Royals Are "Prime Targets For Kidnap And Assassination": Jameela Jamil Who Defends Harry And Meghan Using Private Planes Faces Backlash

Meghan Markle's birthday celebrations have turned into a national controversy. She and Prince Harry, along with son Archie, took trips to both Spain and France last week aboard private jets, prompting accusations of hypocrisy from fans.
Back in June, the couple called upon the public to do their part in saving the planet, but their trip to the French Riviera is estimated to have created seven times more carbon emissions per person than a commercial flight, and there are more than 20 scheduled flights from London airports to Nice each Wednesday.
Celebrities defend the royal couple
Although the couple made 3 environmentally damaging flights in just over a week, celebrities like Elton John, Pink and Jameela Jamil were quick to defend the royal couple.
Jameela, in fact, slammed the notion Meghan and Harry should be flying commercial, which is what many have demanded of them as a tax-funded family.
And ALSO, 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.— Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) 20 серпня 2019 р.
Her sentiments were supported by Meghan’s friend Jessica Mulroney, who shared them to her Instagram. She shared a message that read:
‘When someone faces unfair criticism, you call it out.
People. however, don't share Jameela's thoughts of the situation:
The Queen flew long haul on commercial flights and so has the Prince of Wales...if the Sussexes can afford to fly private, that's fine...just don't tell the rest of us we can't do the same, especially if their lifestyle is being funded by the taxpayer. #Hypocrisy— CheChe W (@CherCheung1988) 21 серпня 2019 р.
When was a member of our royal family last killed or kidnapped whilst using public transport???— Alastair Ward (@alastairward) 21 серпня 2019 р.
Planes are probably one of the safest places you can be because of ALL THE SECURITY. YOU CANNOT EVEN BRING 150ML OF TOOTHPASTE ON A PLANE!— Aaron Gourlay (@aaroniswinning) 21 серпня 2019 р.
Well, the truth is that nothing Meghan and Harry do is ever good enough in the public eye. It must be really exhausting, especially when all you do is trying to make the world a better place.
