Kate Middleton and Prince William save their pennies

Prince William and Kate Middleton paid £36 each to travel home from Zara Phillips‘ wedding with budget airline Flybe at the weekend.

The frugal pair took seats alongside other passengers on Sunday as the carrier didn’t have a first class section. 

The only hint at their royal status, apart from their two bodyguards, was the blacked-out car waiting for them on the runway.

Wills and Kate, both 29, were travelling from Edinburgh to Manchester en route to their home in Anglesey, where the prince is an RAF search and rescue pilot.

Wills‘ little brother Prince Harry also saved on travel expenses by spending just £16.50 – plus £10 for his bag – to fly with EasyJet from London for his cousin’s big day.
