Prince William flies coach - and there's proof

Prince William schlepped home from a weekend wedding in Memphis just like any other weary traveler – in coach.

Dressed casually in jeans and a baseball cap, Will was spotted leaving the American Airlines Admiral Club at Dallas Fort Worth Airport on Sunday where he changed planes on his way back to London.

A picture of him was posted on Twitter by Eli Ross, a local reporter in Memphis, along with other pictures of the prince seated on the flight.

"I am still amazed Prince William flies COACH," Ross tweeted with another picture of Will taken from a few rows back on his flight into DFW. "That's pretty humble/awesome. Who knew?

But no surprise: The wedding of royal chum Guy Pelly to an American hotel heiress in Memphis on Saturday was a private affair so the young royals who attended paid their own way. (The royal bodyguards also fly coach.)

When Will flew into Memphis on Thursday, he changed planes at O'Hare Airport in Chicago, where he and his friends munched on nachos and wings in a private lounge in the International Terminal during their two-hour layover, according to the Chicago Tribune.
