a worldwide program that enables young people through practical projects chosen by the participants. The program works to create and inspire the belief that every individual can take action to make the world a better place for people, animals and the environment.

Founded by Dr. Goodall in 1991 with only 12 Tanzanian high school students from nine schools, Roots & Shoots now involves students in more than 50 countries with members ranging from kindergarten to university. These individual efforts by the hundreds of thousands of young people around the world make collective monumental changes. Dr. Goodall has convened a select group of Roots & Shoots students from around the world, annually in Windsor for the past six years, to share their projects, discuss local and global issues and jointly encourage each other in their work and activism.
