Meghan and Harry 'fly on second private jet in a week'

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have sparked criticism by taking another trip on a private jet.

The pair have encouraged others to think about their carbon footprint, but could reduce their own by choosing to fly first class on a public aeroplane.

They took the jet to Nice in the south of France, just two days after flying home from Ibiza where they celebrated Meghan’s birthday, according to the Sun.

The paper said the couple boarded a 12-seater Cessna jet to the French Riviera, which could cost more than £20,000 to hire.

Photos showed the couple getting off the aircraft, Meghan, 38, holding wearing a white outfit and holding Archie and Harry, 34, in a green polo shirt, blue cap and shades.

The pair flew to France on Wednesday morning from private Farnborough Airport.

Weeks earlier, Harry took a private jet to Sicily where he spoke at a Google Camp summit on climate.

The couple have spoken out about how they plan to have only two children, citing environmental concerns.

In an Instagram post in July, Harry wrote: ‘With nearly 7.7 billion people inhabiting this Earth, every choice, every footprint, every action makes a difference.’

Ingrid Seward, Editor in Chief of Majesty Magazine, told the paper: ‘Either they can continue lecturing the world about fighting climate change – or they can carry on using gas-guzzling ­private jets.

‘Harry and Meghan need to think of the damage their behaviour is doing not only to the ozone layer but to themselves.’
