The carbon footprint of “eco-warriors” Prince Harry and Meghan could be 26 times higher than the average Brit.

The ex-royals were seen on Friday in Beverly Hills in a Cadillac Escalade, said to be among the most polluting cars on the planet.

But that motor — along with heat and carbon emissions from the 24,500sq ft eight-bed LA mansion they are using — is only a fraction of their footprint, a study by former MP Norman Baker says.

They generate 215 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year from flights against the UK average of 8.3 tons for one person, it is claimed.

They racked up at least 53 international flights in the 12 months to the end of January 2020, says the Lib Dem politician.

Mr Baker insisted: “The only thing green about Prince Harry are his wellies.”

“The self-appointed eco-warrior, who likes to lecture everybody else on climate change, is in the top one per cent of people on the planet for carbon emissions.

“He should cut the carbon and, if not, at least cut the crap.”

Harry spent £6,000 on a chopper trip to Birmingham in March last year, days before telling kids about climate change at Wembley.

The Prince, 35, told them: “Climate change is a humanitarian issue and one where we’ve been far too slow in waking up to and acting on the damaging impact our living is having on the world.”
