‘The rich and the ridiculous’: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle under fire
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been blasted in the press for their ‘hypocrisy’ over climate change.
The royal couple recently took a private jet to visit Elton John in his home in France, just weeks after Prince Harry announced the pair wouldn’t have more than two children because they’re concerned about climate change.
Many have called them out on their hypocrisy, but Elton John quickly came to the couple’s defence on social media, clarifying that he paid for the flight to be carbon offset.
To support Prince Harry’s commitment to the environment, we ensured their flight was carbon neutral, by making the appropriate contribution to Carbon Footprint™.

But NSW One Nation leader Mark Latham tells Ben Fordham the royals have no place lecturing other people about climate change when they’re living such an extravagant lifestyle.
“I think these royals have become the rich and the ridiculous.
“The royal family would have a carbon footprint as big as Blacktown!
“They just make a mockery of themselves, they should stick to being a royal family instead of political agents talking rubbish.”
