PRINCE WILLIAM AND KATE MIDDLETON RELAUNCH CHARITY, FLY BUDGET AGAIN

Kate Middleton and Prince William are officially changing the name of the charity they shared with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The Fab 4 announced their official split earlier this year, saying they were opting to take "divergent paths" with their charities. The unified charitable arm was previously known as The Royal Foundation when it was founded in 2009 by William, Kate and Harry. Meghan joined after marrying Harry in May of 2018, and the name was changed to The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Now, it has been changed to The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, according to documents published by Companies House.

In July, Meghan and Harry announced the creation of Sussex Royal: The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"Both couples will continue to work together on projects in the future, including on The Foundation's mental health program, Heads Together," the palace said in a statement earlier this year.

Sources tell People that because of William's "constitutional obligations" as heir to the throne, he has "less flexibility" in charity choices. New dad Harry "is now married, has started a family and is not constitutionally bound. It is a natural progression."

Also, stylistically their approaches are reportedly different, with the Cambridges taking a "top-level approach" and the Sussexes getting more involved on the ground.

BUDGET

Meanwhile, Kate and William boarded another budget plane to return from their trip to the Scottish Highlands with their three children. They flew there on a budget airline, in what many are seeing as a response to the blowback Meghan and Harry got for flying around Europe on four private jets in just 11 days recent weeks while simultaneously demanding eco-reform.

Royal author Phil Dampier has previously said: "The contrast between William, Kate and family travelling on a cheap budget flight to Scotland and Harry and Meghan using private jets couldn't be starker.
