Another day, another story about the Sussexes. Once again it’s negative press. Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan and their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, 3 months took a private jet to Elton John’s French residence, for a getaway. The couple have been criticized by the media for being ‘hypocrites’. They claim to care for the environment but yet they fly in a private jet.
Ohhh the life of the rich and famous *rolls eyes*.
Elton John and Ellen DeGeneres defended the couple. In a twitter rant, Elton John clapped-back at the haters saying that he was just trying to be hospitable by inviting the Royal couple to his home for a short break.
I get that. We all feel very stressed by our daily life and we deal with it by taking a vacation. He added that the flight was carbon neutral and the press need to stop “assassinating their character”.
Prince Harry’s Mother, Diana Princess Of Wales was one of my dearest friends. I feel a profound sense of obligation to protect Harry and his family from the unnecessary press intrusion that contributed to Diana’s untimely death.— Elton John (@eltonofficial) August 19, 2019
To support Prince Harry’s commitment to the environment, we ensured their flight was carbon neutral, by making the appropriate contribution to Carbon Footprint™.— Elton John (@eltonofficial) August 19, 2019
I highly respect and applaud both Harry and Meghan’s commitment to charity and I’m calling on the press to cease these relentless and untrue assassinations on their character that are spuriously crafted on an almost daily basis.

Ellen also defended the couple on twitter, describing them as “the most down-to-earth, compassionate people.”
Portia and I met Prince Harry and Meghan in England to talk about their work on wildlife conservation. They were the most down-to-earth, compassionate people. Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you’re trying to do is make the world better. pic.twitter.com/226pRO1fj1— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) August 19, 2019
I’m honestly not sure what people expect. A Royal couple can’t fly commercial!! You really can’t please everyone. On the one hand, if they fly air peasant people would complain that they are ‘tarnishing the Royal name’. On the other hand, they are criticized for flying a private jet.
*huffs in frustration*
