Prince Harry was just spotted on a regular flight to London and there are photos

Picture it; it's the end of your holiday and you're heading home, full of back-to-work fear.

After what feels like days sitting at the airport gate, you finally shuffle on to your flight and squeeze in to your seat.

You sort your headphones, tuck your bag away and look up - to see Prince Harry chilling a few rows ahead.

That's pretty much what happened to one royal fan who spotted the Prince traveling from Rome to London on a commercial flight last week.

She managed to get a couple of photos of him looking like he's doing his best to avoid being recognised, the poor lad.

A post shared by Harry and Meghan (@harrysmeghan) on

Sharing the snaps online, she said that she was queuing to use the toilet on her flight and saw the royal in the front row.


"As I'm standing there, I look over and see a guy who looks like Prince Harry. And he has a wedding ring on and looks very tired," she wrote.

"The guy next to him looks like security and is glaring at me.

"Finally my brain clicks and I realize, it is Prince Harry on the way back to London from Rome. He was at a polo tournament.

"He politely smiled and said hi when he realized I knew who he was."

Harry thanked the cabin crew before getting off once the plane landed, she said.

He had been in Rome for the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup, a sporting event organised to raise money for young people with HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.

The royal helped to found the Sentebale charity; carrying on his mother's legacy.

Princess Diana helped to raise awareness of HIV during the epidemic of the 1980s.
