Excited passengers quickly took to Twitter to document their encounter with the Duke of Cambridge

Apparently you don’t need to be invited to exclusive masquerade ball parties to rub shoulders with royalty.

Prince William stunned U.S. travelers this week when he boarded a commuter flight from LaGuardia Airport in New York to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in DC to meet U.S. President Barack Obama.

Excited passengers quickly took to social media sites to document their brush with the Duke of Cambridge, who is the second in line to succeed Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, arrived in New York on Sunday as part of a three-day visit to the United States. Their encounter with pop stars Beyonce and Jay Z during the Brooklyn Nets vs. Cleveland Cavalier NBA game on Monday has already created a media frenzy.

This is not the first time that Prince Harry surprised American travelers. He also opted for a cheaper return flight from Memphis earlier in May and sat in a coach class on an American Airlines flight.
