Anderson Cooper talks about being on same DC to NYC shuttle flight as Britain’s Prince William
Anderson Cooper sure has an eventful life.
Last week he was briefly hospitalized and had his appendix removed and this week he ends up on the same flight as Prince William.
As we all well know, the Prince and his wife Kate are on a US visit and after William met with President Obama at The White House Monday, the future King of England took an afternoon US air shuttle flight back to New York City.
On that same flight was CNN’s Silver Fox.
“There was this kind of buzz and excitement to see this guy come on the aircraft,’ Anderson said on his show last night. ‘It’s like seeing a rare gazelle or something.’
Cooper said all the passengers were moved from the front area of the plane to make room for the royal passenger.
‘I was in row 26 – all the way in the back,’ he said. ‘I think it surprised everyone on the aircraft that he was flying commercial and had a relatively small entourage.’
But Cooper did not have any interaction with William.
‘I saw like the back of his head,’ he said.
