Royal Couple: Instagrammers slam Meghan, Prince Harry over recent post

The Royal Couple have been under much scrutiny, ever since they created their joint Instagram account. And a post they shared on August 19. was no different. The photo was a quote by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, which encourages people to a “do little bit of good”. But the positivity was not enough to save them from heavy criticism, following accusations of their ‘overly lavish lifestyles.’

“This world is changed by your example, not by your opinion,” Instagrammers yelled

Things didn’t go as planned for the Royal Couple when they decided to implore people to do good.

And it’s all because of their recent private jet journeys despite being vocal on environmental issues. It turned out the Sussexes had traveled in four (4) private flights in a span of eleven (11) days. Many have frowned on this practice — saying it is a waste of energy resources — which opposes what they preach.

“Private jets produce an estimated seven times the carbon dioxide emissions per person as a commercial flight,” Metro UK reports.

‘Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world’

So when they run this post by their followers, the reactions were more angry than welcoming.

The post has more than 9,000 comments — and majority were filled with criticism

“People spout quotes and mantras around, and that is all well and good…but at the end of the day it’s your actions that speak louder than your words,” one person commented.

“Your many flights, cost to heat a large home (which was once five separate dwellings), and enormous disposable fashion wardrobe does more environmental damage in one year than I’m likely to do in a lifetime,” another added.

“Do as I say, not as I do. What a joke. Who would take these two seriously?”

Others accused them of misusing tax payers money, even though one of these private trips to singer Elton John’s estate was fully sponsored by him. Elton also explained that he “ensured their flight was carbon neutral”.

To this someone joked, “Elton John paid off the carbon footprint for their trip guys, don’t worry! The earth has decided to take his money and repair the ozone layer, we should be thanking them.

“Royal or influencers? Commercial or private? Private money or tax payers? Can’t have your cake and eat it!!”, another user exclaimed.

“A little bit of good and a whole load of bad… fly with the people who pay for your lifestyle!!”, one snapped.

A documentary meant to further slander the Royal Couple is soon to drop

To make matters worse, Australia media house Nine Network’s 60 Minutes has released a promo video for their upcoming docu on Meghan Markle, dubbed ‘Megxit’.

In this, they claimed the PR of the Sussexes are causing a ‘Royal Crisis’, while Meghan herself has gone from “adored to insufferable” in less than a year.

Surprisingly, many users have slammed the show even before airing — labelling it the product of a “witch-hunt”.

Meanwhile, in response to the dangers of air travel, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have launched ‘Travalyst” — a sustainable travel initiative.
