Prince William was spotted by US reporter Eli Ross gracing economy class on an American Airlines flight between Memphis to Dallas on Sunday on the first leg home from a friend’s wedding in America.

It’s not the first time that William has taken to the skies with the rest of us – a while ago, he and Kate flew the budget airline easyJet after a skiing trip in France.

Don’t get too excited about the apparent revolution, though.

William usually flies first, and he and Harry were on the way home from a weekend celebrating friend Guy Pelly’s marriage to American hotel heiress Lizzy Wilson.

She happens to be in line to inherit the Holiday Inn empire and we can’t help wondering if the royal princes checked in to the Memphis branch…
