On June 22, Prince William was spotted aboard a Ryanair flight—an airline known for its budget-friendly prices—to Glasgow for a work trip with his new employer, Bond Air Services. He flew with his bodyguard.

He's not the only royal family member who favors budget airlines. According to an insider, his wife, Kate Middleton, and brother, Prince Harry, also fly on budget airlines. We can only hope this trend catches on—sitting elbow-to-elbow with a celebrity is the kind of thing vacation dreams are made of.
