We know the Sussex’s have a brilliant eye for photography – they’ve shared plenty of photos on their official Instagram account to show that off.

And just this week the Duke and Duchess shared a new series of never-before-seen snaps from their trip to Botswana in 2017, just months before they got engaged.

It was a particularly special holiday for the duo with Harry later revealing the getaway was ‘crucial’ in bringing him and his future wife closer.

The new snaps were posted in celebration of World Elephant Day on Monday and we love the sweet pic of Meghan with one of the majestic animals.

In the photo, Meghan is seen tenderly tending to an elephant’s foot.

In another, the Duke, dressed down in a cap, khaki shirt and shorts, is seen walking in a rural landscape as he makes his way to an elephant in the distance.

In the accompanying caption, the Duke and Duchess revealed the organisation Elephants Without Borders, who they have been actively supporting, had some brilliant news.

A post shared by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex (@sussexroyal) on Aug 12, 2019 at 6:00am PDT

‘Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund(@TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars,’ the caption reads. 

The revolutionary collars allow for the team to study the 25 elephants closely, tracking their movements in the wild and in turn allowing them to roam freely all the while working out how best to keep future generations safe.

The Sussex’s account also revealed Elephants Without Borders have named one of their ‘most recently collared’ elephants ‘Ellen’ in honour of Ellen DeGeneres’ incredible fundraising efforts.

Such a good news story!
