With a fresh batch each month, the new parents have unfollowed all their previous accounts, and are now following 15 new ones.

Among them is the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF), named after the A-lister who set up the initiative in 1998.

The charity focuses on environmental issues and wildlife, which is the theme of July’s spotlight.

Announcing this month’s accounts, Prince Harry said: “Environmental damage has been treated as a necessary by-product of economic growth.

“So deeply ingrained is this thinking that it has been considered part of the natural order that humankind’s development comes at the expense of our planet.

“Only now are we starting to notice and understand the damage that we’ve been causing.

“With nearly 7.7 billion people inhabiting this Earth, every choice, every footprint, every action makes a difference.”

Among the 15 new accounts is 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, a climate activist with Asperger’s, and Dr Jane Goodall, an English anthropologist.

Plus there’s also a focus on initiatives in Africa, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are visiting later this year, including African Parks, Rhino Conservation Botswana as well as Elephants Without Borders.

Sussex Royal posted a collage of nine photos taken from the new accounts, which has been liked 120,000 times.

They captioned the post: “As a continuation of our monthly social awareness approach to shine a light on the accounts that are working towards positive change, for the month of July we turn our attention to the environment.

“There is a ticking clock to protect our planet – with climate change, the deterioration of our natural resources, endangerment of sacred wildlife, the impact of plastics and microplastics, and fossil fuel emissions, we are jeopardizing this beautiful place we call home – for ourselves and for future generations.

“Let’s save it. Let’s do our part.”

And we also revealed Kate Middleton tried to befriend Prince Harry’s ex, Chelsy Davy.
