Kate Middleton is nearing her due date but that doesn’t mean that she can’t travel in style. Proving that travelling via helicopter is the only way to get around the Duchess of Cambridge was spotted with hubby Prince William grabbing a free ride back to London from pal Simon Oliphant-Hope.

KATE MIDDLETON'S PRE-BIRTH ANTIQUES SHOPPING SPREE

The Royal couple, who were barely recognised by fellow flyers as they took off in the bright orange McDonnell Douglas helicopter from their home in North Wales with dog Lupo, travelled 200 miles to an aerodrome just outside of London in Denham, Buckinghamshire.

Both Kate and Wills were dressed casually with Kate opting for a dark jacket and top with jeans and flat shoes. The Duchess also wore her hair in a soft bun while PW opted for dark jeans, a cornflower coloured sweater and light blue shirt.

The arrival was photographed by surprised guests who had no idea of the VIPs on-board, initially not even realising they had taken pics of the Royal couple until a few days later.
