  • The royals opted for low cost airline Flybe to journey home Zara Phillips wedding

    They’ve flown in helicopters, private jets and even a plane sent by the Canada Royal Airforce, but it seems the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decided to travel home from Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall’s Scottish wedding in a more normal style.

    The royal couple astounded fellow passengers when they boarded a budget Flybe flight to Manchester on Sunday, on the first leg of the journey back to their Anglesey home.

    It’s thought the down-to-earth pair travelled with their royal protection officers, but sat alongside other passengers for the short flight – which could have cost as little as £35.

    But unlike their fellow travellers, William and Kate were whisked away by a car waiting on the tarmac as soon as their plane touched down.

    And it seems the Duke and Duchess weren’t the only royals happy to travel home from the nuptials in budget style.

    According to reports, Prince Harry caught an Easyjet flight back to London on the same afternoon, going through security with other passengers and paying an additional £10 to check in his bag.

    Newlyweds Zara and Mike were also spied leaving the pretty Scottish location on Sunday – although it’s not clear how they made their way back to London – and both were back at work today.
