Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a quiet escape to the French Riviera just after Christmas to ring in the new year.

The pair reportedly got to their holiday destination by flying economy class just like the rest of us, boarding an early morning flight before any other passengers just before New Year’s Eve. In a further attempt to go unnoticed, the couple sat in the very last row of the plane, right next to the toilets. Harry tried to go incognito by sitting next to the window baseball cap pulled over his eyes, while Meghan sat in the middle seat. Spoiler alert: Everyone saw them.

While the couple’s vacation started off like a commoner’s trip, it ended as anything but.

According to Daily Mail, while in the French Riviera, Harry and Meghan spent some quality time with friends who reportedly included Prince Albert, and his wife, Princess Charlene. Prince Harry and Meghan reportedly stayed in Monaco with their fellow royals for two days as they celebrated the start of 2018.

According to a source, “Harry and Meghan were somewhere very private and very expensive. Monte Carlo is party central at this time of the year, and the word is that the British royals really enjoyed themselves.” The source added: “The fun could well have been laid on by Prince Albert, who is a close friend of Harry's. What's certain is that they were partying like tycoons on New Year's Day.”

However, this may be simply hearsay as a source close to Prince Albert called the partying “news” to them.

For Prince Harry and Meghan’s return trip to England they reportedly upgraded their transportation to a private helicopter, which took off on Tuesday morning at 11 a.m. Though the couple’s trip was brief we’re sure they had plenty of fun. The couple, however, has more than a few things on their 2018 plate that they simply must attend to.

As Daily Mail noted, the pair will next be spotted together next week when they will visit the London studios of 107.3FM, which trains young people with new media and employment skills.

Then, you know, they just have that pesky royal wedding to plan.
