Prince Harry visibly moved on Wednesday as he came face to face with the grim reality of poaching, visiting the body of a female white rhino and her young calf, shot dead for their horns. The bodies were discovered yesterday by rangers in South Africa’s flagship Kruger National Park and are believed to have been killed five days ago before their horns were hacked off.

The 31-year-old prince knelt by the prone bulk of the mother rhino, its massive ribs exposed after days of visits by scavengers, shaking his head sadly.
