Did you ever think you'd know this much about the travel logistics of Britain's royal family? I definitely didn't—and I'm a lifelong royals fan.
But the latest controversy surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's use of a private jet is showing no signs of slowing down. The latest development that's causing a heated debate on social media involves Prince Harry's brother, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. The Daily Mail reports that the Cambridges—along with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—took a budget commercial airline flight to Scotland this morning. (They are likely going to visit Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at Balmoral, where they spend a portion of the summer.)
For context: Prince Harry and Markle were criticized earlier this week for taking a private jet to Elton John's home in Nice while also touting environmental causes. John defended the Sussexes' use of his plane, citing security concerns and noting that the flight was carbon neutral thanks to a donation he made.
Now direct comparisons are being made between the two couples' recent plane uses. Of course, it should be noted that we don't know how many times Middleton and Prince William have flown on private jets in the past or when Prince Harry or Markle have been on commercial flights. (Though Prince Harry was spotted on a British Airways flight earlier this spring.) We're also not privvy to any security concerns involved in travel planning for any of the royals.
Of course, this isn't stopping the chatter online:
Some even think this is a PR play by Prince William and Kate Middleton to garner favor, but there's no hard evidence of that:
Who knows what's going on here, honestly. Regardless, these tweets are clear we should all take some advice from Taylor Swift and just calm down.
