The Duke of Sussex is being photographed on Friday by another passenger aboard a commercial flight from London to Tokyo
The Duke of Sussex flew to and from Japan for the Rugby World Cup final on a commercial aircraft, which emerged today.
Prince Harry was in premium economy on his Nippon Airways flight from Tokyo Haneda Airport to London Heathrow on Sunday morning after the race.
The 35-year-old royal was noticed by passengers when he flew to Japan on Friday and left his wife Meghan and their five-month-old son Archie at home in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, Berkshire.
An Irish drag queen, called Victoria Secret, posted a photo of him smiling on the plane on Friday, with the title: & # 39; Prince Harry, oh my god. & # 39;
She tweeted: & Sitting in front of Prince Harry on our flight to Tokyo … and I can confirm that he is a beauty. Almost fell off my seat when he came aboard.
& # 39; 100 percent tell the truth. Shook. There is also a ton of rugby beauts on board. Every flight after this will disappoint me. & # 39;
Another witness told MailOnline that they were on board the return flight that departed from Japan around 11 am on Sunday, and that Harry was in a premium economy.
The commercial flights follow the harmful line over the duke and duchess and make four private jet journeys in 11 days, despite campaigning on environmental issues.

Harry joined the Japanese crown prince Akishino in the stands for the final on Saturday at Yokohama Stadium, where England lost 32-12 to South Africa.
The duke praised the English team for an & # 39; excellent job & # 39; and urged them to keep their heads up after their dreams of victory ended in disappointment.
& # 39; Tonight was not the night of England, & # 39; said the duke in a message on Sussex Royal's Instagram account.
& # 39; But the entire nation is incredibly proud of what @EnglandRugby has achieved in recent months & # 39 ;, he added.
& # 39; Keep your head up guys, you have done an excellent job and we could not have asked for anything more from you. & # 39;
Harry also congratulated the Springboks on their victory and said he couldn't think of a nation that deserves more.

After the game, he saw South African players shake hands in the dressing room.
& # 39; For all of South Africa – rugby unites all of us in more ways than we can imagine, and tonight I have no doubt it will unite all of you, & # 39; he said.
Before the game, the duke said the tournament & # 39; incredible & # 39; and predicted that the final would be a & # 39; fantastic game & # 39; would be.
In a video shared by the official Rugby World Cup Twitter account, Harry said: & May the best team win. I think the competition will end as it started, which is spectacular. & # 39;
He added: & # 39; The way they (Japan) have organized this entire competition is incredible. I think the way they respect each other, the way they respected the game and the way they respected the traveling teams is typically Japanese. & # 39;
Earlier, Harry warmed up for the final during a training session for potential Japanese paralympians – and discovered that one or two of them took root for the English opponents.

& # 39; I'll talk to you later & # 39 ;, Harry joked. & # 39; You may not be selected for the Paralympics! & # 39;
Harry and Meghan were criticized in August after taking four private jet journeys in 11 days to and from Nice and Ibiza, instead of opting for commercial flights.
Singer Sir Elton John defended the royal family at the time and said he had given them a flight to Nice last month to maintain a high level of much needed protection.
The duke later insisted on launching a new sustainable travel initiative in Amsterdam that he occasionally flew by private jet to keep his family safe.
In a question and answer session after his speech, Harry said: & I came here with a commercial. I spend 99 percent of my life traveling the world by commercial. & # 39;
