Meghan and Harry: Private Jet Climate Hypocrites

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. 

Harry & Meghan would have been the perfect opportunity for the 38-year-old to push back against the ‘Harry the hypocrite’ trope which crops up like clockwork every time they are caught by the paparazzi on the tarmac jetting about the place. 

But no, instead we are just more footage of them grinning madly at one another on a beach or a new biting claim about Fleet Street being chucked around.

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.

There are lots of issues that would benefit from Harry’s attention, “Climate Change” isn’t one of them.

On edit, that isn’t to say that “Climate Change” is worthy of anyone’s attention.

I blame the sanctimonious idiot formerly known as Prince for not instilling in the brat some perception of the real world. Mind you for a tree-hugging homeopathy twit who fuels his car with leftover wine and whey what do you expect.
Mostly we would make grappa and protein supplements from such stuff.

That proper Charlie formally known as Prince failed miserably is so many ways.
He even thinks Boaty McBoatface represents a sane observer of all things Climate Change.

Revealed: BBC arranged place on Strictly Come Dancing for Hamza Yassin to make him a household name ahead of him becoming the next David Attenborough

Strictly favourite Hamza Yassin is set to become the BBC’s next David Attenborough after the organisation got him a place on the dance show in a bid to make him into a household name.

The Daily Mail can reveal executives at the Beeb arranged this after learning how popular he was with children on his CBeebies rambling show, Let’s Go For A Walk.

On balance, having them as ‘climate’ advocates probably harms that cause more than helps it.

As with that Swedish child lecturing world politicians about the subject, many people realise it is ridiculous. Who would want such people speaking on your behalf? I suspect many of the Tic Toc generation still know an idiot when they see one even if they’ve been made a celebrity idiot.

The only other Royal who pointedly mentioned climate change was Prince Charles as he then was. To slag them off for talking like the majority of the population do these days, is also rather harsh

An adult man (pleb or aristo) without gainful employment is waste of space and unnecessary generator of damaging ‘carbon footprint’, if there is such thing.
Harry should have been retained in military as an officer, only thing he was even remotely ever good at.

Looking for more hypocrisy? Remember that time Harry was reported taking someone else’s private jet cross country to play some polo? No one mentioned how he got his ponies to the event. I’m guessing that like most serious polo players he doesn’t borrow someone else’s horses to ride. He has his own and they are transported wherever he needs them.

I think the reason there are so many global warming hypocrites is surprisingly simple.

Deep down the royals, the Hollywood dimwits, the poorly educated liberal advocate journalists, the politicians obviously don’t actually care about global warming. Does anyone here actually believe that Charles III or that Prince Harry seriously ever studied the issue (or even read even a single scientific article or serious book on the topic)? They are no more qualified to be taken seriously on global warming than is the “how dare you” wunderkind Greta. They don’t really care about the issue and they probably don’t really understand the issue. Because they don’t really care about the issue they aren’t about to crimp their life style over it.

It is style. They want to be part of the high school “in-group.” They are virtue signaling. The cause is irrelevant.

As soon as it is no longer stylish to talk about global warming they will switch to something else.

It can only be hoped that the next great virtuous crusade is something harmless.

Ginge the Whinge possibly falls into that category, but I don’t believe that Charles does. He has a long track record of environmentalism.

Harry was born into the royal family. His mother was once among the most celebrated and admired women in the world. Harry is the living definition of a child of wealth and privilege. But Megan is the entitled one.

Self-centered is not the same as self-aware. I expect no less than complete hypocrisy from the likes of these two.

The surviving European royalty is a meaningless affectation of long-gone power and prestige. They are no longer relevant and there is no valid reason for paying them any attention. Harry and Meghan are less important than similarly wealthy drones, including Princess Di. It’s odd that people develop a fixation on these types. It’s probably because the media are in a never-ending search for cheap material.

C’mon guys, Harry and Meghan are special people….they don’t have to provide carbon offsets for their jet travels…that would cost too much….there are lots of suckers out there who believe these two are saving the planet.

These two have thrown their little temper tantrum, and now most people just want them to go away. Their Netflex ratings are not good despite the hype of ‘revelations’. He is no longer royalty and has no political influence. She brings nothing to the table. Neither of them do anything notable, nor do they have any talents or skills.

They have nothing to offer, so any further attempts for headlines will generate no interest. There is no reason for any additional reportage on them. I suspect once Meghan realizes that she will move rapidly to make a divorce happen. Then she can stay in the limelight a little longer dishing out stories about how cruel/stupid/lazy/racist. or whatever, Harry was.

As a Sussex man and member of the Kipling Society, I’m a bit depressed by the title. As a Royalist {Ted Heath as President, eh?) I’m depressed by the decline in majesty. The Sussexes face a gloomy future I’m glad to say when the caravanserai moves on.

The instinct that maybe it would have been better to not write about them and keep them in the spotlight was a good one.

However the mistake of mentioning them is greatly mitigated by the most excellent phrase: “… über woke pustulence on the global psyche which refuses to go away”

I read this and Mark Twains “The Prince and the Pauper” comes to mind. If only the royals and our leaders could spend sufficient time to see how the other half lives. If not that, how about Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol”. By the way, if you own an Apple device, both are available as free downloads.
