Prince Harry Was Spotted In Economy On A Commercial Flight And The Photos Are Everything

This is a lot to take in

Let’s face it when it comes to royal rule breaking Prince Harry isn’t exactly in new territory. The Duke of Sussex has yet again torn up the rule book, being pictured on a commercial British Airways flight back home to London after a quick trip to Rome. 

Instead of flying privately, the Duke of Sussex opted to board a regular plane – although reportedly with security, naturally – and was very polite when people started to recognise that they were travelling alongside a member of the royal family. Thankfully, a stealthy passenger managed to get a snap of the new dad. 

The photo, shared to a royal fan account, wrote: “Amy Garrick, a member in a Facebook group about travelling shared her experience after she stumbled upon Prince Harry yesterday during her flight from Rome to London. She wrote: ‘I haven’t had anything worth sharing, but this morning leaving Rome I got up to use the bathroom and I had to wait. As I’m standing there, I look over and see a guy who looks like Prince Harry. And he has a wedding ring on and looks very tired. The guy next to him looks like security and is glaring at me. Finally, my brain clicks and I realise, it is Prince Harry on the way back to London from Rome. He was at a polo tournament. He politely smiled and said hi when he realized I knew who he was’.”

She went on to say that Harry also thanked the cabin crew as he got off the plane.

It’s not the first time Prince Harry has been spotted on a commercial flight either. Before their wedding, Meghan Markle and Harry were spotted on a flight to Nice, France, and Prince William and Kate Middleton have also dabbled in commercial travel. 

Next time you fly, you might want to do a quick scan of any royal family members before getting settled.
