UK journalist Piers Morgan, co-host of Good Morning Britain, has mocked Prince Harry’s professed desire to only have two children in order to help save the planet.
“Is this the same Harry who uses helicopters to go from London to Birmingham & whose wife uses celebrity mates’ private jets to cross the Atlantic?” Morgan wrote on his Twitter page.
The journalist, in particular, referred to the then-pregnant Meghan Markle - the Duchess of Sussex and former actress – flying back home to Prince Harry on board a private jet after a baby shower in a plush New York hotel in February.
Most Twitter users supported Morgan, describing Prince Harry’s remarks as “hypocrisy at its finest.”
The hypocrisy of these people is astounding— Bravo Mc (@MartinMc1987) July 30, 2019
Hypocrisy at its FINEST— Lisa B (@Lisabcajunlady) July 30, 2019
Unconsciously a hypocrite.— Robert Corbishley (@robcorb) July 30, 2019
Most celebrities who preach us on "climate change" and "saving the planet" are hypocrites.— Ed (@iamed007) July 30, 2019
Hypocrisy is their motto— Christian (@Catholic76) July 31, 2019
Duh! That’s the reason for no more kids. They want to maintain the current lifestyle. Hollywood is loaded with private cars, jets, choppers, but don’t ask for a plastic straw or out you go! pic.twitter.com/OjxlhPmbqP— A$AP Is Bored (@FlynnReggie1) July 30, 2019
That pair is so obnoxious— jimmy29 🇺🇸 (@jimmy29_) July 30, 2019
Others, however, expressed sympathy for the Prince.
I prefer the old Harry...— Paul Reynolds (@paulreynolds75) July 31, 2019

Prince Harry has totally lost it,ever since he has married Meghan M. He repeats whatever BS she tells him. She is almost 40 ,see if it happens with the help of science like the first time.— kloria dodson (@KloriaD) July 30, 2019
I think his Mum would be so disappointed in what he’s become since he met HER 😏😏— Maddy (@Maddyozzy) July 30, 2019
She has really changed him and not in a good way. He used to be so down to earth and friendly. He seems unhappy. Really sad to see.— Ellie Weiss (@elllie_weiss) July 30, 2019
I feel sorry for Harry, he’s obviously too weak minded to handle Meghan. She’s destroyed any sense of his own personality in a matter of a year or so. He’s now just a ginger bearded version of her. It’s sad to see.— Solidarityism Esq. (@solidarityism) July 31, 2019
Earlier this month, Morgan berated Markle after her security team stopped people from photographing her at a Wimbledon event.
“This is so ridiculous, this obsession that her and Harry have about privacy,” Morgan said during a Good Morning Britain show.
