Royal Family, United Kingdom
Prince William and Kate Middleton have toured several world tours in recent years, with official visits to New Zealand, Australia, India, Bhutan, and Canada. In all travels, the royal family is accompanied by a doctor of the Royal Navy and a small suite of 10-20 people. At the same time, two royals, such as Prince Charles and the queen or Prince Charles and Prince William, cannot fly in the same plane. This is done for the greater safety of the crown. Prince William can only be on the same plane as Prince George until he turns 12. Buckingham Palace contacts the chefs in the countries where the monarch is heading and stipulates the menu on the eve of the trip. One of the obligatory conditions: dishes should have a minimum of seasonings so that the breath of the monarchs remained fresh. By the way, British monarchs on trips do not eat seafood – they are the easiest to poison.
Donald Trump, USA
There is a “Bort number one” that transports the first persons of the state in each country. In the U.S., it’s a Boeing VC-25A. “Board number one” has a presidential office and a reception room for guests, and the presidential apartments are in the nose of the ship. The presidential liner can comfortably accommodate more than 100 people. Rumor has it that the current American leader always keeps a ketchup bottle so that anywhere you can serve the president his favorite dish – steak with ketchup. The President of America is always accompanied by an impressive number of bodyguards (sometimes they occupy an entire hotel at the destination), and he moves only in an armored car.
Salman bin Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdurrahman Al Saud, King of Saudi Arabia
The King of Saudi Arabia likes to travel on a grand scale: in March this year, he made a tour of Asia, in which he was accompanied by 1,500 people retinue. The king was traveling on 36 aircraft with 459 tons of luggage, two Mercedes S600 limousines, and two gold-plated escalators used as aircraft ladders. More than 100 bodyguards were responsible for the king’s safety. The monarch is used to luxury – in any hotel for him spread expensive Arabic carpets, which carry him around the world.
Pope Francis, Vatican City
The Pope always travels accompanied by officials from the Vatican and his own press office. On any trip, Pope Francis takes a small bag with him, in which he carries a liturgical book with the texts of prayers (breviarium), a notebook with a schedule of upcoming meetings, a book for reading, and a book for reading razor. Even though the Pope is the head of the Catholic Church, he travels modestly – only rents a regular passenger airliner from the airline Alitalia.
Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan of Brunei
The first person of Brunei is one of the wealthiest people on the planet. Hassanal Bolkiah pilots his aircraft while traveling in a personal Boeing 747-400. The finish of the liner cost the sultan $120 million. Bolkiah carries with him at least 400 people retinue.
Mohammed VI, King of Morocco
The King of Morocco travels around the country in a Mercedes, accompanied by a motorcade of guards. For foreign trips, uses a personal Boeing 747 with a cinema and billiards on board. All year-round, in 12 royal palaces across the country, everything is ready for the owner’s arrival. Regardless of the weather, they maintain a temperature of 17 degrees. Monarch owns an impressive collection of cars, including Aston Martin, Maybach, Rolls-Royce, and Ferrari, which he likes to use for their intended purpose and drives them near his residences.
