Prince Harry has hit back at criticism of his use of private jets, saying sometimes private flights are necessary to ensure his family’s safety.
“I spend 99 per cent of my life travelling the world by commercial flights,” the Duke of Sussex said during a speech in Amsterdam to promote Travalyst, a new travel sustainability initiative.

Travalyst will see the 34-year-old partner with major travel companies, such as Booking.com and TripAdvisor, to “explore and promote” ways to make travel more sustainable.
“Occasionally there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure that my family is safe,” he said.
“We can all do better and while no one is perfect, we all have a responsibility for our own individual impact,”
“The question is what we do to balance it out.”
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan drew criticism last month after taking a private jet to go on holiday to Ibiza, then to Nice, France, despite the flight’s carbon impact on the planet.
