Prince Harry is showing off his skills behind the camera!

In honor of Earth Day, pics taken by the Duke of Sussex during his travels to Africa, Norway, South America and more were posted to the Sussex Royal Instagram page, along with information about how humans are impacting nature. The photos begin with a shot of Harry and his pregnant wife, Meghan Markle, walking hand in hand among Redwood trees in Rotorua, New Zealand.

The first Harry-taken shot is a black-and-white image of a rhino, leaning its head on a branch with cloudy skies behind. The caption reveals that the rhino has "survived ice ages and giant crocodiles... yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us." The account also shared an up-close shot of a desert lion's eye, a pic of whales with a snowy mountain backdrop and a photo of an elephant in Malawi.

In addition to shots of animals, the account shared pics of Botswana's Okavango Delta, Guyana forests and plastics littering rocks by the ocean, which, the account explains, end "up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet, but medical problems for ourselves too."

"Today is #earthday - an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home," the caption read alongside the shots. "... Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but everyday #earthday"

The post comes amid rumors that Harry and Meghan are planning a move to Africa after they welcome Baby Sussex.

Buckingham Palace released a statement on Monday to address the rumors, noting that "any future plans" for Meghan and Harry are "speculative at this stage," and "no decision has been taken about future roles." However, the Palace did not completely deny the report.

The couple's potential plans to relocate for two to six months are in the "beginning stages," a source tells ET, adding that the new "assignment" would be a way to use their popularity in a commonwealth country.  

"While details would naturally be formalized over time, with Harry and Meghan's role as President and Vice President, respectively, of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, any relocation for an extended period of time would be an opportunity for them to work in their already established humanitarian roles," the source says, adding that any extended overseas posting wouldn't happen before 2020. "The idea is it's really a step beyond the traditional royal visit; an opportunity to have some roots and time in a place, so that [they] can focus more in depth and interact in the community as [U.K.] Ambassadors."
