A Shock for the Royals On Their Amsterdam Trip
As news of the Meghan Markel’s pregnancy circles the internet, Meghan Markle has become the center of attention around the world yet again. However, that is not the shock we are referring to at this moment.
While the news of the coming child has brought immense happiness and joy to the royal couple, recently unlocked details of their trip to Amsterdam have focused attention to the scary Amsterdam-bound flight that Prince Harry and Meghan had to take back in September.
Apparently, as the couple were on their way via a private jet to an exclusive party in Amsterdam, their fight was intensely disturbed as it got hit by a jolt of lightening.
Aboard the Dassault Falcon 7X
We’re not sure whether it was the sturdiness of the aircraft or the luck of the royals, but we are more inclined to believe the former as the private jet had a value of around $52 million, fit enough to provide people as important as the royals with the stability they need to complete their journeys around the world without fault.
According to reports, the lightening jolt which struck the nose cone of the jet sent 30 million volts at the least into the fuselage. Had the impact been a few inches away, it could’ve effectively destroyed the equipment for radar navigation that is vital to the operation of the plane.
The jet was hired by the royals to provide them a return trip to Amsterdam at a total cost of around $26K. Thankfully, even with the lightening scare, the couple reached the country’s Schiphol airport without any harm. What followed was an evening full of networking as the couple spent their time at Soho House club, an exclusive club in the country, socializing with the likes of Eddie Redmayne and Jenna Coleman, to name a few.
No Taxpayer Money
If you are wondering about the bill and who is paying for all of these luxurious trips, then rest assured that the royals did not use taxpayer funds to sponsor their trip. Instead, they spent from their private wealth.
The party at the Soho House club was organized by its founder Nick Jones, and it goes without saying that Prince Harry and Meghan looked absolutely phenomenal at the event, not only because of what they wore, but also by the way they carried themselves.
They are royalty, after all. While socializing with everyone at the party did not bother them at all, when it came to going around the city’s red-light district as part of a conducted walking tour, the royals politely declined. They also did not join the party on the canal boat trip.
Considering the sensitivity of air travel and the safety procedures which must be conducted in order to ensure that planes are in perfect flying condition, the Dassault Falcon 7X which was carrying the royals had to be grounded for a good 9-day period as repairs and other safety checks were made. After a thorough assessment of the plane’s fitness, it was allowed to fly again. Among these repairs is obviously a new nose cone that has replaced the old one due to all the damage.
Of course, since the aircraft that had brought the royals to Amsterdam could not make the trip back, a replacement for the same had to be sent by the jet company. Because a replacement was readily arranged, the Duke and Duchess were able to return home as scheduled on the 23rd of September, and officially resumed their duties the very next day by attending an event for awards distribution at the Loughborough University.
The entire event has not been publicized as much as it should have been, considering the fact that the royals experienced quite a shock mid-air. The staff members who are employed at the Schiphol Jet Center have reportedly refused to comment about the incident altogether, while Buckingham Palace has straightforwardly declined to give a comment on the matter.
As for the staff employed at the London Oxford Airport, where the royals initially took off for Amsterdam, they apparently did not even know that Prince Harry and Meghan were flying out to Amsterdam, although that could be due to the speculated belief that the royals were driven directly to their jet so that they may avoid being seen by anyone.
