Duke of Sussex starts last round of his royal duties on informal note, making it clear the audience listening to his speech on sustainable travel should simply call him Harry.
Prince Harry visited Scotland to promote his Travalyst travel initiative.
Prince Harry's Travalyst initiative is an effort he plans to continue to work on in his new role as a non-working member of the royal family. "Travalyst is very much part of Harry’s next chapter and an extremely important initiative that will have major positive impact on the tourism industry and communities around the world," said Scobie."What’s great about this is that it’s Harry not telling people not to travel, he just wants to create industry-wide transparency that allows the consumer to be informed enough to make their own eco-conscious decisions as they explore the world." The name Travalyst, comes from the words travel and catalyst, according to a post shared on Harry and Meghan's Instagram account .

"I want to help create a platform where all of us concerned about these issues can work together, where competitors can unite and incentivize a positive systemic change," Harry said Tuesday."There's a reason why this hasn't been tried before, but with our partners we have the best shot." Harry and Meghan were photographed using a private jet last summer and quickly faced backlash given their previous statements on environmental protection and climate change awareness.

"To support Prince Harry's commitment to the environment, we ensured their flight was carbon neutral, by making the appropriate contribution to Carbon Footprint." the musician wrote on Twitter. Harry responded to the criticism himself when he announced the launch of Travalyst at an event in Amsterdam in September. "I spend 99% of my life traveling the world by commercial [aircraft]," he said."Occasionally, there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure that my family are safe, and it's genuinely as simple as that." "But for me, what it is is about balance," he added."If I have to do that -- not a decision that I would want to take -- but if I have to do that, then I will ensure, as I have done previously and I will continue to make sure that I do, to balance out that impact that I have." "And I have always offset my CO2," Harry said, referring to his carbon footprint. Read more: ABC News
If his mother carried the title of 'Princess Diana' until her death (even if it was unofficial by that point), after being so for 16 years, I don't think public opinion will be swayed that easily to not call him 'Prince Harry' after being one for over 35 years now.🤴🏼 Hurry. Good 😊 ElishaBeck3 Hope that works out for you. I see you going home at some point and asking for your title back.
