THE DUKE of Sussex has urged the travel industry to “build back better” after Covid-19 as he made his first public appearance since a series of royal revelations were published.

Prince Harry made the comments at a virtual global summit for his sustainable tourism project Travalyst.

“Businesses are hurting significantly, and I’ve heard from some of you who are currently struggling to put food on your family’s tables and make ends meet because there are no tourists and therefore no income,” he said.

“Before the pandemic unfolded we witnessed more and more young people expressing an interest in authentic travel experiences and an ability to partake in trips that are greener, that allow them to support local communities, uphold heritage and protect destinations and cultures,” he said.

“This is the future of travel, and a future that Travalyst is here to support and catalyse.”

His speech came after The Times published claims Harry was angered by what he perceived to be his brother Prince William’s “snobbish” attitude towards wife Meghan.
