    Prince William spent the day watching one of the world’s top motorcycle races yesterday, the Isle of Man TT 2018.

    The Duke of Cambridge has long been a fan of the sport, getting his motorbike license when he was 19, and is reported to own a Ducati Hypermotard.

    But, ahead of the event, it sounds like his wife Kate Middleton wasn’t too impressed by his plans.

    ‘When I said I was going to the Isle of Man for an official visit she said, “Really?” the Duke said at the event.

    The Duchess of Cambridge has previously shared her disdain for the dangerous hobby, telling a member of the public, ‘it always fills me with horror when he goes out on [his bike]!’ in 2015.

    ‘I’m terrified. Hopefully, I’m going to keep George off it,’ she added.

    However, it looks like William doesn’t spend as much time on the bike now that he has three children.

    ‘I’m a father of three, I have to tone it down [now],’ he admitted on Wednesday. ‘I miss the big trips, for me it was always about being with everyone else.’

    We’re sure Kate is much happier for it!
