Just a quick post in acknowledgement of our next in line to the throne Prince William who recently took a coach seat in a commercial plane in America. This may not be a massive deal to many, but it’s one that I feel deserves recognition. This young man is one of the most recognised people in the world, he has had waiters, servants and luxury at his disposal since the day he was born, and despite this…he’s willing to fly in economy. This trip would reportedly cost around £250, a snippet of what else would have been available to him. Don’t tell me that all royals live a lavish lifestyle and squander taxpayers money, because quite clearly they don’t. Yes the prince had around the clock protection whilst visiting the US. but clearly they tried to save whenever they could, and for this I salute you sir!
