Passengers were said to have been absolutely shocked when the mum-of-two walked onto the aircraft, according to the New Zealand Herald, and took a seat closest to the front of the plane.
Wearing the same light-blue Catherine Walker skirt suit she had worn for that day’s activities, the 34-year-old traveled with a team of bodyguards and staff during the flight. Aside from the prime seating and permission to deplane a few minutes before other passengers, the royal was treated just like any other commoner throughout the flight.
A passenger on the flight said that he had “never seen so many iPhones pop up at once” upon the Duchess’ entrance.
Kate’s no stranger to British Airways, as her mother, Carole, and father, Michael, have both worked as flight attendants for the airline company. Prince William also surprised passengers when he was spotted taking an American Airlines commercial flight from Memphis to Dallas in 2014.
