Harry and Meghan are now living in lockdown close to Hollywood, Los Angeles. Dr Goodall said she thought Harry is finding the move to LA amid the global pandemic “a bit challenging” following his move to North America from Canada and may give up hunting because of Meghan, who is a keen animal activist.
Her comments come after Harry has skipped several Royal Family hunts, with some sources close to the couple claiming he has shunned the activity because of Meghan.
The activist believes that Harry and his brother, the Duke of Cambridge, work to protect the natural world – apart from when they hunt.
She told the Radio Times: “Yes [they champion the natural world] except they hunt and shoot. But I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting, so I suspect that is over for him.
“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but yes, I’ve been in touch, though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging just now.”
Harry has missed several huntings, including the Royal’s annual summer holiday hunt at Balmoral in Scotland in August 2018. He also missed the Royal Boxing Day shoot at Sandringham in 2017.
In another interview with Jane Goodall in September’s edition of Vogue magazine, Harry pledged not to have “too many” children of his own in light of the environmental pressures facing the planet.
The Duke, who has one baby boy, Archie, said having a son had made him think more about the environment, underlining how he “should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation”.
Dr Goodall said she was enjoying being at home due to the lockdown but that replying to emails was more tiring than travelling the world.
Asked whether she was getting restless, she said: “No, I hate travelling the way I do, but I still have a message to get out. With all the emails and requests I’m getting, this is actually more exhausting than travelling.”
The Dr’s Jane Goodall Institute houses 5,000 chimpanzees and gorillas at habitats across the world Dr Goodall’s latest documentary The Hope, on National Geographic and National Geographic Wild, examines her 60-year legacy.
The Duke and Duchess have been approached for comment.
