Prince William and Kate Prove Prince Harry and Meghan Wrong, And This Is How They Did It!
The drama surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan does not seem to be stopping anytime soon, as Prince William and Kate Middleton have just proven to all of us that it is possible for members of the royal family to travel around the world without using a private jet.
For those of you who have not been following the controversy surrounding the trips taken by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle, it all started when people observed the fact that the two of them had flown around in private jets on four different occasions.
The real issue does not pertain to cost, as it can very well be argued that the couple used their own money to travel in the exclusive jets. Their need to fly privately can also be justified if their concern for privacy is taken into account.
But what the people had an issue with was the substantial harm to the environment from all the carbon emissions from the private jets, something which could have been significantly lower had the two of them flying in commercial planes.
Can Royals Fly Commercial?
While Sir Elton John had come in the defense of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, clarifying that their carbon footprint from all the private flying had been offset by him through a contribution made to an organization that uses such money to fund environment-friendly projects, Prince William and Kate have now shown that perhaps flying privately was not necessary for Prince Harry and Meghan, at all.
According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose to fly with all three of their children in a commercial plane for their recent trip to the Scotland region. The flight had reportedly taken off from the International Airport in Norwich with the ultimate destination of Aberdeen Airport, although the pair stopped by the Balmoral estate to pay a visit to the Queen. But the most impressive fact about their trip is the cost: $89.
Their Own Share Of Luxury
But don’t think even for a second that the experience of flying in a commercial plane for the royals resembled anything like our own experiences, as they did receive some special treatment. For example, when the plane landed, a car was already waiting for the family to drive them to the Balmoral estate where the Queen resided, and a special escort guided them from the plane to the car.
According to a video made by one of the passengers who was on that same flight, the Prince humbly carried the luggage of his children all by himself, while Kate was holding young Prince Louis.
The rest of the passengers also opined that, had they not known the royals by face, they would never have guessed that it was somebody important because they acted and behaved like the rest of the passengers. Perhaps the only thing that helped them was securing a seat right at the front of the plane, which is something that Prince Harry and Meghan can also do to ensure greater security while flying in a commercial flight.
