The Duke of Cambridge takes in some racing at the Isle of Man TT

Dan Kneen, representing Tyco BMW passed away a few days ago at the Superbike qualifying and just days later; the Isle of Man TT saw the death of newcomer Adam Lyon during the SuperSport race.

Prince William jumped at the chance to sit on the handbuilt Norton SG7, but joked: 'I'm a father-of-three.

He added: 'I miss the big trips, for me biking was always about being with everybody else'.

William, dressed in a suit and sunglasses, was treated to lovely sunny weather as watched the final stages of the TT Supersport Race 2 where the 600cc bikes can reach up to 180mph. He also appreciates a good motorsport contest, which is what led The Duke to bunk off to the Isle of Man for parts of the 2018 race.

Motorcycle enthusiast Prince William flew to the Isle of Man for one of the world's top races on Wednesday.
