Seriously, what are Harry and Meghan’s PR people thinking?
Did nobody think to say, “Hold up a second, kids! Seeing as you’re constantly banging on about the environment, it may not be wise to galavant around in one of the world’s most environmentally unfriendly cars.”
I guess preserving that little kid’s coral reef in the Caribbean takes a back seat to strutting around Beverly Hills in style!
Don’t let Meghan Markle off the hook, either
This isn’t just Prince Harry’s problem. In her thoroughly uninspiring speech for the Girl Up Summit, Meghan Markle droned on about the need for all of us to take charge of the debate on various issues, including climate change.
And they’re the ones lecturing us on the environment?
Former Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker commented to The Sun:
The only thing green about Prince Harry are his wellies. The self-appointed eco-warrior, who likes to lecture everybody else on climate change, is in the top one percent of people on the planet for carbon emissions. He should cut the carbon and, if not, at least cut the crap.
Honestly, you couldn’t make this stuff up.
If there’s one instance that sums Prince Harry and his eco-credentials up, it’s the time he told an audience of children:
Climate change is a humanitarian issue and one where we’ve been far too slow in waking up to and acting on the damaging impact our living is having on the world.
