Despite being an English man, the country always fascinated the Duke. He even spent a lot of time there, after his mother, Princess Diana, passed away. Their trip included a safari ride, relaxing, and a campfire with trying a lot of cocktails. While the time in the woods gave them an opportunity to know one another deeply, it made the Duke of Sussex say this to his then-girlfriend, “Trust me, I’ll keep you safe.”
While they were in their tent, an elephant surrounded them. After a few moments, their tent shook because of the roars from the lions. As the former American actress asked him if they were going to be okay, the Duke made this promise to her. He has mentioned all these details in his memoir as well. Repeating the promise throughout the page several times, he admitted, he has been keeping his word ever since.
