When it comes to the filthy rich and privileged, it seems like there’s a set of rules for everyone else, and a different set of rules for them. That’s what a lot of royal fans seem to be thinking to themselves lately as a new report says supposed ‘eco warrior’ Prince Harry flew home in a private jet after taking part in a charity polo match in Aspen, Colorado. Here’s what you need to know.
Prince Harry is being slammed from each and every direction for boarding a $60 million Gulfstream jet from Aspen to Montecito, Calif. after his charity polo match, even though he told Oprah Winfrey back in March, “Kids growing up in today’s world, pretty depressing, right, depending on where you live, your home country is either on fire, it’s either underwater, houses or forests are being flattened”
Yet, Harry thought none of it when he boarded to plane to go back home to his wife Meghan Markle and their two kids, Archie and Lilibet.
But to be fair, this isn’t the first time that Harry or another member of the royal family is being slammed for preaching to everyone the importance of minimizing your carbon footprint while doing very little on their own end. In fact, Prince William felt the heat earlier this year when he was blasted for being a climate change hypocrite. He wants Britons to “reset” themselves for the climate, which he and his family drive Range Rovers and frequently take private jets.
In a special video message broadcast at the Conservation International Gala in the U.S., Prince William suggests that the next decade will be one of our greatest tests if we don’t act now. He is calling for humanity to “reset our relationship with nature and our trajectory as a species” in a bid to avoid a climate disaster.
He said the most vulnerable people around the world “and those who have done the least to cause climate change” would be the worst hit.
So far Prince Harry has not responded to any of the criticism.
