Prince Harry has paid a touching tribute to Prince Philip vowing to continue working on protecting the environment like his late grandfather did.

The 36 year old spoke out about biodiversity and the Duke of Edinburgh's role in conserving it in a video narrated for World Earth Day entitled "Hope Starts Here".

In a statement alongside the clip, he explained: "As we now begin to move towards an era of global recovery and regeneration, it's critical that we continue to look at the strengthening and protecting of biodiversity, not just as a value we hold – but as a responsibility that is vital to our way of life."

Referencing his grandfather, he continued: "On this Earth Day, I reflect on the generations of conservation champions, including my late grandfather, and feel proud and energised to continue doing my part in this legacy.

"This year especially, I join the incredible African Parks team and communities around the world in shared dedication to our environment and collective well-being."
