Prince Harry leaves a thank you present for air steward after taking flight – a copy of his tell-all memoir Spare
The Duke of Sussex left a thoughtful gift for a flight attendant on a flight to the US – a copy of his tell-all memoir, Spare.
Tiktoker and flight attendant Holden Pattern shared a picture of a beaming Prince Harry on a American Airlines plane on Friday and revealed that he had been gifted a copy of the Duke’s book, which was released in January.
Prince Harry had been on a whirlwind visit to the UK to give evidence in the Mirror phone hacking trial, where he faced cross-examination after becoming the first royal to take the stand since the 1890s.
The Duke of Sussex, 38, did not take time during the visit to see his family, who were less than half a mile from where he was staying, and is unlikely to see them at the King’s upcoming birthday celebrations, to which it is believed he has not been invited.
Mr Pattern, a pilot and travel influencer, said he had ‘just found this [the book] in my luggage that a passenger gave me,’ and referred to Prince Harry as a ‘passenger prince’.

Prince Harry arrived in the UK on Sunday after spending his daughter Lilibet’s birthday with her, earning a rebuke from the judge for not being present on the first day of his evidence against the Mirror Newspaper Group.
He came to the UK to give evidence across two days as part of his lawsuit against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) over claims its journalists used hacking, ‘blagging’ and other illegal means of deception to write 140 articles published between 1996 and 2010.

The duke appeared close to tears on Wednesday as he finished his historic day and a half of answering questions, which saw him become the first royal in more than a century to testify in court.
During a turbulent final few hours in the witness box, the duke volunteered details of his chequered love life, including a trip to a strip club.
MGN is contesting Harry’s claims and has either denied or not admitted that articles about Harry being examined at the trial involved phone hacking or unlawful activity.
The Prince is said to have landed in California on Thursday evening, meaning that he will have left Britain around lunchtime on the same day – the same dash he took after King Charles’s Coronation last month.
He stayed at Frogmore Cottage for three nights, according to the Telegraph, but it is expected to be his last visit to the home he once shared with his wife because his father has evicted him from the early summer.
