A GB News guest has slammed Prince Harry for his involvement in a newly-released green project.

The Duke of Sussex played a starring role in the travel campaign sketch in which he jogs through a forest before being accused of dropping a lolly wrapper four years earlier on a trip to New Zealand.

The video, which features actors Rhys Darby, Dave Fane and Rena Owen, launches a new initiative in New Zealand for Harry’s Travalyst organisation, in which holidaymakers, rather than holidays, are rated for how sustainable they are.

But, speaking on GB News' Dan Wootton Tonight, broadcaster Bev Turner hit out at the Duke's involvement in the campaign, describing it as “bizarre”.

She said: “I watched that five-minute video today just aghast, it’s like he’s teeing up the Chinese social credit system.

“It’s like Tripadvisor when you’re giving the place you’re visiting a rating.

“This is the people at the venue giving you a rating on your behaviour and on your green credentials and how you behave in that country.

“I don’t want any part of a system like that, I don’t want to be judged by an app, I’m not very keen on an Uber driving giving me stars.

“I think it’s bizarre and you see right through what he’s doing.”

In the ad, Harry, who is dressed in a grey t-shirt bearing the words GIRL DAD, jogging bottoms and a cap and wearing wireless earbuds, is ambushed by a “rating agent” who claims the Duke left the rubbish behind during his official tour with the Duchess of Sussex in 2018.

Harry is at first given three stars out of five, and then three and a half – as stamps on his arm – for only using one towel and for buying local honey.

He is also praised for not leaving the tap running while brushing his teeth.

Harry says: “I never do.. Hang on a second. How do you know that?… That’s really weird."

The Duke insists the wrapper is not his, with comedian Darby saying: “It might have been a confusing time, it was windy.”

Harry responds: “I don’t think it was confusing. It was an incredible time.

"We had an amazing time in New Zealand. It’s beautiful.”

Fane, who plays another rating agent, arrives claiming he is meant to be assessing the Duke, saying: “I’m supposed to be rating Harry.

"You’ve got Harry Styley and I’ve got the stylish Harry.”
