Prince Harry whisked his fiancee, Meghan Markle, to the French Riviera for a New Year break, it has been claimed.
The pair are said to have taken a scheduled, British Airways flight to Nice.
In a bid to avoid being spotted by other passengers, they boarded first and headed straight to the back of the plane, next to the rear toilets.
They also took up three rows of economy seats, either side of the aisle, even though there were only themselves and three “edgy and nervous” bodyguards in their party, according to the Daily Mail.
Prince Harry, 33, sat next to the window with a baseball cap pulled over his face, while Ms Markle, 36, sat next to him in a black beanie hat.
According to one fellow traveller, the aircraft actually took off several minutes early, much to the surprise of other passengers, and shaved 20 minutes off its two-hour flight time.
One told the newspaper: “It would have been offered and would have been non-negotiable.
“After what happened to his mother in this country and the issue of terrorism, it would be insisted on even for a private trip such as this.”
Kensington Palace declined to comment.
