Duke Of Sussex, Prince Harry Shares How Becoming A Father “Changed Everything”

Prince Harry has re-echoed the voices of many responsible first time parents. Just like Motherhood, fatherhood is a bittersweet journey as it is characterized by the good, the bad, and the ugly.The Duke of Sesssex gets candid about how fatherhood has influenced his life’s work of combating climate change.In a new video clip for WaterBear Network, the conservation-focused streaming platform that the dad-of-one recently helped launch, Harry mentions that becoming a father to his one-year-old son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, has helped him hyper-focus on the importance of tackling global warming and ensuring a healthy world for the next generation, including his son. Harry in the clip, per People says:

“The moment you become a father everything really does change because then you start to realize, well, what is the point in bringing a new person into this world when they get to your age and it’s on fire?. We can’t steal their future. We really can’t. That’s not the job we’re here for.”

The Duke continues,

“I’ve always believed that hopefully we can leave the world in a better place than when we found it.”

Harry, a longtime advocate for climate change and earth preservation, also takes the opportunity to reiterate the importance of taking action—over just talking about the issue—to ensure a livable earth for decades to come.

“For me, it’s about putting the do’s behind the say’s, and that is something that WaterBear is going to be doing: capitalizing on a community of doers,” says Harry. “There’s a lot of people that say, but this is about action.”

Harry’s partnership with the platform isn’t his only initiative surrounding global preservation, of course. The duke has also worked with the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy initiative, as well as taken part in conservation efforts in Africa, where he is the president of African Parks and a royal patron of Rhino Conservation Botswana.
