Late Mark Shand Pod Cast to BBC Radio 4's

I am utterly devastated by this sudden and tragic loss of Late Mark Shand, one of my great and best buddies & brother to Duchess of Cornwall.
There are no words to describe Late Mark Shand. He was a man of extraordinary vitality, a tireless campaigner and conservationist whose incredible work through the Elephant Family and beyond remained his focus right up until his death... He was a true force for conservation. He was both a legend and an inspiration to us and above all our dear friend. Read More

Death is for pencil-pushers, bank managers and pompous golf club bores. But now he’s gone. Ripped from
our grasp. Way before his time. Read More
