Duchess Of Cambridge Surprises Passengers On Commercial Flight To England

Royals, they're just like us... kinda.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may have arrived in B.C. via a Canadian Air Force plane, but they don't always take chartered flights.

After completing her first official solo tour in the Netherlands, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge surprised first class passengers on a British Airways commercial flight when she boarded with her security detail.

This isn't the first time a member of the Royal Family has opted to leave the private jet at home.

In 2014, Prince William surprised travellers in Memphis when he boarded the economy section of a domestic flight to Dallas following the wedding of his friend Guy Pelly, Australia's News.com reports.

Will and Kate also took a non-private flight from Los Angeles to England in 2011, though it is not a regular occurrence for the royals to fly commercial.
