This Is The Private Jet Used By England’s New King – King Charles III

King Charles III has only been king for a few days, but he’s already making the most of this new role in the monarch as he boards his private jet to attend business in Northern Ireland. But what jet does the new King of England use to travel? Thanks to photos being taken at the airport he flew from, we’ve been able to identify that the place the royals use to fly is an Embraer private jet.

Previously known as the Prince of Wales, King Charles III has for a long time enjoyed the biproducts of being in the monarchy. Large estates, amazing food, fast cars, and even faster jets. He was only four when his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II, became queen, and has since amassed a collection of cars that isn’t far from his mother’s. For example, he arrived at Buckingham Palace in a Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, a car that was owned also by his mother.

But his choice of jet is even more comfortable than the Rolls-Royce, being a Embraer Legacy 600 with a registration number G-LEGC. It’s actually owned by Luxaviation United Kingdom, and has space and the luxuries for 13 passengers along with two crew members. It also has space for six passengers to sleep in divine comfort.

Powered by twin Rolls-Royce engines, it can hit speeds of 0.69 Mach, or 529 mph, and has a range of 3,200 nautical miles.

His first flight saw him travel to London after the passing of his mother, and now he’s used it to travel to Belfast, Northern Ireland to meet the representatives of the region’s political parties. Again, he used the same Rolls-Royce Phantom VI to get to the jet, and was met by a BMW 7-Series on the other end.

It’s fair to say, the monarchy travel in style.
