They met at a reception held at the official residence of the British Consul General, Danny Lopez. A number of wildlife charities were represented at the reception which was co-hosted by the Duke and Duchess’s Royal Foundation and the Clinton Foundation. Clinton (who recently became a grandmother) and the Duchess (who is five months pregnant) briefly spoke about the importance of child development. The Duke gave a brief speech about the black market for animal hides and ivory saying, “It’s easy to blame others for the problem – demand in South East Asia, not enough protection on the ground, and so on. But, if I may say, we could start with looking closer to home. Our own nations still have thriving black markets in these products, and we have to raise the game at home as well as abroad.”
