PRINCE Harry has been pictured for the first time since he was slammed for taking four gas-guzzling private jet trips in 11 days with Meghan Markle.

The Duke of Sussex was snapped today at the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final at Wembley – his first public engagement since July 25.

Harry, who is patron of the Rugby Football League, appeared in good spirits as he chatted with players and mascots ahead of kick off.

There was no sign of wife Meghan or baby Archie at the clash between St Helens and Warrington Wolves.

It comes amid fury after him and “eco warrior” Meghan were accused of hypocrisy after recently speaking out about environmental issues, then using private jets for trips around Europe.

Photos emerged of the Sussexes boarding a private jet with son Archie – despite frequently preaching about the environment.

They took four private jet flights in just 11 days, and the flights would have generated an estimated seven times more emissions per person than if they had flown commercially.

There are more than 20 scheduled departures from London airports to Nice each Wednesday, with an EasyJet return costing £232.

In contrast, brother William and his wife Kate Middleton took their family on a budget £73-a-head FlyBe plane to Balmoral.

The total cost for the family of five would have been just £365, while Harry and Meghan’s private Cessna jet – paid for by Sir Elton John – costs around £20,000 to hire.

But Sir Elton John defended the couple for taking the jet to France, saying he booked it due to the couple’s “high level of much-needed protection.”

Other A-listers have also rallied round Meghan after she came under fire.

Ellen DeGeneres, 61, chimed in the debate saying the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are attacked “for everything they do”.

British actress Jameela Jamil made a wild claim that England hates Meghan “because she’s black” – prompting a furious response from Piers Morgan.

And pal Jessica Mulroney slammed “racist bullies” on Instagram as the row against the royal couple intensified.

She wrote: “When someone faces unfair criticism, you call it out.

“When that person is your friend and your family, you call these critics what they truly are.

“Shame on you, you racist bullies.”

The jet-setting holidays came just after Harry attended a super-secret Google Camp event in Sicily – on July 30.

While there, the barefoot Prince gave an impassioned speech about climate change to celebs believed to include Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Campbell, Stella McCartney and Harry Styles.

He also repeated his vow to only have two kids because of his eco-concerns.
