Biking runs in Royal blood

Published: 21 February 2018

Four princes, four bikes – and proof that biking runs in the royal blood. In the first picture, Prince Albert (he who will become George VI, not to mention subject of The King's Speech) and his younger brother Prince Henry. They're pictured attending college in Cambridge, where they spent a year in 1919-20 studying history, economics and civics.

In the second image, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge (he who will be King) and his younger brother Harry. Known to be agreeable and athletic, notable for their down-to-earth sense of self and humour, and sincere in their love of bikes, all four are models of the motorcycling breed. The bikes are a pair of 2 3/4hp (350cc) Douglas 2 speeders, a Ducati 1198 S Corse SE and a Triumph Daytona 675.

Prince William visits Triumph

And this week the Duke of Cambridge visited Triumph's UK factory in Hinckley.

Prince William viewed Triumph's £6 million paint shop facility and went for a ride on the new 2018 Tiger 1200 XRT.
