Prince William recently announced his backing of a campaign against elephant poaching, and just a few days later, the Duke of Cambridge has allegedly announced that he wants all of the ivory, up to 1,200 pieces, in the lavish Buckingham Palace destroyed. It is being reported that he has been removing all ivory pieces out of sight from his Clarence House and Highgrove homes over the past few years, turning his stance on elephant poaching into action.

Dr. Paula Kahumbu, a conservationist, believes the removal of ivory from Buckingham Palace would send a powerful message out into the world that elephant poaching and the ivory trade will not be tolerated. She said, “It would be a demonstration of them putting their money where their mouth is. It would be extremely significant and visual, and might help Britons hand in their ivory, illegal or legal.”

In a speech last week, Prince William and Prince Charles asked the world to turn its back on illegally traded animal parts at a symposium of leading conservationists held by Prince William’s United for Wildlife organization. A spokesperson for the Duke of Cambridge has refused to confirm or deny any statements made about the removal of ivory from Buckingham Palace, so it will be exciting to see if this alleged promise comes to fruition in the near future.
