Prince William Shuns Royal Treatment, Flies Coach After Guy Pelly Wedding

Did he enjoy any in-flight movies?

Prince William may be second in line to the throne, but that doesn't mean he's above flying in Economy Class on a domestic flight.

The heir was reportedly called "humble" by fellow passengers when he snubbed first class and mingled with Joe Public on the journey back from friend Guy Pelly's wedding to Lizzy Wilson.

He was travelling from Memphis to Dallas with American Airlines, according to The Independent, and then took another flight back to the UK.

A photo of the Duke of Cambridge mid-air appeared online thanks to US television reporter Eli Ross, who keenly shared a snap on Twitter.

It's not the first time he's shunned his privileges to sit in standard class, as he and his wife Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, have been travelling by Easyjet and Flybe in the past. Nice.

By all accounts Wills and his brother Harry had an "unbelievably wild" time with the festivities - with the latter even caught twerking.

But father-of-one William will presumably have a lot of jetlag to catch up on he returns home - as he'd only just returned from his Royal Tour to Australia and New Zealand when he then zoomed off to the States.

Let's hope Kate and George let him have a lie-in tomorrow!
