Prince Harry `shuns royal treatment for budget airline`

London: It may not be a royal move, but Prince Harry shunned his usual VIP treatment and opted to fly back from Queen`s eldest granddaughter Zara Phillips` wedding in Scotland with a budget airline, a media report said.

The third-in-line to the British throne is understood to have ignored more luxurious modes of transport and instead paid a knock down fare to travel from Scotland with easyJet, `The Daily Telegraph` reported.

In fact, speculation is there that the 26-year-old Prince had paid the bargain price of just 16.50 pounds for the hour-long easyJet flight from Edinburgh to London, the British newspaper said.

Friends of the England rugby captain and Zara`s groom, Mike Tindall, has described the wedding as "an incredible day" which was followed by an "amazing party".

Olly Barkley, the England fly-half, tweeted: "Sweeeeeet weekend and a wedding to tell the kids about. Harry coming back on easyJet was comfortably the highlight of the weekend."

Zara and Mike were married at a relatively low-key ceremony on Saturday in what was the second royal wedding in just three months.

The couple exchanged vows at Canongate Kirk on Edinburgh`s Royal Mile, and the royal party included the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

A spokeswoman for easyJet said she did not doubt that "some of the guests enjoyed an easy and affordable flight" with the airline.
