Ellen DeGeneres Defends Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Following Private Jet Criticism

Ellen DeGeneres is coming to the defense of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The 61-year-old entertainer spoke out after the royal couple faced much criticism over their use of a private jet to travel to Elton John‘s home in France for a holiday.

Ellen took to her Twitter to share her thoughts about the couple, who she says are extremely “compassionate people.”

Portia [de Rossi] and I met Prince Harry and Meghan in England to talk about their work on wildlife conservation. They were the most down-to-earth, compassionate people. Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you’re trying to do is make the world better,” Ellen wrote.

Find out what Elton had to say about the private jet criticism and the important change he made to their plane to honor their commitment to the environment.
