They’re meeting with an expert, no less:
The Duke and Duchess are on their way to the remote Chiatibo Glacier in Broghil National Park, situated in the Chitral District of Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province. Here they will learn more from an expert about how climate change is impacting the glacial landscapes.

So, did the expert ask the royal couple about the ginormous carbon footprint and how that might be contributing to climate change?
And it’s weird this photo of the helicopter didn’t make it onto their official Twitter account:

You see, they get a pass and can use all the fossil fuels they want. It’s you at home that needs to change your behavior:
A journey well worth making if drawing attention to this environmental catastrophe will result in concerted efforts to tackle climate change in Pakistan. @ClimateChangePK @KensingtonRoyal https://t.co/8l057ii6yq
