& # 39; Is this the same Harry who is bringing helicopters from London to Birmingham? & # 39 ;: Piers Morgan joins criticism of Prince & # 39; s planet-saving brag of wanting to have just two children in Vogue
- Harry told Vogue, published by Meghan, that they would only have two children
- He said the couple had made the decision because of the environment
- But Piers Morgan shot back that the two would make private helicopter and jet flights
- Meghan Markle's decision to edit the September Vogue has led to criticism
Piers Morgan has laughed online at Prince Harry for his statement that he and the Duchess of Sussex will have only two children for environmental reasons.
In a pointy text sent Tuesday evening at 10 p.m., the television presenter and journalist responded to the news with three & # 39; laughing until I cry & # 39; emoji & # 39; s.
He continued: & # 39; Is this the same Harry who uses helicopters to travel from London to Birmingham and whose wife uses private celebrity jets to cross the Atlantic? & # 39;
Harry made the comment in an interview in the September edition of Vogue, which was edited by his wife.
It comes after Mr Morgan has criticized the Duchess for her involvement in the fashion bible in a 1600-word article in MailOnline.
Piers Morgan laughed last night for a statement from the prince in a pointed Twitter response
Harry and Meghan praised young people for their attitude to climate change at an event in London just two days after the Duke took a helicopter from London to Birmingham
Mr Morgan, pictured above on Good Morning Britain, tweeted his views last night
He wrote: & # 39; The news that Meghan has been working on editing the September issue of Vogue for the past seven months is no surprise to me. As an actress on the B-list, she probably longed for her adult life for a Vogue star.
& # 39; News that Buckingham Palace made her do is a big surprise, though, as Meghan is now supposed to be a member of the royal family and not a publicity-craving celebrity. & # 39;
He continued: & # 39; She's already full of mouth of the udder of royal fame as a starving desert traveler arriving in an overflowing oasis. & # 39;
And he concluded: & # 39; This is my advice to Meghan: take a good look in the mirror that you have stuck to your Vogue cover and ask yourself one question: & # 39; Do I want to be a royal or virtue-signaling political activist celebrity? & # 39; . She can't be both. & # 39;
In February, the Duchess of Sussex was seen by a private jet from her baby shower in New York
And in March, the Duke of Sussex flew from London to Birmingham for two royal engagements
This spring, the royal couple risked the wrath of environmental activists when the duke made a private helicopter flight from London to Birmingham a month after the duchess's private jet flight to a baby shower in New York.
In March, Harry flew 125 miles for two official engagements in the Midlands, prior to a speech from Wembley Arena to young people about climate change.
Two days later, he and Meghan were on stage in the capital to tell 12,000 young fans & # 39; to wake up & # 39; and to act & # 39; about the damaging impact that our way of life has on the world & # 39 ;.
He spoke about how & # 39; our greatest assets are threatened every day & # 39; and added: & # 39; Every blade of grass, every ray of sunshine is crucial for our survival. & # 39;
And in February, Meghan flew with a private jet to a baby shower in New York to the anger of environmentalists.
The $ 500,000 trip to New York led to accusations of & # 39; hypocrisy & # 39; because of its campaign against poverty and the duchess's decision to fly with environmentally friendly environmentalists because the couple also campaigned on climate change.
A spokesperson for Friends of the Earth told MailOnline: & # 39; Private air travel obviously has a huge ecological footprint.
& # 39; Perhaps the duchess might consider less carbon-intensive ways of traveling for future journeys. We invite her to set a good climate trend by flying less & # 39 ;.
This month's Vogue edition was hosted by Meghan Markle in a decision that was criticized by some, including Morgan, as an unwelcome royal invasion of politics

Last year Prince Harry said on his trip to Australasia: & We will all need to stop the clock for the destruction of our planet, and time is not on our side. The standard that we pass is the standard that we accept & # 39 ;.
Yet Meghan chose to fly a private plane with her friend Amal Clooney instead of traveling every day on one of the many transatlantic commercial flights between the US and the UK.
A critic tweeted: & # 39; Meghan and Harry are billed as Humanitarians. They are patrons of charities for the disadvantaged. The obscene costs of this 5-day trip are completely hypocrisy. Not to mention the ecological footprint of taking a private jet & # 39 ;.
