The royal family doesn’t usually attend star-studded film premieres, but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made an exception. The pair, who recently celebrated their son Archie’s christening, stepped onto the red carpet on Sunday for the European premiere of The Lion King in London.

“As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to the Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment and community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn”.

According to the statement, “The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet”.
