Many are wondering if Kate Middleton and Prince William are trying to appease the masses or score points in their alleged feud with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry by flying commercial.
Meghan and Harry have been reamed on social media and in the press for taking two private jet flights to Ibiza and the South of France recently, so Kate and William’s decision to fly commercial (on a FlyBe plane) with their three kids from Norwich to Aberdeen raised brows.
The party of five were headed to the Queen’s Barmoral Castle in Scotland. Surprised passengers reportedly saw the royals disembark, with William carrying bags with George and Charlotte’s help and Kate carrying Louis.
Barmoral Castle has been in the royal family since 1845, and features 7,000 acres to wander.
Celebrities, including Sir Elton John, Pink, Ellen DeGeneres, Jessica Mulroney and Jameela Jamil all passionately defended Meghan and Harry from critics. They are headed to South Africa in the fall, and all eyes will be on their travel arrangements.
