They certainly seem to be struggling with the "traveling under the radar" thing recently

They've been seen ONCE traveling (in the past months). IF they have done other travel no one has seen it. That seems to imply they do rather well moving about unnoticed..much as they did while dating and after Meghan moved to the U.K.

And as far as I know only one return flight was a private flight. All the others were commercial. I still think people are making a big fuss over nothing.

Yes of course. I think it doesn't matter what they do, ppl who don't like them/her are going to grasp at anything to view things in a negative way.

ETA: I think the trip to France was private both ways, paid for by Elton John.

Indeed. The entire royal family seem to be struggling with not being seen travelling.

People could care less on how the royal family travel. They’ve been flying by commercials planes and private jets for decades. Its never been a major big deal and all of us royal watchers know this. Once in a while you would see a morsel of noise about the royals luxury lifestyle, but never on this kind of level. It’s only happening now because of certain people’s attitudes about Meghan.

It's happening now because they keep banging on about climate change and telling the rest of us what me must do in our lives to help counter it whilst usung 4 private jets in 11 days to go on holiday.

Other senior members of BRF have spoken about climate change & also travel in public & private on private jets, yet are not receiving ad nauseam negative coverage about it.

Again, as far as I know the flights to Ibiza havenít been confirmed yet. So that makes two flights out of god knows how many commercial flights. Hardly preaching is it.

Besides people do need to be a bit more careful with what they do. That doesnít mean nothing is allowed. And saying people need to be more careful isnít the same as telling people what to do. Thatís just reading into things.

Again, the royals are major stompers on climate change and take private jets to and from their private destinations all the time. The major complaint is only happening now because the ‘in’ thing is now to try to find absolutely anything to slam this royal couple on.

I do agree with this comment - irrespective of what anyone thinks about Harry or Meghan personally, they do live an immensely priviledged life at the expense of the public purse - they have recently been provided with a fantastic home at Frogmore, and like to travel to beautiful destinations for their summer holidays. These are things that most British people can only dream of, and at at time when most British people are worried about whether they can have their chemotherapy or when they can have their hip replacement, and when there are concerns about supplies of drugs such as insulin in the near future, they must not be seen to abuse this privileged position. To speak so earnestly about the issue of climate change, and then to take a private jet (whoever paid for or offset it), could easily be seen as abusing this privilege. This holds for all members of the Royal Family, but since H+M are the some of the most talked about in the media, the recent stories in the press should not be a surprise to them, rather almost expected.

I agree with this. Carbon footprint or not, it seems somewhat of a contradictory move; and this is coming from someone who generally supports the Sussexes in what they do.

Has the Ibiza trip been proven yet? Just asking.

Not really. It’s two flights out of a few hundred. It’s making a mountain out of a molehill.

Please note that speculative comments regarding the state of the Sussex marriage, Megan "dumping" Harry, the Sussexes leaving the royal family, etc, have been deleted.

Let's try to stick with what we know.

Could it be something they do every now and then and are usually left alone to enjoy their meal? Not everything they do has an ulterior motive to it.

I completely agree. But coming just after all the negative press around private planes and big spending on home repairs and designer clothing, one cannot help but think that this might be part of a PR campaign. This is especially so as H&M appear not to have been sighted often at country pubs or restaurants previously.
