It seems that every time Meghan Markle steps out of the house people attack her for something.

This time it involves Sir Elton John.

Last night, the trolls came pretty hard at Prince Harry and Meghan, accusing them of harming the environment because they used a private jet to go to Ibiza.

Cosmo shared that, according to the critics, they're major hypocrites who don't practice what they preach.

Elton John took to the Twitter to set the record straight. He shared he lent the Royal couple his private jet because he felt it was important for security reasons.

The Rocket Man singer also weighed in against the critics accusing Prince Harry and Meghan of not caring about the environment.

Elton shared that to offset the environmental damage from flying a private jet, he made a donation to an organization called Carbon Footprint, which puts funds toward projects like tree planting and promoting clean drinking water and wind power.

Elton also emphasized the importance of his friendship with Princess Diana, and that he feels it his duty to protect Harry.
