Prince William flew back to London on a public plane
Prince William flew back to London with fellow football fans on a public plane on Tuesday (21.06.16).
The 34-year-old royal appeared to be feeling blue as he hopped on the British Airways aircraft in Leon after watching England draw against Slovakia in the UEFA European Championship in France on Monday night (20.06.16).
Passenger James, who was sat behind the prince in the airline’s Club World Class, told the Mail Online: “Everyone was on the plane and suddenly Prince William got on and sat in the front. We knew something was going on because all these security guards got on board.
“Then, at the last minute, William appeared at the front and put his own black sports bag in the overhead locker.
“Almost as soon as he sat down I think he fell asleep because he put his head back and seemed to doze off.
“We were all tired after being put through a roller coaster of emotions so I don’t blame him for falling asleep.”
Upon landing at London’s Heathrow airport, the prince was the first to be escorted off the aircraft as he was ushered towards a waiting black Range Rover parked on the tarmac.
The flame-haired hunk no doubt spent the rest of the day celebrating his birthday, which falls on June 21, in “private” with his wife Duchess Catherine and their two children Prince George, two, and Princess Charlotte, 13 months.
