London, Aug 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed modesty when they flew cattle class during their trip from the wedding between Mike and Zara over the weekend. During their trip, the Duke and Duchess flew with the other passengers in the same class when they boarded the £16.50 per passenger flight.

They were joined by their bodyguards and other entourage during the trip. Kate and William were on their way back from the wedding in Edinburgh when they chose to fly in the discounted flight. The pair got down at the Manchester Airport because that is nearest to their home.

The royal went through the normal procedure at the airport like all the other passengers. The latest public display of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge comes in the wake of the call by Queen Elizabeth for the Royal Family to spend modestly in the wake of the financial struggle facing the United Kingdom.

A spokesperson for Manchester Airport told reporters that, “With the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge living not too far away in North Wales, we were hoping to see them more often and become their local international airport of choice and we are looking forward to welcoming them through our doors over the coming years.”
