Prince Harry flew on ‘£45m private jet’ as 50% of Brits demand they keep out of world affairs

Over half of Brits and Americans believe the Sussexes and royal family should sand thrash out their differences – and Meg and harry should keep out of world affairs.

Eco-warrior Harry boarded a 20-seat plane shortly after he was pictured on horseback at the tournament.

He took a two-hour flight on a Gulfstream jet worth £45m from Aspen, Colorado, to Santa Barbara, California, to rejoin wife Meghan and their two children at their mansion in Montecito.

Royal author Tom Quinn said: “This appears to be enormously hypocritical, given all his talk about climate change.

Meanwhile, as part of a new poll created by OnePulse for Express.co.uk respondents were asked the question, “Should Princes Harry, William and Charles meet face-to-face to try to resolve their issues?”

A huge 72.9 percent in Britain said yes, with an even more substantial 77.6 percent agreeing in America.

It comes after the Duke and Duchess were criticised heavily for their statement on Afghanistan – where they said they felt “many layers of pain”.

Responding to the question, “Do you think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should stay out of publicly commenting on world affairs?”, 53.8 percent in the UK and 52.3 percent in the US agreed.

  • INSIDE PRINCE PHILIP’S ‘HIGHLY PERSONAL’ RELATIONSHIP WITH PENNY KNATCHBULL (CONTINUED…)

    When Philip was involved in a car accident near the Queen’s Norfolk retreat, Sandringham, in January 2019, she dispatched Penny to try to encourage the duke to surrender his driver’s licence.

    Ingrid Seward, author of biography Prince Philip, A Man of His Century, said: “The Queen had cannily enlisted the help of the Countess Mount-batten of Burma, who visited Philip and helped convince him to give up driving.”

    A TV insider said: “The highly personal relationship is unlikely to be welcomed as a storyline by the Queen or the rest of the Royal Family.”

    Penny was introduced to Philip at at age 20 while dating husband-to-be Norton Knatchbull, Philip’s godson and grandson of the duke’s uncle Earl Mountbatten.

  • INSIDE PRINCE PHILIP’S ‘HIGHLY PERSONAL’ RELATIONSHIP WITH PENNY KNATCHBULL – THE ONLY NON-ROYAL INVITED TO HIS FUNERAL

    The Countess Mountbatten of Burma, 68, who was 32 years younger than the late Duke of Edinburgh before he died in April, has been a trusted member of the Royal Family’s inner circle for years and bonded with Philip through their love of carriage-driving.

    Penny was the only non-family at Philip’s small, Covid-restricted funeral, except for his personal secretary.

    Indeed, she has been so much a part of royal life, household staff have nicknamed her And Also. Whenever Philip listed guests who were to be invited to a royal do, he would end with “and also Penny”.

  • PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE NERVOUS ABOUT ‘CHALLENGING THE SYSTEM’ – NEW BOOK CLAIMS

    In an extract taken from the couple’s unauthorised biography, Finding Freedom, the Duke and Duchess were said to be “afraid of the consequences” of speaking out against the monarchy.

    It reads: “There were so many things they were unable to say [before].”

    While the biography was published last year, it was re-released this month.

    Meghan and Harry have made it clear the authors of the book do not speak for them.

  • EXPLAINED: HOW DOES HBO’S THE PRINCE PORTRAY THE ROYAL FAMILY?

    The animated series is set from the prospective of 8-year-old Prince George, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest child, and the future heir to the British throne.

    Created by Gary Janetti, the show is based off of his meme page of the young Prince and pokes fun at the royals and mocks most of the family members.

    In the show, Prince George is portrayed as a sassy and effete royal commentator.

    The show has however been highly criticised.

  • PRINCE GEORGE BEGS MEGHAN MARKLE TO ‘STOP NOW’ IN CUTTING HBO CARTOON THE PRINCE

    A new teaser clip for HBO cartoon The Prince has earthed. This time, the video sees Prince George tell Meghan to “stop now”.

    In the video, Harry says: “Hello all, sorry we’re late. Our flight was delayed – you know, JetBlue.”

    Catty George snaps back: “We don’t know. Gross.”

    Meghan tells the family: “It was Mint though,” before turning to Harry and saying: “Tell them we were in Mint.”

    Kate Middleton replies back instead, sarcastically saying: “They gave you a mint. How lovely for you. I have some gum in my purse if you’d like?”

    But Meghan tells her: “No, we were in mind. It’s like their business class. It’s really nice. They give you these cookies and…”

    Quickly George then cuts in and says: “Meghan, I’m begging you to stop now.”

  • KATE MIDDLETON TO MISS OUT ON TRADITIONAL ROYAL HONOUR ON HER 40TH BIRTHDAY

    It is yet unclear what celebrations Kate has in mind for her landmark birthday, or if she will keep it low-key like Meghan.

    While this year The Duchess of Cambridge had her birthday in the middle of lockdown on January 9, meaning she had to do something quiet, next year she will be missing out on one particular honour.

    This is that The Duchess will not hear the traditional chimes of Westminister Abbey when she celebrates her 40th birthday. This is due to changes rung in to cut costs.

    It is normal for the senior royals to hear the bells ringing at the Abbey on their birthdays, with Camilla Parker Bowles included among them.

    But the bells have not rung at the Abbey since April 2020 due to the pandemic.

  • PICTURED: HARRY BOARDS PRIVATE JET FOR 750 MILE TRIP

    ECO-WARRIOR Prince Harry flew 750 miles to a polo game on a £45m private jet – with photos revealing the luxury 20-seater aircraft.

    The Duke landed in Santa Barbara after taking his millionaire pal’s luxury private jet home — just months after lecturing the world about climate change. 

    The woke royal, 36, boarded the 20-seater £45million plane from a polo match in Aspen, Colorado, to his 18,671-square-foot mega-mansion in Santa Barbara, California, on Thursday.

    He took the two-hour flight to rejoin his wife Meghan and their two children.

  • MEGHAN & HARRY’S RELATIONS WITH THE QUEEN ‘AS STRONG AS EVER’ (CONTINUED…)

    Omid Scobie added: “Of course we saw them name their daughter after the Queen’s very nickname, so that really gives us an insight into that close relationship and you know it’s great to be able to put that right today.”

    His comments come days after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reignited their feud with the Royals as they took a savage swipe at the Queen.

    The couple are reportedly not impressed with the way the Palace dealt with their explosive allegations on Oprah.

    They believe Her Majesty did not take “full ownership” of the issues raised and “little” has been done since, according to People.

    Their preferred reporter spoke about the couple’s strong connection with Her Majesty while being interviewed by Good Morning America.

    The Sussexes’ biography co-writer was asked: “What’s the latest on that relationship with the Queen?”

    Scobie replied from London: “I’m so glad you asked that because of course we did release some details from the book, this week.

    “I spoke to sources close to the couple, who spoke about their disappointment in the institution of the monarchy, and the sort of lack of accountability taken after some of the revelations that they made in the Oprah Winfrey interview.

    “Particularly when they came to the racism claims.

    “But when it comes to that relationship with the Queen, it is as strong as ever – they have nothing but love for her.”

  • FRIENDS NO MORE? WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN MEGHAN AND HER BFF JESSICA MULRONEY?

    Meghan is thought to have first distanced herself from Jessica last year, after lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter accused the Canadian of “white privilege”.

    While Mulroney has denied being a racist, Meghan stayed silent as single mum Sasha said messages from Mulroney left her “paralysed with fear”. Meghan was reported to have “cut ties” with Jessica over the spat, although this has never been confirmed.

    The Mail’s source added: “It’s quite sad. When Jessica stood on the steps of St George’s Chapel on Meghan’s wedding day in front of millions of TV viewers, she really looked like she was on top of the world.

    “Who would have thought she would find herself in the position she’s in now?

    “Of course, all friendships change over time, but it does seem telling that the only one of Meghan’s close friends not to wish her a public happy birthday online was Jess. You have to wonder what is really going on behind closed doors?”

  • PRINCE HARRY ‘NOT FINANCIALLY CUT OFF’

    In a sweary podcast chat, Prince Harry described royal life as a mixture of The Truman Show film and being in a zoo.

    The royal also revealed he wanted to quit royal duty when he was in his twenties, saying: “I didn’t want this job.”

    The Duke opened up about his mental health struggles in a brutally frank, and profanity-laden, chat with US podcast host Dax Shepard.

    But it later emerged that Prince Harry got a “substantial” sum from the bank of dad after Megxit — despite his claims he was “cut off financially”. Charles’s annual report, released by Clarence House in June, shows he gave the Sussexes and Cambridges a share of £4.45million.

    Palace sources refused to reveal the exact amount given to Harry — which covered the first four months of their  “transition period”.  And the report said he will get no more handouts from his father.

  • PEOPLE WILL TIRE OF HEARING MEGHAN AND HARRY’s ‘SAME OLD CRACKED BROKEN RECORD’ SAYS ROYAL AUTHOR

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s “appetite” for publicity will eventually be the couple’s downfall, a royal expert has warned.

    Writing in today’s Sunday Express, Royal author Margaret Holder says she believes Harry and Meghan’s longing for headlines could backfire on them.

    She wrote: “Perpetuating their victim status may deliver global publicity welcomed by the media giants who have commercial contracts with the Sussexes.

    “However, eventually people will tire of hearing the same old cracked record and the couple will have to reinvent themselves if they are to stay bankable in a rapidly changing market with many competitors.”

    “The Queen has shown admirable patience with her troubled grandson’s repeated provocations while trying to maintain the dignity of the institution of monarchy,” she added.

    Morgan tweeted: “If this two-faced twerp tries to lecture us again about carbon footprints, ignore him.”

    As Ms Giuffre, who lives in Australia, she launched a legal battle against Prince Andrew in August 2021, she released a statement.

    she said:”I am holding Prince Andrew accountable for what he did to me.

    “The powerful and the rich are not exempt from being held responsible for their actions.

    “I hope that other victims will see that it is possible not to live in silence and fear, but one can reclaim her life by speaking out and demanding justice.

    “I did not come to this decision lightly. As a mother and a wife, my family comes first.

    “I know that this action will subject me to further attacks by Prince Andrew and his surrogates.”But I knew that if I did not pursue this action, I would be letting them and victims everywhere down.”

  • THE QUEEN’S DECISION (CONTINUED…)

    Andrew – described as the Queen’s “favourite son” – took on the honorary role from the Duke of Edinburgh in 2017.

    A senior military source said: “The Queen has let it be known to the regiment that she wants the Duke of York to remain as colonel.

    “His position is not tenable or viable. How can you have a colonel who can’t perform the role?

    “For the brief time he was in post, he was a good colonel, but the feeling across the regiment is that it’s not appropriate to retain him. You can’t have a colonel who can’t do public duties.”

    The unnamed source claimed that senior defence chiefs “all agree that he should go”.

    The monarch is reportedly keen for the Duke of York to remain as colonel of the Grenadier Guards despite sex abuse accusations being filed against him, which he’s denied.

    The decision was reported by The Sunday Times, which quoted a military source slamming it as “a very difficult, unsatisfactory situation.

    “The feeling across the regiment is that it’s not appropriate to retain him.”

    Her support comes despite there being “little prospect of him returning to public duties”, the Times adds.

    The Duke landed in Santa Barbara after taking his millionaire pal’s luxury private jet home — just months after lecturing the world about climate change. 

    He took the two-hour flight to rejoin his wife Meghan and their two children.

    The £45million Gulfstream jet is understood to belong to one of Harry’s polo pals, US businessman Marc Ganzi.

    Last night, royal author Tom Quinn said: “This appears to be enormously hypocritical, given all his talk about climate change.

    “Harry seems to see himself as someone who guides the rest of the world and that his own behaviour isn’t relevant. It is a huge blind spot.”

  • CAMILLA ‘WON’T FORGIVE MEGHAN MARKLE FOR HURTING PRINCE CHARLES’ DURING MEGXIT, INSIDER CLAIMS

    Prince Harry claimed his dad stopped taking his calls after Megxit and that he was financially cut off by the Royal Family last year.

    And now, a royal insider has told the Telegraph that not only has the couple’s decision to quit the UK for the US damaged the relationship between Harry and Prince Charles, but it has sparked a rift between Camilla and Meghan Markle too.

    “I don’t think the Duchess will ever forgive Meghan for what she’s done to the Prince of Wales,” they said.

  • MEGHAN MARKLE’S BEST PAL JESSICA MULRONEY REIGNITES RIFT RUMOURS (CONTINUED…)

    To add further fuel to the fire, Jessica posted a cryptic Instagram caption just days before Meghan’s birthday on August 4, then swiftly deleted it.

    “I’ve spoken about mental illness for years,” she wrote. “It can be lonely having the world, friends distance from you and not even ask how you are. But thankfully, you find the things that truly matter.”

    Commenting on the post, a source said: “Those final words about not even asking how you are is like a reference to that interview Meghan gave to ITV anchor Tom Bradby, when she complained that no one in the Royal Family had asked how she was or ‘if I’m OK’.”

  • MEGHAN MARKLE’S BEST PAL JESSICA MULRONEY REIGNITES RIFT RUMOURS BY NOT WISHING HER A HAPPY 40TH & DELETING CRYPTIC POST

    The move has reignited rumours about a rift between the two women, especially given Jessica, 41, regularly updates her 416,000 Instagram followers on everything from her daily workouts to what her kids are eating for dinner.

    A source close to Jessica told the Mail on Sunday: “Jess would post about the opening of an envelope, so the fact she’s the only one of Meghan’s close friends not to wish her a public happy birthday is definitely strange.

    “It is something which has certainly raised eyebrows. Yes, Jessica was always protective of her friendship with Meghan. But it was always something that was there, front and centre. You could tell how important it was to Jessica.”

  • INSIDER CLAIM MEGHAN MARKLE ‘DIDN’T LISTEN’ TO CAMILLA’S ADVICE

    Meghan and Harry’s royal exit is still making headlines as “Finding Freedom”, the unauthorised biography by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand makes more shocking claims about the row.

    It is reported that Meghan felt isolated within The Firm from very early on, and Camilla Parker Bowles tried to offer some advice to the Duchess of Sussex.

    A source said: “She doesn’t want to see anyone struggling, and she is fond of Meghan.”

    A friend of the Duchess of Sussex also said:

    “Much like Meghan, Camilla had experienced a lot of negative press and hostility from courtiers due to her relationship with Charles when he was still married to Diana.

    “She was very sensitive to Meghan and provided her with support, advising her to ride out the storm and that it would all pass—but ultimately Meghan didn’t listen.”

  • PRINCESS EUGENIE URGED TO ‘STAY RIGHT OUT OF’ MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’S ROYAL RIFT

    It’s believed that Princess Eugenie could act as a peacemaker between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royals, but royal commentator Charles Rae has warned he’s is not sure if there is anything she could do to repair the rift.

    Charles said to the Express: “Best of luck to her. I mean, that’s a hell of a mountain she’s got to climb.

    “Eugenie gets on well with other members of the Royal Family.

    “I mean what could she possibly say to the Queen and other members of the Royal Family that would smooth that path.

    “This rift is not going to go away.

    “If I were poor old Eugenie I’d stay right out of it and just not try and do anything.

    “I’m not actually sure if there’s anything she could do.”
