The Duke of Sussex is being called a hypocrite after he took a two-hour flight home to California on a private jet from Aspen, Colorado post a charity polo match. This was his first public appearance since welcoming his daughter with wife Meghan Markle. 

It was a 20-seater Gulfstream jet reportedly belonging to one of his polo friends, businessman Marc Ganzi -- on which he flew. 

Prince Harry had spoken about climate change and mental health recently at Oprah Winfrey show when he said, “I know lots of people out there are doing as best they can to try and fix these issues, but that whole sort of analogy of walking into the bathroom with a mop when the bath is over-flooding, rather than just turning the tap off.
