Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Caught a Commercial Flight to France!

Prince Harry doesn't always get the royal treatment. 

ET has learned that Harry, 33, and his 36-year-old fiancee, Meghan Markle, flew commercial to France, where they spent their New Year's holiday in Monaco and Monte Carlo.

It was a quick trip for the couple, whose first joint engagement of 2018 will take place next week in Brixton, London. Harry and Meghan will visit the studios of youth-orientated radio station Reprezent FM, located at POP Brixton. 

This isn't the first time a royal has flown commercial. In October 2016, Prince William's wife, Kate Middleton, took a British Airways flight to the Netherlands for her first solo trip as the Duchess of Cambridge. 

Kate does have some personal ties to British Airways. Her mother, Carole Middleton, was reportedly once an employee of the airline, and served as a flight attendant when she met the Duchess' dad, Michael.

Harry and Meghan joined Kate, William and Queen Elizabeth on Christmas Day for services at Church of St. Mary Magdalene.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 4, Harry said he and his bride-to-be had a "great time" over Christmas, and was impressed with how well she was getting along with his family.

"She's done an absolutely amazing job,” he boasted about Meghan. “She's getting in there and it's the family that I suppose she's never had.”
