Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have once again found themselves in the centre of criticism, this time being branded a 'couple of frauds' for flying back to the US in a private jet after celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
The couple, who only attended one of the public events over the four day jubilee weekend, flew back home to the US in a private jet prompting criticism from the American broadcaster Megyn Kelly.
The outspoken broadcaster has slammed the formerly royal couple, accusing them of being hypocritical, after they previously urged the public to do their part to protect the environment.
Appearing on Dan Wootton’s GB News show, Kelly did not hold back on sharing her thoughts on the couples' choice of transport.
She said: "Their environmentalism is a fraud, their perpetual victimhood is a fraud, their supposed need for privacy is a fraud and like any frauds if you spend enough time watching them they expose themselves over time.”

The broadcaster went onto tell Wootton that she has looked back at comments the couple have made in the past, pointing out that their 2019 eco-friendly tourism initiative 'could be the worst'.
Kelly then read out an extract from Markle's 2016 blog: "It’s important that we never forget the wellbeing of our good old mama earth."
She then slammed the couple saying : "What did mama earth think about your carbon footprint on your 13 passenger jet that had its own separate state room on the way home?"
Continuing to point out their hypocrisy, she added: "This is the same couple that made you and your viewers pay $50,000 for an environmental boiler when they moved into Frogmore Cottage, which the British taxpayers paid for and they made you the British people pay for their vegan paints for their cottage because they think you should pay for them to live in an environmental way...
"While they then sculk off in their private jet creating a bigger carbon footprint than the average British citizen can hope to create in ones life."
Adding to her criticism, Kelly disputed Prince Harry's claim that they 'offset it all', stating: "This is what they all say all these environmental frauds. What that basically means is I paid some company enough money to plant enough trees to cover my carbon footprint.
"Most environmental groups will tell you that the whole thing is a bunch of nonsense."
Kelly who has not held back in sharing her views said: 'They will never come to terms with why the public has turned against them in your country and in mine. People can’t stand them now because they realise they’re a couple of frauds."
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped back from their royal duties in 2021 and have found themselves at the centre of public scrutiny, particularly after the controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey.
