The couple, who were making their first engagement since their split from the Royal family, have railed against fossil fuel emissions . . . jeopardising the Earth.

The Duke, 35, and Duchess of Suffolk, 35, have spoken of a ticking clock to save the planet.

Yet JP Morgan has been accused of pumping 61billion into companies behind fracking and Arctic oil and gas exploration.

US charity Rainforest Action Network made the claim three months before last weeks Miami summit in its Banking on Climate Change 2019 report.

PR guru Mark Borkowski said Harry and Meghans association with JP Morgan was not the best look.

He added: How they accept money, and from whom, is going to be a challenge going forward.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said: They need to be careful.

If you preach, you should practice what you preach.

When it comes to the rich and famous there is an awful lot of hypocrisy over climate change.

Twitter users also criticised the couple.

One said: Financing led by JP Morgan has provided new investment for fossil fuel companies, most aggressively expanding in new coal, oil and gas projects.

Harry and Meghan need to choose wisely.

JP Morgan last night declined to comment on RANs report.

On its corporate responsibility pages it states: Our goal is to source renewable energy for 100 per cent of our global power needs by 2020 and facilitate $200billion in clean financing by 2025.

Spokesmen for the Sussexes and the RAN did not respond to requests for a comment.
