Summer offer with the whole family: Prince William flew to the Grand Duchess Catherine and the three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Scotland, to visit Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral Castle. They took Thursday morning, no private jet, but a flight with the British low-cost airline "FlyBe" – to the surprise of other passengers. The nanny of the Cambridge family, Maria Borrallo, was also included. The flight should have cost about 80 euros per person.
According to the Daily Mail, a passenger present said that no one knew that the royal family was on board. "The family was in the lead, I often do this flight and I did not know it, nobody knew that they were in the plane." The British newspaper has published photos showing Prince William and Duchess Kate guiding children on the runway. George and Charlotte help his father carry the luggage while Kate pursues him with little Louis in his arms and nurse.
Even for the state visit, Kate came in the regular flight
This is not the first time that the future king of Britain uses a line machine. In 2014, Prince William traveled from Memphis to Dallas in economy class, and his wife Kate also chose a British Airways machine in 2016 for their official visit to the Netherlands.
William's brother, Prince Harry, and his wife Meghan have recently been criticized for their flight. British media and some social media users have accused the couple of hypocrisy because they were traveling four times in a private jet in the space of three weeks while participating in climate protection. The musician Elton John, the presenter Ellen DeGeneres and the singer Pink then took the royal couple in protection. Critics shocked the stars.
In September, Harry and Meghan will also travel to Balmoral with their son Archie to visit the Queen. We do not know yet how the family will come to Scotland.
