Prince Harry Stars In Humorous Ad By His Sustainable Travel Organization
By Alexa Heah, 10 May 2022
Since his departure from the palace, it seems Prince Harry has been taking up acting classes, having just appeared in an advertisement for Travalyst, his nonprofit company promoting sustainable travel.
The Duke of Sussex wears a “girl dad” T-shirt in the spot and shows off a more casual side than the public is used to. He’s stopped by rating agents in New Zealand who critique how he uses a towel and possibly littered a lollipop wrapper while on vacation.
He then humorously apologizes for conflating Australia with New Zealand, and praises the beauty of the landscape while giving a go at the native Maori language.
As per Travalyst, the advertisement promotes a holiday rating tool on its site that is being piloted to encourage travelers in New Zealand to choose eco-friendly travel options while planning their next holiday.
“As travel continues to come back, we have an opportunity and a need to redefine the industry—for better, for good,” says Prince Harry.
“We created the non-profit Travalyst to rethink how travel can continue to expand our global understanding, to break down barriers, and to create cultural connections through experiences we otherwise wouldn’t have,” he continues.
“We do this while, at the same time, ensuring local communities truly benefit from tourism and safeguarding essential ecosystems.”
