Last week Prince Harry and Megan Merkel launched an official return to routine, when they arrived for a three.day visit to New York and officially returned to work. The Dukes of Sussex met the Governor of New York and the Mayor and attended the Global Citizen Live conference held in the city, but what happened a moment later managed to upset quite a few people.
The conference set itself the goal of “fighting poverty, protecting the planet and striving for equality,” and was attended by some of the most influential and wealthy people in the world. The conference discussed the burning issues of global warming and the climate change that threatens the globe and Harry and Megan expressed their views on the matter seriously, but a moment after the inaugural event the two packed up along with dozens of their crew members, boarding a * private jet *. Who took them back to their home in California.
Harry and Meghan are at it again. They take a private jet back from a climate change event. Oh to be blissfully rich and blissfully virtuous. You really can have it all.

Private jets have been found to pollute 10 times more than commercial flights and 50 times more pollutants than train travel, not to mention the costs of tens of thousands of dollars for a single flight. That did not stop Harry and Megan from spending the amount needed for the comfortable and polluting flight – a moment after attending a conference whose whole purpose was, we recall, * “to fight poverty, protect the planet and strive for equality” *.
“Harry and Megan did it again. They took a private jet from a climate change event,” tweeted one surfer. “Oh, to be rich and moral. You really can be both.” Surfer Anger: “How do they bring unity if they call people who do not want selfish medical intervention, and part of their family acts like they are above the law? They lecture us on carbon footprint and take private flights to polo games. Hypocrisy does not unite people.”
How do they bring unity when they call people selfish for declining a medical intervention and one of their family acts like he is above the law? They lecture us on our carbon footprint while taking private jets to polo matches. Hypocrites don’t unite people.
