Elton John defends Harry and Meghan's use of private jets

Tuesday, 20 Aug, 2019

"Meghan Markle cradles three-month-old Archie as she and Prince Harry land in south of France after their THIRD private jet jaunt of the summer" wrote the Daily Mail, adding that the couple's trip "made an estimated seven times more emissions per person than commercial jet".

There has been accusations of hypocrisy direction at the royal couple, who have spoken out about the need for climate action.

The royals spent more than $16 million (in USA dollars) on the plane trips, which took them to the South of France for vacation after they visited Ibiza in Spain.

Elton John has defended the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their holiday and use of a private jet, revealing he paid for the plane and donated money to offset its carbon footprint.

She told The Sun: "Given the position they have taken publicly about being responsible on climate change, this does seem an anomaly which they should look at".

According to flight logs obtained by MailOnline, the pair are believed to have flown from Farnborough Airport in Hampshire on a Gulfstream 200 and returned on a nine-seater Cessna 500 XL, owned by NetJets, which has been dubbed "Uber for billionaires". The family jetted off there to celebrate Meghan's 38th birthday at the beginning of August.

"Prince Harry's Mother, Diana Princess Of Wales was one of my dearest friends".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton may be taking a rain-check on their go to to Pakistan because of the ongoing tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad, a media report mentioned on Monday.

It's been an incredibly exciting time for Harry and Meghan, who became first-time parents in May following the arrival of Archie. "We are already living in it", the 34-year-old admitted.

Harry, 34, previously met Archbishop Tutu during a November 2015 tour of South Africa.

After photos of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex emerging from a private jet were published over the weekend, the couple have faced criticism for their choice of transport.

Since Meghan Markle announced in 2017 that she'd be stepping away from her acting career to focus on her royal and philanthropic obligations, Suits fans have been missing her character, Rachel Zane. Unlike his wife, Harry Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton is nearly ideal.
