The Royal Family are constantly on the move, travelling around the globe as part of their royal duty. In fact, the Queen alone is the most well-travelled monarch in history, having flown around the world an impressive 42 times. However, the recent backlash from the media about how much money is spent chartering private jets has triggered a change for the way the younger royals travel. The future of royal travel looks very different.
Already Prince William and Prince Harry have been documented flying commercially with their families, both for private holidays and as part of their duty.
According to a royal expert, this is only going to become more common for the family who are creeping further away from private jet travel.
Aviation journalist Keith Wilson was interviewed as part of a recent Channel 5 documentary Secrets of the Royal Flight.
He explained: "The princes are probably two of the most down-to-earth members of the Royal Family that could exist.

“So for them to go and use a budget airline to get somewhere quickly recognises a certain sense of responsibility. Why not? Good for them.”
However, the way the Royal Family experience commercial travel may be slightly different to regular ticket holders.
Royal correspondent Emily Andrews explained: “I think that for their public duties the younger royals will definitely continue to travel commercially because it is more cost-effective, and then normally what happens is they get an upgrade into first class.”
