- Harry acts in the environment-focused sketch
- The royal makes statement about his new project
Prince Harry wants vacationers travelling to New Zealand to consider the impact their actions have on the environment! On Monday, the royal shared a new video via the YouTube channel for his sustainable travel project Travalyst, which features him in an unusual sketch where he plays himself.
Harry gets interrogated by New Zealand actor
Harry appears in a super casual outfit in the video, wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and a cap. He acts alongside Rhys Darby, who chases him down and accuses him of having dropped a wrapper during his holiday years before. Harry appears confused, calling Darby's accusation "really weird" and saying he had "an incredible time" in New Zealand.
The video also sees the royal interact with Rena Owen, and receive a rating as a traveller based on a points system evaluating his ecological impact. He even speaks some Te Reo Maori! Harry says the phrase "Kei te pai," which translates to "I am fine." He made a statement about the significance of the project's launch in Aotearoa New Zealand, which he called "a country of sustainability pioneers."
"For our first campaign, we are encouraging people to flip the script," Harry shared. "We're always being asked for our feedback on our trips and experiences, but what would happen if our holiday rated us?" Travalyst's CEO, Sally Davey, said Harry "felt very strongly, as we all did, that Aotearoa was just an ideal setting for the pilot." However, the Daily Mail points out that Harry actually shot the video in California, where he currently lives with Meghan Markle and their two children!
