The 34-year-old is in Amsterdam to promote Travalyst, a new initiative aimed at promoting sustainable travel.

The trip comes as the prince faces fresh questions about his own travelling habits and use of private planes.

In August, he faced criticism after it emerged he had taken four private jets in 11 days.

One of the trips was to a holiday home of friend Sir Elton John in the south of France.

Sir Elton later launched a passionate defence of Harry and Meghan, saying he had paid for the jet to give the couple privacy and insisting they had made sure the flight was carbon neutral.


Responding to a question after a speech at the A’Dam Tower on Tuesday, the Prince said he flew commercial “99 per cent of the time”.

“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,” he said.

“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.”

He added: “We could all do better.

“While no one is perfect, we all have a responsibility for our own individual impact.

“The question is what we do to balance it out.”

The Duke was snapped the following day taking a canal tour with local operator Rederij Lampedusa.

He was seen smiling as he shook hands with staff and conversing with other members of the party.

The operator’s website states that the particular boat he was riding on, named Alhadj Djumaa, was seized by Italian authorities in July 2013 and later given to them.

Alhadj means a wise old man who has been on a pilgrimage, while Djumaa means Friday.

Harry was also seen wearing sunglasses as he walked the streets of Amsterdam, surrounded by members of the public who seemed unaware who he was.
