Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have encouraged their fans to contribute to fundraising efforts in the wake of Australia's devastating wildfires. Meghan and Harry join Queen Elizabeth, Kate Middleton, and Prince William, all of whom have shared messages of support to Australia. The eastern and southern coasts of Australia have been seriously affected by wildfires, which have forced residents to flee, some of whom have tragically lost their lives.

It's being reported that over a billion mammals, reptiles, and birds have already perished a result of the tragedy, with approximately 8,000 koalas estimated to have died.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Urges Fans to Donate to Australian Wildfire Relief

Having visited the country in 2019, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared their support for everyone affected by the wildfires in Australia. They wrote on Instagram:

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those across Australia who are continuing to face the devastating fires that have been raging for months.

From areas we are personally connected to such as the communities and people we visited in New South Wales in 2018, to the fires in California and parts of Africa, we are struck by the increasingly overlapping presence of these environmental disasters, including of course the destruction of the Amazon which continues.

This global environmental crisis has now been described as Ecocide. It’s easy to feel helpless, but there’s always a way to help.

To find out how you can lend your support, please see the links below to help as we have."

These heartbreaking photos show the moment a kangaroo begs for help in the aftermath of the devastating Australian bushfires. The marsupial suffered huge burns to its body before a teenager drenched it with water and gave it a drink. The stricken animal is one of billions caught up in Australia’s worst bushfires, which continue to burn out of control across an area more than a third of the size of England.
