The first project of the newly launched Sussex Royal charitable foundation has been announced: Travalyst, which looks to improve conservation efforts at tourist destinations around the world, tackle climate change, and help local communities grow economically – all with the goal of making travel more eco-friendly.
This, of course, comes on the heels of Harry and Meghan’s private jet melee after they used that method of transportation for trips to both Ibiza, Spain and Nice, France. To that, Harry, who spoke at the launch of Travalyst in Amsterdam today, said “We can all do better and 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…I came here by commercial [flight]. I spend 99 percent of my life traveling the world by commercial. Occasionally, there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure my family are safe and it’s genuinely as simple as that.”
After arriving in Amsterdam yesterday and spending the night there, he joked “Having spent last night here – I don’t know about you guys, but it was definitely the best night’s sleep I’ve had for the last four months!” (Obviously, of course, referring to life post-Archie.)
