Several celebs came to the defense of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after trolls came after them for their use of a private jet. More inside...

If we haven’t learned by now, please don’t come for royalty.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently caught some flack from environmentalists for chartering a private jet to visit friend and music icon Elton John.

Elton was not here for the rude remarks against his friends and went to Instagram to give a nice little read to those who had something bad to say.

“I am deeply distressed by today’s distorted and malicious account in the press surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s private stay at my home in Nice last week,” his caption read.

The “Bennie and the Jets” legend had a close friendship with Prince Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana.

"Prince Harry’s Mother, Diana Princess Of Wales, was one of my dearest friends. I feel a profound sense of obligation to protect Harry and his family from the unnecessary press intrusion that contributed to Diana’s untimely death,” he revealed on Instagram.

I am deeply distressed by today’s distorted and malicious account in the press surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s private stay at my home in Nice last week. Prince Harry’s Mother, Diana Princess Of Wales was one of my dearest friends. I feel a profound sense of obligation to protect Harry and his family from the unnecessary press intrusion that contributed to Diana’s untimely death. After a hectic year continuing their hard work and dedication to charity, David and I wanted the young family to have a private holiday inside the safety and tranquility of our home. To maintain a high level of much-needed protection, we provided them with a private jet flight. To support Prince Harry’s commitment to the environment, we ensured their flight was carbon neutral, by making the appropriate contribution to Carbon Footprint™ I highly respect and applaud both Harry and Meghan’s commitment to charity and I’m calling on the press to cease these relentless and untrue assassinations on their character that are spuriously crafted on an almost daily basis.

Once the world got wind of the backlash, other celebs stepped up to come to the defense of the couple, including daytime talk show host and comedian Ellen Degeneres.

"Portia 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," she said. "Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you’re trying to do is make the world better."

Singer Pink also chimed in.

“I’m happy to see people coming to the defense of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The way people treat her is the most public form of bullying I have seen in a while. It’s out of control. Let’s all be a bit kinder, huh? Let’s show our children that it’s cool to be kind,” she tweeted.

 

Harry and Meghan are no strangers to being judged by the court of public opinion for just about everything from their royal wedding to the Duchess’ pregnancy and birth of their baby boy Archie.

Actress Jameela Jamil did not hold back and said what many of us have known since day one.

"Ugh. Dear England and English press, just say you hate her because she's black, and him for marrying a black woman and be done with it God dammit. Your bullying is so embarrassing and obvious. You've all lost your marbles. It's 2019. Grow up," she tweeted.

 

Glad someone said it. When will others just let people enjoy their things? Sighs.

By the way, the British media touted the fact Prince William and Kate took an "economic commercial flight" on their latest jaunt to Aberdeen.  What people may not realize is, the entire jet plane was reportedly empty except for them.  No word on if  they made an appropriate contribution to Carbon Footprint™ as well.
