Prince William and Kate Middleton opt for budget flight after Harry and Meghan's private jet drama

It was revealed recently that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took multiple flights on a private jet to Ibiza and Nice, France. Some on social media - as well as British tabloids - perceived the news as a potential spurn to the other royal couple.

William's use of a commercial flight was held up as a shining example to his brother in the newspapers, with the front page of the Sun newspaper declaring "Wills gives Harry a flying lesson". The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took a flight from Norwich in eastern England to Aberdeen on Scotland's east coast.

In the wake of the private jet drama, Prince William and Kate Middleton along with their family took an economy airline to reach Queen Elizabeth's summer residence of Balmoral Castle.

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge reacts, next to Britain's Prince William, as she holds a wooden spoon received during the King's Cup Regatta at a presentation ceremony in Isle of Wight, Britain August 8, 2019.

"We were delighted to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family on board one of our flights again, this time when they flew from Norwich to Aberdeen with our franchise partner, Eastern Airways", a FlyBe spokesman told CNN in a statement.

It would not comment on the cost of the flight, but prices for the route on the Flybe range from £73. Though Elton John came to their defence saying that he paid for the flight.

"After a hectic year continuing their hard work and dedication to charity, David and I wanted the young family to have a private holiday inside the safety and tranquility of our home".

After all the backlash Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been facing for their hypocritical actions regarding their environmentalism.
