Spotted: Prince William Flying Coach?!

Prepare to pick your jaw off the floor, minions, for I have the craziest royal scoop EVER: Prince William was spotted flying COACH. The heir to the British throne was spotted on an American Airlines flight from Memphis to Dallas following the wedding festivities for his friend Guy Pelly.

A lucky fellow passenger who got to stare at his head the entire flight snapped a pic and tweeted, “I am still amazed #Prince William flies COACH. That’s pretty humble/awesome. Who knew?”

I’ve never been on a commercial airplane before, let alone coach! I wouldn’t even know what to do with myself. But props to William, I guess, for proving that he really is the people’s prince. I do wonder if he was able to sweet-talk the flight attendant into giving him an extra bag of pretzels….

Tell me loves, does this make you love PW even more, or are you totally shocked and confused as to why he wouldn’t just take his private jet. XOXO

PS- you won’t believe who else was spotted flying coach! Check out the gallery below:

America Ferrera

Coach passengers greeted the Ugly Betty star with high fives and hellos as she made her way to the back of the plane for a flight to the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. A reporter for hilariously wrote: "Sure, you rich people in first class may have your free breakfast and your extra leg room and your complementary foot massages (or whatever it is that you're paying for), but we've got the girl from 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants' back here. Suck it."

RadarOnline reported that Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren were spotted sitting in coach on a flight in 2012--the ironic part? Their kids and nanny were getting first class treatment up at the front of the plane.

    He probably didn’t take his private jet because it’s not royal business. The royal family has been trying to tone down their over-the-top displays of wealth. And he’s pretty down to earth. He’s not on the throne yet. If he was, he could take anything he wanted, no matter what.
