A quick internet search for plane tickets from LA to London shows a bargain price of around $700 per ticket, or if you're traveling business class, just north of $2,000. But don't tell members of the British royal family that.
According to documents released on Monday, the former Kate
Middleton and Prince William dropped around $80,000 on their one-way journey
back to London from Los Angeles following their North American tour.
The price tag covered commercial tickets for their
seven-deep entourage -- and while Middleton, William, and a senior adviser got
free upgrades to first class, the business-class tickets cost around $9,000.
The royal duo (plus entourage) headed home on a British
Airways flight. They were later offered 200 pound vouchers on the
airline after the plane's in-flight system broke.
The Royal Family's most expensive trip for 2011 was a trip
taken by the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall through the Middle East,
South Africa, and Tanzania last fall. The trip cost $722,761.55, reports The
From 2011 though 2012, the Royal Family's travel tab
weighed in at $9,500,000 -- all of which were covered by taxpayer funds,
according to The Telegraph.(DailyMail and The Telegraph)
