Prince Harry has defended his family’s use of private jets and says he flies them ‘to ensure his family are safe’.
The royal flew by commercial jet to Amsterdam today to make a speech marking the launch of a new environmental travel project.
The royal said in the speech that “no-one is perfect” and said people must balance out negative effects of global travel.
He and wife Meghan faced mounting criticism after reportedly taking four private jet journeys in 11 days during the summer.
He said :”I spend 99% of my life travelling the world by commercial.
“Occasionally there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure that my family are safe.”
