Prince Harry went all commercial for Rugby World Cup trip

Air smiles: The Duke of Sussex

THE Duke of Sussex took a commercial flight to the Rugby World Cup final in Japan — and then flew back premium economy.

He was photographed on a flight from London to Tokyo last Friday by Irish drag queen Victoria Secret — who then shared the snap on Instagram.

‘Sitting across from Prince Harry on our flight to Tokyo and I can confirm he is a beaut,’ she wrote on Twitter.

‘Nearly fell off my seat when he came on board.’

This summer, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex faced criticism for taking four private jet journeys in 11 days, rather than opting for commercial flights.

Celebrities defended Harry and Meghan, with singer Sir Elton John revealing that he provided the couple and their baby son Archie with a private flight to Nice to ‘maintain a high level of much-needed protection’.

Sir Elton said he had made sure the flight was carbon-neutral by making the ‘appropriate contribution’ to a carbon footprint fund.

Harry has said he only takes private jets to protect his wife and son — and ‘99 per cent’ of his flights are commercial.
