“I don’t know how Meghan and Harry think they look to the outside world.

“As far as I am concerned their credentials as eco-warriors and climate campaigners, they are shot now.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sparked fury after it was revealed they travelled to Ibiza in a private jet earlier this month, and also travelled to Sir Elton John’s house in Nice by private jet.

She tweeted: “It’s not safe for us to be on the same planes as royals or presidents you absolute muppets. They are prime targets for kidnap and sometimes assassination.

“It’s in the interest of us civilians to not be endangered by proximity to people in such powerful positions.”

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan hit back: “Even by your standards this is hilariously stupid.

“The royal Sussex eco-warriors flew in BA economy to Nice last year – nobody died, from memory.”
