William and Kate Leave L.A. -- and Fly Commercial!
The Duke and Duchess have left the building!
Wrapping up their North American tour, Prince William and Kate boarded a London-bound plane at LAX on Sunday afternoon. And for the journey home, the royals didn't charter a private plane -- they flew commercial!
William and Kate (plus their entourage and security) took a regularly scheduled flight on a British Airways jumbo jet. The royal group of 14 flew first class (seats 1A - 1K) on a flight with everyday passengers as well. Sadly, the newlyweds didn't get to wave before going onboard.

Another unexpected detail of their final day? Fashion icon Kate, 29, only donned one outfit for three engagements (a private charity event featuring Reese Witherspoon in Santa Barbara, a visit with kids on Skid Row in downtown L.A., and war vet event at Sony Studios). The Duchess wore a navy and white crochet top and a white pleated skirt from London store Whistles. This time, Kate's look was frugal; the blouse was from Whistles' 2007 fall collection!
Just before that flight, William, 29, gave his parting remarks at Sony Studios for Service Nation: Mission Serve, a program honoring members of the armed services. "As this is my last opportunity before we leave this afternoon, I would just say, on behalf of us both, how grateful we are to have been welcomed so warmly in the Golden State and the City of Angels. Thank you so much."
