Prince William flew in economy class with all of the regular people on a recent American Airlines trip from Memphis to Dallas. The royal happily sat in the back of the plane and mingled with all the common folk. See the pic that proves it!
After celebrating a friend’s wedding in Memphis, Tennessee, Prince William, the future king of England, not only bought his own plane ticket on commercial airline, but penny pinched by getting a seat in economy class for the journey. The royal was spotted on Sunday, May 4 cheerfully occupying a window seat in a coach row of three and chatting to his neighbors. Keep reading for the details of Will’s commoner flight!
Prince William Flies Economy
Prince William, 31, definitely proved that he’s a regular guy on Sunday, May 4, as he took his seat in the back of an American Airlines plane in coach!
After celebrating his friend Guy Pelley‘s wedding in Memphis, Tennessee over the weekend, the future king boarded a flight to Dallas on his way back home to the UK.
Thanks to local Tennesse news reporter Eli Ross, a snapshot of the back of Will’s head made its way onto Twitter to prove that being the Prince can be just like us!

William reportedly paid for the flight himself, according to the Daily Mail, which makes sense considering he wasn’t in Memphis on official business, but rather for his friends wedding, a social gathering.
Even though he did fly economy, he was, of course, accompanied by his official entourage of security.
A source told the Daily Mail that William’s five-day trip to the US would’ve cost around $84,000 just for security alone! So it makes sense that he tried to save money in at least one way!
William & Harry Twerk The Night Away At Their Friend’s Wedding
The royal duo allegedly took to the dance floor, and Harry, 29, was getting his moves on, according to TMZ! “Harry hit the floor pretty much as soon as the band started playing and he was twerking,” the site reports.
While Harry apparently quickly left the dance floor, after his twerk routine, and planted himself at the bar, William danced the night away!
“He loves to dance in a group with all his British friends,” a party-goer told TMZ. The lead singer of the Jimmy Church Band, who performed at the event, even commented on how nice Will was. “William had so much fun,” said the singer. “I was surprised with how humble he was, how kind.”
This might be our favorite royal story yet, but this is definitely not the first time we’ve seen the royals act like normal people. Kate Middleton has proven to be a super hands-on Mom, wiping Prince George‘s drool for example!
The royals just keep getting better! Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Let us know what you would do to twerk with Prince Harry!
