Prince William is keeping fit on lockdown at home — but he’s relieved not to be doing so in Africa's "altitude and heat."

William, 38, made a video in support of a virtual marathon that usually takes place in Lewa in Kenya. But this year supporters of his conservation charity Tusk Trust have been running, walking or riding distances from three miles o 26 miles on roads, parks and fields elsewhere.

Looking tanned in a bright white Abercrombie and Fitch polo shirt, William tells supporters, “I’m also about to do a run myself, as part of this virtual challenge.”

“Like many of you, I’m very sad not to be able to do this run in Lewa’s beautiful surroundings — but also rather relieved to have been spared the altitude and the heat."

William, who has been patron of Tusk since 2005, adds, “This is not a race, there is no stopwatch. It is our way of showing Africa’s conservation community that we’re all in this together.”
