It's nonsense!' Prince Charles savaged as 'green prince' caught overusing helicopters

Prince Charles has always been a vocal campaigner for environmental issues. Now,

the heir to the throne's latest actions, amid a debate regarding the Royal Family's

spending habits, have come under fire after he was previously spotted overusing

helicopters, despite being consciously aware of the environmental risks it poses.

Royal experts discussed Prince Charles and his "Green Prince " persona on the latest episode of Royal Beat.

Host Kate Thornton said: "He [Charles] took more than 20 private flights, including several helicopter rides."

Ms Thornton asked if Charles is considered a "hypocrite" because despite being "a

man that campaigns" about environmental issues, he takes action to seemingly contradict those he speaks on.

Mr Larcombe added that Charles "has a weakness" for comfort.
