The Sussexes may have taken a step away from royalty, but that certainly doesn't mean they've become strangers to luxury.

According to the MailOnline, Harry and Meghan opt to fly in a lavish 12-seater Cessna jet when they choose to fly privately.

The Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign plane is decked out with state-of-the-art interiors, including spacious bathrooms, mood lighting, comfortable leather seats, and on-board WiFi with executive desks.

The Sussexes likely chose the fly via private jet for ease and comfort given it was their children's first long-haul flight to the UK.

According to Liberty Jet, Harry and Meghan's private jet currently retails for around $6.5million (£5.2million), and that's before a pilot is hired! It is not known whether they have purchased it themselves or if they hire it for their transatlantic journeys.
