PRINCE Harry is using an ultra-exclusive VIP airport service which whisked him away in a gas-guzzling Chevrolet during his trip from London to LA last month, according to a report.
The Duke of Sussex – a passionate advocate for environmental causes – has reportedly been making use of The Private Suite, which is described as “the most VIP way through the airport”.
Members sign up for £3,250 a year and fork up another £2,500 per trip – but can exit the plane on their own private stairs before other passengers.
They are then picked up in a private SUV and taken to a private terminal where they can collect their luggage and move through passport control all in isolation, the Mail on Sunday reports.
On the Private Suite’s website, the company describes itself as a “private airport experience”, writing: “PS reimagines the airport experience for the seasoned and discerning traveller.”
The firm is run by Gavin de Becker – who is believed to be running Harry and Meghan’s security at their pad in Montecito.
The Duke needs heightened security due to his celebrity status – and has taken British Airways flights in the past.
Harry’s alleged use of the SUV comes despite him speaking out against the dangers of climate change in the past.
Earlier this year, the Duke warned the issue must be tackled “at the source” and said it was “pretty depressing” that the US was “either on fire or underwater”.
He told the 'The Me You Can't See: A Path Forward' podcast that the world needed a “reckoning moment” after the pandemic, stressing that he believed climate change was one of the most two pressing issues in the world alongside mental health.
In 2019, he told a group of youngsters at the SSE Arena in Wembley to “wake up” and act “on the damaging impact our ways of living are having on the world”.
But it was reported that the Duke hired a private helicopter just two days before the event, with charity Friends of the Earth urging him to “consider less carbon-intensive modes of travel”.
Meg and Harry also sparked claims of hypocrisy in 2019 when seen boarding a £20,000 private jet to stay in Elton John’s French villa that same year.
Meanwhile, a source told the Mail on Sunday that the Duke had been spending with the “LA rich set” while in California, including the “owners of big companies, jet-set types with private planes.”
The source added: “He spends time in Malibu, Montecito and Beverly Hills.
“Harry seems really relaxed being the star in the room. He's usually the only famous person at the parties he goes to, and it seems to suit him that he's the one everyone flocks to.”
