Prince Harry Reportedly Gave a Speech to Elites at Google Camp
While Meghan Markle is making waves back at home with her guest-edited issue of British Vogue, her husband is up to some high-profile do-gooding of his own.
According to Page Six, Prince Harry is attending the ultra-exclusive conference Google Camp, alongside the likes of Naomi Campbell and Leonardo DiCaprio. The annual event gathers the world's elites at Sicily's Verdura Resort, to discuss pressing issues. Per Page Six, Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin personally invite all of the guests to attend.
Not only did the royal show up, though—he delivered a speech, barefoot, about the importance of fighting climate change.
Whereas in the past, Google Camp has focused on a wide range of topics, this year it's centering on the environment. "Everything is about global warming, that is the major topic this year," a source told Page Six.
It's fitting that Prince Harry would come to Google Camp during its climate-centric edition, as the royal has been outspoken about the issue. Just this week, Harry's interview with Dr. Jane Goodall was published in Meghan's issue of Vogue. In it, the pair discuss the urgent need to combat rising temperatures—and Harry even noted that he wouldn't have too many children, for the good of the planet.
"I’ve always had a connection and a love for nature. I view it differently now, without question," Harry said. "But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children."
"Not too many!" Goodall joked.
"Two, maximum!" Harry replied. "But I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation."
