The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been urged to “lead by instance” on environmental troubles just after taking a private jet to the south of France.
The royal duo took an environmentally-damaging flight to Good two days just after flying to Ibiza, Spain, and Labour MP Teresa Pearce has urged them to reside up to their reputation as eco warriors by thinking of their carbon footprint.
The British politician told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “Provided the position they have taken publicly about becoming accountable on climate modify, this does look an anomaly which they should really appear at.
“It is up to all of us to reduce our carbon emissions, and the quantity of flights we take a year. That is seriously significant – and a person as higher profile as that should really lead by instance.
“I come across this really surprising for the reason that it does not match with their public image and the way they are so concerned about the planet and the atmosphere.”
Earlier this year, the Duke warned of the dangers of climate modify, urging the public to “take action” to decrease their carbon footprint.
Speaking in March, the royal – who has a 3-month-old son known as Archie with his wife – explained: “Climate modify is a humanitarian concern not a political one particular, and one particular exactly where we’ve been far also slow in waking up to the troubles and acting on the damaging effect our strategies of living are getting on the globe.
“We now have the details, the science, the technologies and the capacity to save not just our planet but ourselves. You never just sit back and wait for options, you take action and develop them.”
