Seven rooms, two kitchens, one with chef, infinity pool overlooking the island of Formentera, and direct access to the beach with jetty to board. Its price, about 120,000 euros, as published by The Sun , that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle could have paid to enjoy during a week of the Sa Calma mansion, one of the billionaire villa of the luxurious Vista Alegre urbanization, during Your vacation on the island of Ibiza.
At the moment what is taken for granted is that they stayed at Vista Alegre, where more normal mansions range from 3,500 to 22,000 euros a week, and includes extras such as chefs, butlers, chauffeurs and yoga teachers, which has served to seduce previously personalities like Paul McCartney or dj David Guetta .
Whipping the Dukes of Sussex is becoming one of the favorite activities of the British press. The last wave of criticism comes to account of this trip of the couple and their baby Archie, between August 6 and last Monday 12, and that they managed to carry so secretly that there is no image, and did not even transcend their visit until They left the island. However, its price has made it a matter of state.
The English have taken account and are seeing that the thing has been very expensive, so they have put to work to know who has paid the getaway that served to celebrate the 38th birthday of Meghan .
They also denounce that the visit has been little ecological, just after Prince Harry participated in Sicily in the Google Camp. A meeting of celebrities and businessmen that the technology giant invited this year to show their concern about climate change. And right after Harry assured Vogue, with his wife as guest editor, that they would have no more than two children, precisely for environmental reasons .
Although there are fourteen regular flights between Ibiza and London or the south of England, the Daily Mail claims that they will use a private jet, much more expensive and not sustainable. Specifically, a Gulfstream 200 for the first leg, and a Cessna 500 XL for the return, which they call a medium-sized, nine-seater executive reactor, which they rented for 22,000 euros from the Nets-Jeys company, known as "the Uber of millionaires. " It is an aircraft that also generates seven times more CO2 per person than a commercial flight.
There is the possibility, of course, that the flight was a gift from Argentine polo player Nacho Figueras , one of Harry's best friends, and to whom Nets-Jeys sponsors the matches, according to his shirts. A fact that has aroused even greater interest in the United Kingdom, both in case it has been paid with public money, as if it has been a gift taking advantage of its position in the royal family.
And it is not the first time that Sussex is criticized for the issue of airplanes. Since precisely for the Google conference they took a private one and a helicopter. In fact they have calculated that the movements of celebrities invited to the Google Camp would have scattered 800 tons of CO2 across the planet's sky . And the same thing when Meghan wanted to hold a baby shower media in New York, and returned to London in a private jet to which her friend Amal Clooney invited her.
But the British press continues to make accounts with the Ibiza. And if you add the plane, private security and the villa in which they stayed, the thing is between 55,000 and 110.00 euros. The accounts that the Daily Mail does include that security guards cost them 110,000 euros a year, which with a security of five employees would have been put at about 11,000 euros for the whole week, not counting the cost of carrying them and bringing them back .
The Daily Mail also complains that from the press department of the Royal House they refuse to give details of the trip or its financing, ensuring that it is a private matter. It is not even reported if the Spanish Police and Civil Guard were involved in their safety .
The British media can resort to the Freedom of Information Act, although the Royal Family is exempt from compliance, but as an example of transparency they invite the media to ask questions by sending a sealed letter (an email is not allowed) to Buckingham Palace .
It is not the first time that Meghan comes to the island, where it is known that she was already in 2016 with some friends, such as the designer Misha Nonoo .
The truth is that the stays of the royal family in Ibiza have never been without controversy. Not even those of David Cameron when he was prime minister, and who was accused of excessive vacations on the island.
Gary Gooldsmith , the controversial uncle of Kate Middleton , has a mansion in Cala Jondal, where both she and Prince William came to spend a few days on vacation as boyfriends.
The former Maison Bang Bang, now 'Gold Treasure', is rented for 15,000 euros a week. It has a pool, tennis court, several rooms, four rooms with bathroom, gym, jacuzzi, sauna, barbecue, bar. And there was even speculation that Harry and Meghan could have stayed in it. But the remedy would have been worse than the disease after Goldsmith has become famous in British tabloids for being caught beating his partner, or about to use drugs.
