Essay by Eric Worrall
Meghan and Harry’s Netflix self indulgent Netflix series about their alleged victimhood has mercifully concluded. But a lot of criticisms of their behaviour remain unanswered.
Take the events of summer 2019. In July, Harry put out a statement via on the Sussex Royal Instagram, saying “With nearly 7.7 billion people inhabiting this Earth, every choice, every footprint, every action makes a difference.”
Later that month, Harry flew to Google Camp via private jet and helicopter, according to the Daily Mail, where he, per Page Six, gave a speech about climate change. Then in August, in the span of 11 days, he and Meghan took four more private jet flights, first to Ibiza and then to the South of France for holidays.
Oh the exquisite irony when, in early September Harry pitched up in Amsterdam to launch a sustainable travel initiative called Travelyst.
That disconnect between his words and deeds has continued. One example: Harry and Meghan reportedly eschewed commercial flights when they headed to London for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June this year, only for him to address the UN General Assembly the warned about the “havoc” of climate change.

Ex Prince Harry made an effort in 2019 to explain why he is such a climate hypocrite – the private jets are needed for personal “security”. He didn’t explain why other users of private jets or passengers on ordinary commercial jets are not entitled to also prioritise their own personal security.
I was in two minds about whether to write this piece, when I think about Harry and Meghan, I see them as an über woke pustulence on the global psyche which refuses to go away. Maybe by writing about them I’m helping to keep their awful whining presence in the public gaze.
The only silver lining is their pantomime accusations of racism and bullying are such a distraction, the rest of the private jetset royals are giving us a break from their usual tiresome woke speeches about the alleged climate crisis.
