Sometimes it’s private jets, sometimes it’s Ryanair.
This week, the British royals are on three separate continents: Meghan Markle is in Los Angeles; Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles are on a tour of Australia; and Prince William, Kate Middleton, and the Queen are scattered on estates throughout England. It’s a common scenario for the family, who, between their jobs and active social lives, are constantly hopping from place to place.
But how exactly do they get to these far-flung locales?
On the surface level, it’s an easy answer—by plane, train, or automobile, just like everyone else. But especially when aviation is involved, the journey there isn’t exactly straightforward.
It’s easy to assume, thanks to their serious wealth and worldwide fame, that the royals exclusively fly private. But they don’t. In fact, just last December, Harry and Meghan were said to have been spotted on a British Airways flight to Nice, sitting in the back of the plane by the restrooms.
