Why royal tradition forbids King Charles and Prince William from traveling together

Published

on

 

King Charles III and his eldest son, Prince William, are forbidden from flying on the same plane together.

It’s a luxury most of us take for granted – hopping on a plane with your mum and dad or kids to go on holidays to faraway lands.

But for the royals, this is another thing they have to carefully think about before boarding.

Royal tradition states that Prince Charles and Prince William should never get on the same plane together, and for quite a sad reason.

Should the plane crash the monarchy would lose its current king and the heir to the throne.

The unofficial rule also applies to Prince William and his five-year-old son, Prince George, who is second in line to the throne.

Prior to the Queen’s death William has flown with his whole family on many occasions, including on royal trips to Canada, Germany and Poland.

It remains to be seen whether he will continue to do so now that Prince George is second in line to the throne.

It’s thought the tradition dates back to the early days of air travel, when flights weren’t deemed as safe.

In the years running up to her death the Queen relaxed the rule.

A royal spokesman said in 2014: “While there is no official rule on this, it is something that the Queen has the final say on.”

Prince William is now first in line to the throne and his children, George, Charlotte and Louis, are second, fourth and fifth.

While Prince Harry is only fifth in line to the throne, tradition dictates that he is not to fly with William.

If something were to happen to Charles and William prior to George turning 18, Harry would be required to serve as king until the young prince turned 18 and came of age.

In recent years the royals plane usage has come under increased scrutiny, as concern about the climate and the emissions heavy nature of air travel becomes greater.

William and Kate have been known to skip private jet usage in favour of commercial airlines.

In 2016 the Duchess of Cambridge boarded a British Airways plane for a flight to Rotterdam on an official trip, while William was spotted on a Ryanair flight to Glasgow the year before.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have evoked the ire of some environmentalists for regularly using a private jet despite their words of concern about the climate crisis.

Nigerian Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has finally spoken out on her alleged affair with Apostle Johnson Suleman.

Suleman, the general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, has been enmeshed in the labyrinth of “sex scandals” in the past years.

In July, the cleric was in the news again after a blog claimed he had affair with a host of Nigerian actresses including Abubakar, Georgina Onuoha, Queen Nwokoye, Shan George, and Vivian Metchie.

Others, according to the blog, include Lilian Bach, Iyabo Ojo, Ruth Kadiri, Mercy Johnson, Chinyere Winifred, Larriet Omo Brish, Ini Edo, Joy Ogbunu, Angela Okorie, and Mary Uranta.

At the time, the report sparked heated reactions on social media, with several of the named actresses dismissing the allegation.

Suleman also debunked the post and described the list as an unrealistic litany of names curated to bring him down.

In a dramatic twist on Sunday, Abubakar took to her Instagram stories to call out Suleman.

The film star claimed she agreed to date him at the time because the cleric told him he had separated from his wife.

“I f*ck up yes. I own my mistakes. But I won’t lie anymore. Nigga said he was separated. I didn’t meet a married man. I met a bizman with three kids. Long story, stay away from liars,” she wrote.

In another post, Abubakar also accused the clergyman of paying blogs monthly to promote lies.

“Every month only you. How do you sleep? You paid off the blogs, only you, God forbid. Look for lies and send it to your bloggers. They need am,” she added.

“But you you you JS. You bought market Sule. Emperor Sule. Allow me rest biko. Don’t fuck with me bro. Dude.”

Abubakar had earlier engaged Shan George in a war of words over the alleged affair involving the cleric.

As of the time of this report, Suleman has not reacted to Abubakar’s claim.
