Once again the former members of the British royalty are in the eye of the hurricane, this after flying aboard a private jet that departed from New York City to Southern California, where the couple lives. According to some experts, that flight emitted around 17 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
An article published by the magazine MarieClaire called them hypocrites, as they returned home in a polluting plane after participating in an event against climate change.
The couple since they separated from their royal duties have opted to support charitable causes and encourage people’s behavior to curb climate change.
Harry and Meghan against climate change?
Harry and Meghan participated in the Global Citizen Live concert that aimed to raise awareness about climate change and extreme poverty, also participated artists such as Jennifer Lopez, BTS and Elton John.
For her part, Penny Junor, a royal writer, rejected that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex behave like “superstars”.
“I think this is hypocrisy. I’m sure there were a lot of scheduled flights,” she said in remarks published by The Sun.
For Junor, these actions totally muddy its message about the climate. “They are shooting themselves in the foot when taking private flights,” he said.
