Passenger Reacts to Prince William, Kate Middleton & Their Three Kids Flying Commercial Airline

Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton, along with their kids Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 16 months, flew from Norwich, England to Aberdeen, Scotland on a FlyBe partner aircraft on Thursday (August 22).

Passengers on the flight did not realize that the royals were on board as they boarded separately.

“Earlier in the flight, I’d had the feeling that someone had come on the plane that I’d recognised – but I thought it was just a footballer. We landed, and people then saw two black Range Rovers on the tarmac. Suddenly, Will, Kate, and the kids all got up, and left. They weren’t harassed by anyone at all as they got off the plane. They just seemed like a family travelling together to be honest,” a passenger told The Sun. “No one saw them get on the plane either. It was amazing how they did it – they must have slipped on quietly, after people were already seated. I couldn’t believe my eyes. You don’t expect to see royalty on a budget airliner.”

“We were delighted to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family on board one of our flights again, this time when they flew from Norwich to Aberdeen with our franchise partner Eastern Airways,” a FlyBe rep said in a statement to E! News.

This news comes just a few days after Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle received backlash for flying private on their vacation.
