The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children have flown to Scotland on a budget airline for their annual holiday with the Queen, days after their brother and sister-in-law were criticised for using several private jets in a matter of days.
The Cambridge Family travelled to Balmoral via a FlyBe flight, where advance tickets cost £73.
The young royals were also filmed carrying their own backpacks as they made their way to black range rovers waiting to take them to Balmoral to see the Queen and Prince Philip.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have this week faced criticism for using private jets for four flights in the space of 11 days as they holidayed in Ibiza and Nice, despite their public commitment to the environment.
Celebrity friends of the ”eco warrior” meghan have been forced to defend the former actress, claiming she couldn’t get commercial flights due to the ”security risk”.
But down to earth Kate and William travelled with the budget airline from Norwich international Airport to Aberdeen Airport this morning.
The total cost for the family fo five would have been just £365, while Harry and Meghan’s private Cessna Jet paid for by Sir Elon John cost around £20,000 to hire.
