Eco-conscious Royals Harry and Meghan have hit some serious turbulence for taking a private jet to Ibiza for Meghan's birthday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken baby Archie on their first trip abroad as a family.

But their means of travel has courted controversy.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly chartered a private jet for a six-day trip to the Mediterranean island of Ibiza to celebrate Meghan’s 38th birthday.

The sojourn will have been three-month-old Archie’s first trip overseas as they prepare for an official Royal visit to Africa in October.

Critics refuse to cool their jets

However, the royal couple’s decision to take a private jet flies in the face of their eco-conscious and egalitarian brand.

And not everyone’s on board with their opulence.

Meghan was criticised for splashing out around $500,000 on an extravagant baby shower in New York, and it was believed that her recent birthday celebrations would be “low-key”.

Harry is no stranger to copping similar flak.

In July, joined by dozens of A-listers flying in by private jet, including the likes of Leonardo Di Caprio, Harry spoke at Camp Google’s climate change retreat in Sicily.

There, Harry delivered an impassioned speech on humanitarianism and taking action against climate change.

But it didn’t go unnoticed that he stayed on a lavish superyacht while there.

The carbon footprint of the tech giant’s climate change event was topped up thanks to a reported 114 private jets that escorted Harry’s fellow mega-celebrities.

Secret escape

The island of Ibiza is a popular tourist and holiday destination and is one of Spain’s Balearic archipelago, which also includes Menorca and Majorca.

Synonymous with young groups heading there for days of endless partying, it also has an idyllic and peaceful side that makes the island a big drawcard for families.

Known for its thumping nightlife, Ibiza is also an idyllic getaway for families. ISTOCK

It’s understood that Meghan, Harry and Archie kept a safe distance from prying eyes.

A source told the Majorca Daily Bulletin that, “no images have emerged of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Archie, who stayed at a villa well away from the cameras.

“They traveled with security personnel, and it is reported that local security forces were not needed.”
