Prince Harry accused of ‘booking out whole first-class train carriage’ after environmental conference

PRINCE HARRY has been accused of booking out an entire first-class carriage to transport him back from an eco-conference in Edinburgh.

According to a report from Mail Online, the Duke of Sussex and bodyguards had an entire carriage to themselves during their journey back to London

The report claims that other passengers were prohibited from using the carriage on the LNER service into King’s Cross Station on Wednesday night.

By contrast, both Prince Charles and Prince William are known to take their seats among other paying customers when travelling by train.

Only the Queen travels by first-class and will request that she has a small first class carriage to herself.

The claims follow on from the Prince’s appearance at the eco-conference, where he asked attendees simply to refer to him as “Harry”.

Harry used his appearance at the conference to launch the new Travalyst scoring system which has been designed to advise holidaymakers on how bad for the environment their flights abroad are.

The Duke of Sussex founded the Travalyst coalition with Tripadvisor, Booking.com, Skyscanner, Visa and Trip.comand.

Harry said: "We want to hear truths and perspectives from across the industry. We don't need to reinvent the wheel; a lot of great work has already been done.

"But our research again shows that many of these endeavours have failed to reach the conscientiousness of consumers.

"We have to work together... to scale up the good practices already being used around the world. Scotland is a great example of what we mean.

"There is a holistic ambition to Scotland's intent that can be adopted across the UK and even around the world."
