William And Kate Travel First Class On Britsh Airways To Boston: The cabin crew who served the Prince and Princess of Wales yesterday on their eight-hour commercial trip from London to Boston described them as “utterly charming.” The 40-year-old royal couple has traveled to the United States for a quick three-day tour of the state capital of Massachusetts before attending the second annual Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony at the MGM Music Hall tomorrow night.

The majority of the first-class seats were occupied by the royal couple’s entourage during the eight-hour flight, according to CBS. Brent Scuttles, a passenger two rows behind Prince William, acknowledged it was a complete “surprise” to see the royals traveling on a commercial aircraft. You take a second look to make sure you see who you think you see, he said.
The first-class traveler called the father-of-three “slight” and stated the Princess was “as gorgeous as one would anticipate.” The Prince and Princess of Wales were reportedly seen conversing with other travelers nearby and discussing their itinerary for the trip, which included going to a Boston Celtics game last night, according to the website.

In addition, the pair is anticipated to meet President Biden on Friday at the White House before the evening’s Earthshot event. Impressed flight attendants praised the couple for being “utterly charming” to serve. Jonathan Wood, a fellow passenger, claimed that as the royal marriage became widely known, there was a “buzz” throughout the aircraft.
Even though the Prince and Princess of Wales taking a commercial flight shocked passenger Jo Adkins, another said it made sense given the focus of their royal tour on the environment. Prince William established the Earthshot competition in 2020 to promote creative environmental solutions.
Passengers were reportedly instructed to wait to evacuate until the Prince and Princess of Wales had already exited the aircraft as they touched down at Logan Airport. According to the article, 12 state troopers were standing by to accompany the couple to their first engagement of the day, a tour of Boston City Hall.

When it was discovered that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had taken four private flights in just 11 days, they came under fire in August 2019. The pair came under fire for their ‘enormous hypocrisy’ earlier this year after it came to light that they had taken their kids Archie and Lilibet back to their £11 million Montecito mansion aboard a gas-guzzling Bombardier Global 6000 before the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations were over.
The Prince and Princess of Wales’ first trip to the US in eight years have been overshadowed by a racism crisis roiling Buckingham Palace. After landing in the US, they joined 20,000 basketball fans to support the Boston Celtics and promote the Earthshot Prize awards on day one in the city.
A few hours after Lady Susan Hussey, the Prince’s godmother and a former lady-in-waiting to the late Queen was accused of uttering racist remarks at a reception held by Queen Consort Camilla, William and Kate landed in Boston.
After allegedly asking Ngozi Fulani, a black woman who runs domestic abuse charity Sistah Space in Hackney, “What part of Africa are you from,” Lady Susan Hussey, who served as Queen Elizabeth II’s lady-in-waiting for decades and was kept on by King Charles after his mother’s death, resigned.
A busy day ahead in Boston for the Prince and Princess of Wales who will visit Greentown Labs to learn more about what the city is doing to combat climate change and Roca where they’ll meet leaders working to help at risk young people at the centre of urban violence.

Following Ms. Fulani’s accusations on Twitter, Buckingham Palace responded by stating that it takes the incident “very seriously” and that Lady Susan Hussey had extended a “deep regret” for her remarks.
Her departure from the Royal household brings to an end a six-decade career that saw her rise to the position of one of Queen Elizabeth II’s closest confidantes. Because of how important her role was, she even got a small cameo in Netflix’s The Crown.
In 1960, around the time Her Late Majesty gave birth to her third child, Prince Andrew, Lady Susan, now 83, was hired by The Firm to assist with responding to correspondence addressed to the Royal household, according to Tatler.

She is the widow of former BBC Chairman Marmaduke Hussey, who passed away in 2006, and the youngest daughter of the 12th Earl of Waldegrave. She quickly earned the title of one of the late Queen’s “Head Girls” as a lady-in-waiting after taking on her position and growing closer to the monarch.
She earned the moniker “Number One Head Girl” soon after as she continued to assist the Queen. Lady Susan developed a deep bond with King Charles during her tenure as a trusted advisor to the royal family. He requested her to be the godmother of his oldest son, Prince William, because they were so close.
