The Dukes of Sussex used a private plane from a company called "Uber for Billionaires" during their secret six-day trip to Ibiza that could have cost 22,000 euros on flights alone. Prince Henry, 34, and Meghan, who turned 38 on August 4, flew to Ibiza on 6 August and stayed in a luxury private villa before returning to the UK on Monday.
Flight records discovered by MailOnline reveal for the first time how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their son Archie secretly traveled for their break in a private villa on the island. On Tuesday, August 6, the first day of his secret vacation, the only private plane that traveled to Ibiza from Farnborough VIP Airport in Hampshire was a Gulfstream 200, which can accommodate up to 19 people, which departed at 7.49am and landed on the Balearic Islands to the Balearic Islands 10.49 a.m. local time. Six days later, on Monday this week, a nine-seat Cessna 500 XL, owned by NetJets, left Ibiza at 10.14am local time, and landed in Farnborough at 11.20am and is believed to have taken the dukes and their son,

Commentator Piers Morgan shared an article about the trip and wrote, "Saving the planet, a jet private at a time." There are also critastos for the lack of transparency that surrounded the trip, with royal spokesmen refusing to reveal how much it cost taxpayers,
A source on the island told MailOnline that the royals landed last week last week with several taxpayer-funded Met Police bodyguards, and that five nearby security forces protection officers Spaniards joined those escorting their private villa,
NetJets is linked to Nacho Figueras, an Argentine sportsman known as the "David Beckham of polo", a great friend of Henry of England. The company has 750 charter aircraft worldwide and boasts of offering an "unmatched experience" to wealthy customers. Benefits include personalized dining menus and the option to bring pets in the cabin.
No images of the visit of Markle and her husband, who stayed in a private villa away from the spotlight sandins, have not yet transcended. THE COUNTRY reported last Wednesday that the dukes traveled with a large group of bodyguards and the collaboration of the Spanish authorities was not necessary to ensure the safety of the couple and their son.
