Why Meghan And Harry's Flight Home From New York Is Suddenly Raising Eyebrows

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's flight home from New York City has been raising some eyebrows. Per Newsweek, the couple's whirlwind tour of the city included a visit to the 9/11 memorial, a meeting with New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, and a visit to the United Nations headquarters. 

According to The Daily Mail, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew home to California on a Dassault Falcon 2000LX luxury plane owned by the direct marketing company Guthy-Renker, which is perhaps best known for its controversial infomercials and celebrity-endorsed beauty products, such as Proactiv. 

In the past, the likes of Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Lopez, and Heidi Klum have been the face of beauty lines marketed by Guthy-Renker. So Prince Harry and Markle's recent flight on the firm's jet following their three-day trip has led to some speculation that the Duchess of Sussex could be planning to team up with Guthy-Renker and release her very own line of beauty products.

However, due to the company's checkered past, Markle may want to rethink any future collaborations with Guthy-Renker.

Per The Daily Mail, the company Guthy-Renker has been shrouded in several controversies over the years, including being placed under federal investigation, being fined over illegal business practices in the state of California, having their commercials banned in the United Kingdom for misleading consumers, and being sued for $26 million by thousands of past customers who claimed that the company's shampoo caused hair loss. 

However, it isn't just Meghan Markle's potential collaboration with the company that's sparking backlash. As The Sun reported, Prince Harry and Markle have been branded hypocritical by some detractors following their New York visit, during which the pair attended the Global Citizen Live concert, which aimed to pressure wealthy nations to help developing countries go green. 

After the Duke and Duchess were spotted boarding the jet, The Sun claimed that the couple's flight would produce roughly 17 tons of carbon emissions. "This totally muddies the waters of their climate message," said royal author Penny Junor. "They are shooting themselves in the foot by taking private flights."
