Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's seven flights in 14 days as they jet 19,000 miles


She spent just two hours in the capital – the first time she had been there for a year – before taking a connecting flight and arriving in Dusseldorf on September 12.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent the next few days at the Invictus Games where the smiling couple were pictured meeting several of the athletes and taking in the sporting events.

Harry was joined on stage by Meghan for the closing ceremony on September 16 before they reportedly made a 1,370-mile trip south to Alentejo in Portugal for a “romantic escape”.

It is believed Harry and Meghan stayed in Portugal until September 20, before taking a 1,300-mile flight to London before taking the long-haul flight back to California.

Two days later on September 22, they attended a star-studded event hosted by Kevin Costner near his lavish Santa Barbara estate.

Harry and Meghan have often spoken about the importance of protecting the environment, but their numerous flights spanning an eye-watering 18,000 miles will be sure to raise a few eyebrows among activists.

In July 2019, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex called for action on climate change, insisting “every choice, every footprint, every action makes a difference”.

The couple wrote in a statement posted to their official Instagram account: “There is a ticking clock to protect our planet – with climate change, the deterioration of our natural resources, endangerment of sacred wildlife, the impact of plastics and microplastics, and fossil fuel emissions, we are jeopardising this beautiful place we call home – for ourselves and for future generations.”

“Let’s save it. Let’s do our part.”

They added: “Environmental damage has been treated as a necessary by-product of economic growth.

“So deeply ingrained is this thinking that it has been considered part of the natural order that humankind’s development comes at the expense of our planet.

“Only now are we starting to notice and understand the damage that we’ve been causing. With nearly 7.7 billion people inhabiting this Earth, every choice, every footprint, every action makes a difference.”

In 2019, Harry also revealed in an interview with conservationist Dr Jane Goodall, as part of his Meghan’s edition of British Vogue, that the couple had decided to have “two kids maximum” 2019.

He explained their decision was driven by a desire to help save the planet and noted the earth was only “borrowed”.
