    The Newest Dedications to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, fondly known by fans as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are currently on their Australia and South Pacific tour. The 16-day tour is the first international tour for the newly married couple, which coincides with the Invictus Games.

    Whilst in Tonga, Harry and Meghan have dedicated two forest reserves to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy environmental initiative. The initiative, which began in 2015 has 42 of the 53 commonwealth countries in participation. The Queens’ Commonwealth Canopy is focused on uniting the commonwealth countries through a mutual want in conserving our forests for future generations.

    “Planting trees and conserving forests helps us in so many ways,” Harry said. “It is a simple but effective way to restore and repair our environment, clean the air and protect habitat.”

    The dedication took place at Tupou College, a high school founded in 1866 and believed to be the oldest school in the region. One dedication was made to the last remaining forest on Tonga’s main island, Tongatapu, and the other on the island of Eua.
