The Duke of Cambridge Prince William proved he's just like us mere mortals this week when he flew back home economy class - we repeat: economy class - after attending close pal Guy Pelly's wedding in Memphis, Tennessee.We already knew Wills and his royal wife Kate Middleton were pretty frugal folk - we mean, how many times can Kate recycle those Russell And Bromley courts? - but it was still a bit of a surprise to see the Duke scrimping on travel when he's used to flying about on private jets (see the Royal Tour!).

According to the Daily Mail, William is "understood to have ordered water during the 1hour 30 domestic flight." Now was that still or sparkling?
This isn't the first time the royals have been spotted pinching the pennies while in transit. Back in the olden days of 2011 the Duke and Duchess caught a Flybe flight from Edinburgh to Manchester to attend the wedding of the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall.
