The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan have released a rare, never-seen-before photo of them from the early stages of their relationship.
The adorable picture was taken in Botswana, a place Prince Harry said was “crucial” in them getting to know each other. This led royal fans to speculate Botswana was the place they truly fell in love.
In the special picture, the soon-to-be parents can be seen tending to an elephant in the African nation just weeks after they first met. This photo was recently released by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan on their new Instagram handle: “sussexroyal”.
A caption on the newly-released image reads:-
“Their Royal Highnesses travelled to Botswana to assist Dr Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders in equipping a bull elephant with a satellite collar. Approximately 100 elephants are poached/killed every day for their ivory tusks. Using satellite technology allows conservationists to track their critical migratory patterns to protect them”.

“The elephant pictured was sedated for just 10 minutes before he was up and back with his herd. Tracking his movements has allowed conservationists to better protect him and other elephants. It has ensured heightened protection for these beautiful creatures moving forward”.

“We camped out with each other under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there. It was absolutely fantastic. So then we were really by ourselves. And it was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to know each other well”.
Prince Harry also returned to Botswana for a solo trip in August last year. However, he chose to leave his wife at home. The Duke of Sussex’s visit was a working trip. So he did not feel it was appropriate to take Meghan with him.
