ECO-WARRIORS Meghan Markle and Prince Harry flew back to California on a private jet after their whirlwind New York tour.
The couple returned to their $14.7m Montecito home after the woke tour saw them join stars in a concert raising awareness for Covid vaccines and rub shoulders with politicians and UN leaders.
It's now expected the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are planning more tours after their royal-style trip to NY, just months after the birth of their daughter Lilibet.
But the couple are sure to raise eyebrows after they were seen arriving back to California from New York on a private jet.
In pictures released by the Mail Online, the pair could be seen hugging members of staff before heading home to kids Archie, two, and Lilibet, three months.
When spotted on the runway, Meghan opted for a loose camel sweater and black trousers with flat shoes.
The couple made the private trip despite previously facing criticism for the use of jets while simultaneously urging travellers to be eco-conscious.
Prince Harry has even launched an eco-tourism campaign Travalyst – just one of the many projects the couple have been working on since quitting the Royal Family.
The Sussexes have signed deals with Netflix and Spotify, rumoured to be worth millions of pounds each, while also launching their Archewell foundation.
And it has since been suggested the couple could have been filming their New York tour for a documentary when a wire was spotted in Prince Harry's jacket.
Page Six reported the couple had brought their own photographer for the city tour along with a videographer – with footage possibly for a documentary about the couple.
Meanwhile, during the tour Duchess was sporting unusually heavy attire for the September weather – with reports suggestingshe could have possibly been concealing a mic system.
Travelling by commercial airline is a more eco-friendly option than flying by private jet.
The reason for this is despite the amount of fuel burnt and therefore CO2 emitted is a lot lower than a commercial jet, generally speaking there will be far fewer people on board.
This isn't the first time the pair have been heavily scrutinised for flying privately, they took a private jet to the South of France two days after flying to Ibiza a few years ago.
They had hired a 12-seater Cessna aircraft that would have cost more than £20,000 to hire.
'ROYAL STYLE' TOUR
And Meghan and Harry have seemingly begun their "era of visibility" coined by journalist Omid Scobie, with their American trip.
On the first day, the couple paid a visit to the World Trade Center memorial and Freedom Tower with the New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and the state’s new governor Kathy Hochul.
Then as part of their trip, Meghan read her book The Bench to kids from a Harlem school – with Harry sat in the front row.
The prince sat cross-legged as his wife read to the group of seven-year-olds.
The mum-of-two told the crowd that it had been the first time she has read the book to a group of kids other than her own.
Meghan, 39, claims it was inspired by a poem she wrote for Harry on his first Father's Day and a "love story" of him and Archie.
Earlier Meghan was spotted embracing some of the pupils as they showed the royal couple a brightly coloured mural they had created.
The New York tour is the first time Meghan has appeared at a public event since giving birth to Lilibet in June.
And in the climax of their tour, the couple headlined a star-studded Covid vaccine gala in Central Park and were joined by Coldplay and Jennifer Lopez to name a few.
