A remarkable comeback! Saturday September 3, 2022, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle traveled to the United Kingdom to support certain charities. According to the British magazine Hello, the couple would have opted for a commercial flight rather than a private jet trip. Monday, September 5, 2022, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expected One Young World Summit, in Manchester. As reported by the Dailymail, they took a very unusual step to make amends. Indeed, the couple was photographed at the entrance to Euston station, and took the train to get there. They drove 43 kilometers in a hybrid electric Range Rover before arriving at the station. Accompanied by two bodyguards, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly took the 12:20 p.m. train to Manchesterwhich arrived seven minutes late at 2:34 p.m.
At the opening of the One Young World Summit, an event that brings together young leaders from more than 190 countries, Meghan Markle gave a speech on gender equality.

You are the ones who are bringing the positive change that we need in the world, now. , and in this present moment.” Finally, she added about the country where her husband was born: “I am very happy to be back in the UK.“For the occasion, the Duchess of Sussex wore a red jumpsuit and matching stilettos.

Harry and Meghan, really green?
If the means of transport of the couple was greeted, it is in particular, because it was not always irreproachable. While he advocates ecology, the prince harry traveled Thursday, August 25, 2022 to a charity polo match in Colorado on a private jet. Having forgotten his equipment, he would then have asked for it to be brought back to him and the private jet thus remained in operation for an additional 30 minutes. Thus, his trip lasting an hour and a half, would have emitted more than 6 tons of CO2. After the jubilee of Elizabeth II, the son of prince Charles had already borrowed a private jet to return to California. Wishing to defend himself, he then assured that 99% of his air travel was done via commercial flights. In September 2021, the couple had previously been singled out after taking a private jet back to Californiaafter a three-day trip to New York.
Teresa Pearce, a member of the Labor Party, had asked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to “give the example.“During a conference, the brother of Prince William had then indicated:”It’s up to all of us to reduce our CO2 emissions and the number of flights we take in a year (…) Although no one is perfect, we are all responsible for our individual impact. The question is how we can compensate for it.“Annoyed, the author specializing in the British royal family, Tom Quinn, had dropped: “This seems extremely hypocritical, given all his talk about climate change. Harry seems to think of himself as someone who guides the rest of the world and that his own behavior is irrelevant. This is a huge disrespect!“
Prince Harry, still cold with his brother and his father
If the Duke of Sussex is currently in the UK, he is unlikely to see Prince William and Prince Charles. Before going to Manchester, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent the night less than a mile from the prince william and Kate Middleton. Today, the Duke of Cambridge would “not the intention” to see his brother. Indeed, he does not wish to speak to him before the publication of his memoirs this winter. And for good reason, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge know that the couple plans to disclose a lot of things in their documentary on Netflix and in this book. Sunroyal biographer Angela Levin pointed out: “They have lost their chance to be trusted because they will record any conversation and use it against them.“She then added that Prince William’s reluctance to interact with the Sussexes was theirs”own fault for grossly exaggerating and being impolite.“
In addition to not having visited Prince William and Kate Middleton, the couple also declined a “open invitation“to stay with Prince Charles at his Scottish holiday home on the Balmoral estate. In the past, however, Elizabeth II’s eldest son had assured them that they would be “always welcomehome during their trips to the UK, as confirmed by palace sources. Insiders told the Mirror that Prince Charles had thought welcoming the couple to his home would have been a “good opportunity for everyone to take stock and relax.” A source added: “But the invitation was declined, as it had been before“, before clarifying that Prince Charles had always tried to have a relationship with his son and to ease tensions. Hurt, it would be “completely baffledby the behavior of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
