Ryanair has been given a taste of royalty after none other than Prince William boarded a flight with the budget Irish airline.
This pic of the heir to the British throne shows him wearing his normally-unseen glasses as he flew to Glasgow on business, and has since gone viral on the net.
Eagle-eyed passengers quickly spotted the prince on the flight to Scotland, and there were no ‘heirs or graces’ (soz) in sight – the future king (33) took a seat among everyone else on the plane.
Prince William was traveling with a bodyguard from London and one eyewitness said there was shock among the passengers upon spotting the dad-of-two.
“I never expected to see him on Ryanair, but it’s refreshing to see a member of the royal family take a cheap flight,” they told The Sun.
Apparently it’s not uncommon for the down-to-earth member of the Royal Family to opt for low-cost airlines though – a royal insider notes that it’s how William, wife Kate and brother Prince Harry usually travel.
The news comes following fellow VIPs Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie flying budget last weekend to Kensington Palace. Fair play, guys!
