Prince Harry has been branded the "eco-hypocrite in chief" for arranging separate transport for his polo kit.

The Duke of Sussex took a private jet from California to Colorado this week to play in a polo tournament, with his kit taken in a separate car to him.

Harry was playing in a charity match, raising money for Sentebale – his Africa-based charity supporting youngsters with HIV.

The Duke of Sussex drove to the jet in an electric car, before boarding the £7.6million Bombardier Challenger for the two hour trip, with his polo kit arriving in Colorado later in a Range Rover.

Prince Harry was offered a spot on the jet which was already taking people to the tournament and flew back by commercial airline, according to The Telegraph.

GB News Dan Wootton slammed Prince Harry for what he sees as hypocrisy, due to the Duke's stance on climate change.

He told GB News: "We are being preached to by someone like that eco-hypocrite in chief Prince Harry who takes an electric car to take him to a private jet, which makes absolutely no sense.

"Then in a gas guzzling big car, his polo kit, and folk like him have the cheek to tell us to stop travelling.

"Well I'm not going to listen to folk like him anymore."

Last month Harry told the UN General Assembly that climate change was “wreaking havoc on our planet, with the most vulnerable suffering most of all”.

Speaking after the polo match at a dinner, Harry said: “At Sentebale we strive to break generational cycles of trauma and stigma every day.

“By educating and empowering young people to know their status and to know they can live long, healthy lives while on medication, we aim to end HIV once and for all.

“By being here today, you are a part of our journey. So, we thank you. I thank you. And if she were here, I know my mother would thank you too.”

He continued that he will “share the spirit” of Diana, Princess of Wales, with his children as he marks the 25th anniversary of her death.

Harry said he wishes Archie and Lilibet could have met his late mother who he said “most certainly will never be forgotten”.
