British royals Kate Middleton and Prince William tried to fly incognito from Australia, after their three week long royal tour. Apparently, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge used alias Mr and Mrs Jones in an attempt to have a low-key departure on Qantas Airways.
However, they failed to camouflage their identity when they booked the entire first class section of Qantas and checked in 90 bags as luggage.
The luggage was much lesser when they arrived for their Australian-New Zealand tour. The royal couple was presented with an array of gifts during their tour and this probably augmented the luggage load.
Middleton and Prince William also made Prince George's booking under the name of Baby Jones.
"It was funny that they used such common British names. Even Prince George was Baby Jones. But it did seem a bit daft as everyone knew it was them." Daily Mail quoted a source from The Sun.
However, this is not the first time that the royal couple has used common British name to hide their identity from the public.
In 2009, they used pennames Mr and Mrs Smith while booking a holiday home in Cornwall for Prince William's 27th birthday.
Interestingly, it is not only the royals who in wake to avoid public glare have used fake names. Fergie reportedly uses name Penny Lane, from the famous Beatles song meanwhile Kate Beckinsale's alias is Sigourney Beaver, and Lindsay Lohan does her hotel or flight bookings under the name of Bella Lovelace.
Kim Kardashian is one of the few celebrities who use Disney character Princess Jasmine while checking into a hotel. Also Paris Hilton uses name Tinkerbell to hide her identity.
