British MotoGP: When Harry met Nicky

Published: 26 July 2009

MCN captured the moment when Prince Harry smiled and chatted with a relaxed Nicky Hayden on the MotoGP pitwall.

Ducati rider Hayden sprinted out of his garage when he saw Prince Harry walking towards him and asked for a photo with the prince, who rides a Triumph Daytona 675.

The pair posed and chatted for a few minutes. American Hayden asked him what he thought of the racing, and his hopes for the race – to which Harry replied he hoped it was a dry one.

Prince Harry has a hospitality suit at Donington Park for the race.
