I take thee, William Pinkerton-Smith

I take thee, William Pinkerton-Smith

Prince William has further endeared himself to New Zealand — a country he visited last week — by allegedly sitting in economy class (avec security team, however) on an Air New Zealand flight from from Auckland to the earthquake-stricken city of Christchurch, reports the Telegraph. Predictably, the airline isn’t talking. Our favourite part of the story? William’s alleged alias: Mr. Pinkerton-Smith.

Kiwis, for their part, were already won over. An earlier New Zealand Herald editorial raved:
“The day has long gone when a royal visitor can win affection in this corner of the realm simply by coming here, though even that was becoming a rare gesture until Prince William came of age. In him we have met a future king who knows when he should be here and, even more important, seems comfortable when he is here.”
