The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge surprised many passengers on board a FlyBe plane when they boarded the flight in Edinburgh on their way home after the wedding of Zara Philips and Mike Tindall. Initially what started out to be an exciting encounter soon turned into a shocking scene as Tracy Burns, a school teacher from Edinburgh recalls.
'I went to shake William's hand and he just stared at me with these cold, dead eyes. I broke the awkward silence by congratulating them on their wedding but he interrupted and said "you're in my seat peasant, now get out and don't you dare touch me!"
Other witnesses heard the outburst from the Duke which was soon followed by a tirade of abuse from the Duchess, reportedly mocking the school teacher of cheap tastes in fashion. The unexpected exchange soon prompted jeers from other passengers as Burns had the demeaning task of removing her bags and locating another seat in the aircraft.
Airline staff confirmed that a verbal altercation took place between the Royals and another passenger and that the atmosphere soon turned very sour.
Jane Thomas, a stewardess on board the flight, told police that 'the Duke was waving his hand luggage at nearby passengers and threatening that he could all have them hanged in the Tower Of London - I didn't even know that place still existed.'
Even once flight staff managed to control the situation and the aircraft successfully departed on schedule, there was still more trouble from the couple. Demanding a "magnum of champagne and a bowl of caviar", the Duke and Duchess then vented their anger and frustration on the staff and continued to do so for the duration of the flight.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry alarmed easyJet staff when he calmly approached the pilot's door and asked if he could fly the plane. What was more concerning for the people on board the flight was the fact that he was dressed in a Nazi uniform, an outfit he undoubtedly kept in his hand luggage and changed into in the toilets.
At this point several flight attendants warily approached the Prince and politely explained how members of the public are unable to gain access to the cockpit and that he should return to his seat. A nearby passenger, Jackie Wilson, told our sources that Prince Harry said "I'm no member of public, I'm a f***ing Prince and if I can fly a helicopter I'm sure I can fly some s***ty plane!"
Revelations of such aggressive behavior are sure to shock the public and ruin the squeaky clean image of the Royal couple and Prince Harry. Clarence House were asked for an official statement but gave no comment. In light of these events, Clarence House will no doubt reconsider attempts on making members of the Royal Family seem like ordinary folk and arrange private flights.
