Good for them, but we all know that certain papers will find something negative to say, unless......

Sometimes I'm afraid my English is not good. From the website of The Sun via this link:

It's a BLT for HRH Charles

PRINCE Charles is expanding his posh
nosh empire - selling upmarket sarnies



I must confess I have no idea what this is talking about? BLT? posh nosh empire? Sarnies?

BLT = Bacon, Lettuce, Tomatoe.
Sarnies = Sandwiches
Posh Nosh = upper class/expensive food

Prince Charles hires a lavish yacht to cut costs
February 8

The Prince of Wales has hired one of the world's most expensive private yachts to sail round the Caribbean - as a cost-cutting measure.
The 2,000-ton Leander, decorated in the style of a faded English country home, has been leased to the Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall for the 10-day trip next month. Clarence House has negotiated a reduced rate on the usual £40,000-a-day fee.

I think it would be much more nice to book a cabin on the yacht and join the couple on their tour to the Caribbean!

Depending on which plane it is, of course, but normally long distance planes have an extra business department in the front of the plane and and some more business class seats ("Club World") in front of the economy seats in the back, so I guess the Royal entourage booked all seats in the front compartment to seat them including the bodyguards. Probably BA will send in addition some of their security people on board this flight.

Plus extra baggage and cabin checks, maybe even an additional security check at the gate.

But there was a flight princess Mary of Denmark took with her son prince Christian from Hobart to Melbourne I think it was - in an budget airline with only her bodyguard as security. But of course nobody had known about her using this plane beforehand, so it was a different situation as probably there is only one BA flight to Trinidad on that time of that day as stated in the media.
