Prince William has spoken to ITV and CNN of his lifelong love affair with Africa's natural world.
The new father's love of wildlife is reflected in his royal patronage of the UK-based African wildlife conservation charity Tusk Trust.
– Prince William
Africa, emotionally and mentally, has affected me. It's magical...This is a lifelong commitment and I'll always be involved ... no matter what.
I love the fact you can go into any village in Kenya or the east coast of Africa and just walk in and have a chat with someone and they have absolutely no idea who you are. Usually my Swahili stops after about two sentences but we muddle through in English.
I've got hundreds of animals on my iPhone, noises and sounds of the bush, so if I'm having a stressful day, I'll put a buffalo, a cricket or a newt on and it takes you back instantly to the bush.
