Speaking to PEOPLE, he continued: “There’s only so much one can do from home and over Zoom, so we look forward to traveling more because the work matters. Whether it’s the Archewell Foundation, Invictus or any of our other causes, there will always be reasons to meet the people at the heart of our work.”

However, he has risked the wrath of the public once again after previously being criticised for for comments regarding air miles. In December 2022, the Prince raised eyebrows after urging travellers to fly less.

Harry previously founded Travalyst, a project aimed at improving conservation and environmental protection, and the company shared a newsletter which told people take fewer trips, opt for economy class and pack light in a bid to be more sustainable.
