A SNAP of Meghan and Harry’s Madame Tussauds waxwork was used during a studio interview about the couple’s new Eco project.

This morning’s coverage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new initiative featured the dummies – rather than an actual photo of the pair.

The photograph of the London-based attraction’s display appeared on a screen behind royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell during his interview.

It wasn’t long before viewers spotted the mistake and took to Twitter to highlight the situation.

In reaction to the backlash the royals received for taking four private jet in 11 days – emitting seven times the normal amount of carbon emissions on commercial flights.

But as the new dad today launched his new eco-tourism project in Amsterdam, he argued he always ensured his travel was carbon neutral.

SEEING DOUBLE

He flew on a commercial flight just a month after he and Meghan, 38, flew out on a jet to see Sir Elton John at his £15million pad.

Speaking today at the A’Dam Tower, he told the crowd: “Occasionally, there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure that my family are safe, it’s genuinely as simple as that.

“As I said in my speech – it is about balance. If I have to do that – and it’s not a decision I would want to take – I would ensure, as I have done previously and I will continue to make sure I do, is balance. I have always offset my CO2.”

And the prince argued he travelled “99 per cent” of the time on commercial flights.

A royal source previously admitted it “has not been lost on him” that the criticism he has faced over his own travel could overshadow the campaign – the first for the new Sussex Foundation.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew on a 12-seater Cessna plane, which would have cost more than £20,000 to hire, that generates seven times the emissions per person when compared to a commercial flight.

And earlier in August, the couple flew to Ibiza to celebrate Meghan’s 38th birthday in style with a six-day trip.

Prince Harry also headed to a super secret Google Camp event in Sicily on July 30, giving an impassioned barefoot speech about climate change to celebs believed to include Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Campbell, Stella McCartney and Harry Styles.


It comes after Meghan Markle hired a crisis management firm that once represented Harvey Weinstein in a bid to improve her image.

She has hired Sunshine Sachs — a firm whose clients included the late pop star Michael Jackson, who has been accused of paedophilia.
