The Internet is going crazy as they talk about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The royal couple and their family took an economy flight £73 per person in a FlyBe plane to go to Balmoral.
It is still unclear why they took that flight even though Prince Harry and Meghan use private jets.
On the other hand, a FlyBe spokeswoman said: “We were pleased to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family on board with one of our flights again.”
It is not unusual anymore for the royal couple to travel on budget airlines. However, the reason why the internet and the media are making this an issue is because of the timing of the move.
They believe that it is no coincidence with Prince Harry and Meghan private jet tour. The media are assuming that Prince William and Kate intentionally took the economy flight to “troll” the other royal couple.
However, Metro said that royals have taken an economy flight before. The royal couple took a FlyBe flight in 2011 from Edinburgh to Manchester for the wedding of William’s cousin Zara Tindall.
On the other hand, some critics are bashing Prince Harry and Meghan for flying by private jets which produce more carbon emissions than an economy flight.
Fortunately, Sir Elton John defended Prince Harry, Meghan and their son Archie in taking his private jet to go to his house in Nice, in the south of France, saying:
“We guaranteed their aircraft was carbon neutral, by making the proper contribution to Carbon Footprint.”
