Prince William stunned fellow passengers, by flying a commercial flight on Sunday, it was revealed today (Wednesday). The future King of England took a scheduled Swiss International Air Lines flight back to Manchester, England after attending a weekend wedding in Switzerland, according to a March 6 report by Manchester Evening News.
The Duke of Cambridge reportedly boarded the Zurich-Manchester plane first and was seated in the first class section. As the remaining passengers boarded, they had to walk past the 30 year old father-to-be -- leaving many stunned at their fellow passenger. "He'd been taken onto the plane first so he was sat down as we were walking on. It made everyone do a double take and there was plenty of gasps as people realized who it was," one passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, revealed.
Witnesses say flight attendants pulled a black curtain across the doorway between the economy and first class sections once the flight was ready to take off. By then, however, the entire plane knew they were riding with royalty.
Prince William is believed to have flown onto Wales as he returned to work at RAF Valley in Anglesey and could not join Kate Middleton for the royal engagements in Grimsby on Tuesday. The Duchess is not believed to have been on the flight, as she was in London ahead of the Grimsby tour.
