Prince William Flies Coach!

May 6, 2014 11:40 AM

Humble royal alert!

Prince William took an American Airlines flight from Memphis to Dallas on Sunday after attending pal Guy Pelly's wedding, and he flew coach like an average Joe!

A snap of HRH was taken by US television reporter Eli Ross, and you can clearly see Wills riding in economy with the rest of the passengers.

It is thought that the royal family tries to reduce travel costs wherever possible because they have a constant security detail of at least 4 officers from Scotland Yard's royalty protection squad with them, and paying for all their accommodations can get pricey!

Prince George wouldn't be caught dead flying anything other than first class, but apparently his daddy doesn't mind!

The Royal Tour has come to an end.

Prince William and Kate Middleton wrapped up their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia on Thursday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception at the Government House in the capital of Canberra on the last night of their visit Down Under

Kate concluded the tour with a bang in one of her most fashionable outfits of the vacation. She wore an ivory Lela Rose dress with cap eyelet sleeves and matching sheer eyelet peplum. She pulled her hair back to complete the sophisticated look.

Earlier that day, the couple visited the National Portrait Gallery where Kate stunned in an emerald green Catherine Walker coat dress.

During the stop at the Parliament House, William joked that baby George gained a lot from the trip thanks to the flurry of stuffed animals that he's been gifted.

"Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow," he said. "Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit. We go away with wonderful memories and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly. We greatly look forward to coming back. And when we do return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is and will yet become."

Hopefully, they'll also marvel at the U.S. again soon.

Seriously -- we didn't think we could possibly love Kate Middleton any more than we already did -- and then this photo of her planting a tree with children comes out. Now our hearts explode a bit more.

On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the National Arboretum, the site of a bushfire in 2003. During the step, Kate visited with local children, planted an oak Tree and did it all while looking absolutely fabulous.

Today is the last day of the the Royals' three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand. Currently, the Brits are making several stops through the Australian capital of Canberra. Say it ain't so!

For the tree-planting, the 32-year-old showed off her green thumb outwardly with an emerald green Catherine Walker coat dress.

The Duke and Duchess had all eyes on them when they later made a stop at the Parliament House, where Prince William made a speech reflecting on their trip with their son Prince George.

"Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow," William said. "Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit. We go away with wonderful memories, and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly. We greatly look forward to coming back. And when we do return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is, and will yet become."

Oh my gosh -- we love Prince William's British wit! But what we will miss most about the lack of daily photos of the young family -- that adorable Prince George!




Prince William And Kate Middleton Visit Ayers Rock In Australia

We love Will and Kate, but where's Prince George?!

On Tuesday Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Ayers Rock in Australia, and this is the latest stop on their three-week tour down under. Will's parents, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, famously struck a very similar pose at the same famous landmark some thirty years ago, so this is definitely one they're going to want to stick in the family photo album!

Apparently the royal couple were instructed chat with one another (or pretend to!) while the photo was being snapped, and Prince William joked, "So what shall we talk about?" But the future king of England did find some words to say, as he told his wife of nearly three years, "It's a beautiful sight though. Quite breath-taking."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also went to the cultural center at Ayers Rock, and after that they watched sunset and went back to their hotel.




Kate Middleton, Prince William Take Baby George To The Zoo

Finally, a stop Prince George could enjoy on the international Royal Tour.

Kate Middleton and Prince William took their tot to the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia on Sunday. The family attended the opening of the Prince George Bilby Exhibit so their eight-month-old met the Bilby that was named after him, naturally.

George was delighted to see the Australian marsupial, which is now on the verge of extinction. However, he was unimpressed with the plush version of the animal that the zookeeper gave him as a gift. When George couldn't play with the real creature, who he tried to grab, he grew grumpy and threw the toy that was given to him in place of the Bilby on the ground.

"He's trying to grab his ear," Kate told the zookeeper about her feisty son. "He's got quite a strong grab actually."

George later met koala bears and kangaroos that he was less eager to grab.

Kate Middleton Proves She's Not Pregnant By Drinking Wine

It looks like a new baby won't be joining the Royal Family any time soon.

Kate Middleton indirectly debunked pregnancy rumors by wine tasting with Prince William during a visit to a New Zealand vineyard on Sunday. In fact, she reportedly told the local wine-makers that she was "really enjoying being able to drink again after having baby George."

The Duchess, who looked preppy in a checkered blue collared shirt, blue blazer and skinny jeans, not only looked slimmer than ever, but sipped on wine during the tour of Amisfield Vineyard.

"The Duchess did take a little sip, but I don't think she's a big drinker," John Darby, the owner of the vineyard told reporters. "We nearly moved on without the Duke or Duchess having a glass of our wine, but [William] was keen to try it. He said, 'Hang on, let's enjoy a glass of wine. We can't pass up the opportunity.'"

However, Kate avoided alcohol on Thursday at the unveiling of Queen Elizabeth II's portrait at the Government House.

Prince William sparked pregnancy speculation on Friday when he hinted about having another child. While greeting a woman in Cambridge, New Zealand who had made a shawl for baby Prince George, the Duke said, "You might have to make another one soon." It looks like he was either just teasing or suggesting that his 8-month-old son is growing up fast.

They later visited a children's hospital and an aerospace museum during Friday's Cambridge trip.

Kate Middleton And Prince William Remind You That You WIll Never Be Royals

On the fourth day of their royal tour down under, Kate Middleton and Prince William managed to steal back some of the spotlight that their darling son grasped with his tiny baby hands.

Tthe royal couple were front and center for the unveiling of a new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II at the Government House in Wellington, New Zealand on Thursday.

For the ceremony, Kate wowed in a simple, custom Jenny Packham dress. Prince William made a speech during the unveiling and even spoke about his wee one's time in New Zealand, joking, “I swear I heard him doing the haka this morning." The haka is a loud and boisterous ancestral dance performed by the Maori -- and also at many rugby matches as it was adopted by the country's national rugby union team. William continued to joke, “I hope that George doesn’t keep you up! He’s a bonny lad and you’ll be pleased to know that he’s currently preparing for life as a prop forward!”

Later on that day, the duo also had quite the high-flying adventure when they visited the Omaka Heritage Centre, where Lord of the Rings director Sir Peter Jackson has a collection of World War One airplanes and memorabilia. William, who was a full-time pilot in the Royal Air Force's Search and Rescue Force for seven and a half years before retiring recently, certainly seemed at ease behind the vintage flying machine. Laughing and joking, both Wills and Kate seemed to get a kick out of the experience.

We might never be royals -- but we are so glad Kate and William are! We love this adorable couple!




Kate Middleton, Prince William And Prince George Are Picture Perfect In New Zealand

We might never be royals -- but they certainly are!

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince George looked picture perfect when they disembarked from their private plane together upon touching down at Wellington Military Terminal in New Zealand.

Wearing a scarlet Catherine Walker coat and matching Gina Foster pillbox hat, the duchess played the perfect part to represent England. It appears as though William's lady love selected this ensemble due to its similarity to a red coat that Princess Diana wore in March 1984, when she and Prince Charles visited Leicester, England.

Looking quite princely, the 31-year-old was dressed in a classic navy suit and maroon tie and baby George in all white. Eight-month-old George looks a little grumpy from his long flight!

Leaving the plane, Kate carried her lil' man down the stairs -- we love that she's a hands-on mom! It appears as though baby George is teething -- which is normal at eight months old.

The Australian tour has been carefully scheduled to minimize the impact on the young prince. Rather than changing their location daily (as is usually done), the royals are basing their tour around three main hubs: Wellington, Sydney and Canberra. The unusual decision is believed to be a result of minimize the trauma to the royal baby while teething.

The royal family received a traditional Maori Haka ceremonial welcome at Government House in Wellington, New Zealand. It looks like the young couple got quite the eyeful from the Maori tribesman upon their welcome! The couple looks completely unfazed -- and that's why we love them!
