Meghan Markle and Prince Harry branded ‘least eco-friendly royals’ in scathing report
Save on Energy has come up with a points-based scoring system, ranking members of the Royal Family from most to least eco-friendly.
It said it has based its rating on travel footprint, how many environmental charities they support, their attendance at environmental events, how sustainable their wardrobes are, how many of their social media posts cite environmental issues, and whether they use electric cars.
The company has named the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as joint last for how eco-friendly they are.
“Despite having been awarded points for owning an electric car and Meghan’s loyalty to sustainable fashion brands, Harry and Meghan engaged considerably less than others with environmental charities and engagements between March 2019 and 2020, which hinders their score,” it said.
“They also had the third worst carbon footprint of all royals studied,” the website added.
Next in the rating was Princess Anne, who only had one point more than Harry and Meghan.
“Even though Princess Anne supports eight different environmental charities and sporting sustainable fashion, she didn’t attend many environmental engagements and rarely posts on social media about issues like pollution or climate change,” the site said.
Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, followed in fourth place with points deducted for his travel footprint.
And in fifth place for the “least eco-friendly” was Prince William, also due to his travel footprint.
Prince Charles was given the title of the most eco-friendly, followed by Camilla and then Prince Philip.
