Prince William Flies Economy After Wedding

He may be the future king, but Prince William appeared to have no heirs and graces when he was spotted flying economy class on his way home from a friend's wedding in the US.

The Duke of Cambridge, who was in the US with Prince Harry, took the American Airlines flight from Memphis to Dallas on Sunday.

He caught the internal flight before his long-haul journey home after a weekend celebrating friend Guy Pelly's marriage to American hotel heiress Lizzy Wilson.

The 31-year-old was snapped sitting in a window seat by US reporter Eli Ross who posted the image on Twitter, saying: "#EXCLUSIVE PIC: I am still amazed #Prince William flies COACH.

"That's pretty humble/awesome. Who knew?"

William, who was photographed at Memphis airport wearing jeans, a blue shirt, white trainers and a baseball cap, is understood to have sipped water during the flight.

Although he usually flies first class, it is not the first time he has flown in more cramped surroundings.

In August 2012, William and the Duchess of Cambridge flew with budget airline easyJet after a week-long skiing trip in the French Alps.
