Prince Harry has recently made a surprise virtual appearance to champion his green travel initiative, Travalyst. 

During the video call, viewers noticed personal items on his bookshelf, including a childhood photo with Princess Diana, a sketch of Meghan Markle's New York City attire, and a book nodding to their California home.

Harry emphasised the importance of sustainable tourism that benefits local destinations and communities. 

He highlighted the work of organizations like Invisible Cities and Global Himalayan Expedition as examples. Sally Davey, CEO of Travalyst, praised the Duke's involvement and commitment to these causes.

Prince Harry also shared a personal story that inspired him to launch the initiative – a conversation with a young boy who highlighted the environmental impact tourism has on his country

The Duke's appearance comes as Archewell Productions announced a new Netflix series focused on professional polo, a sport Harry has long been involved in.
