Prince William

Prince William ‘breaks the internet’ by riding electric scooter around Windsor Castle

Embracing a greener mode of transport…

The latest Prince William news has seen the royal become the talk of social media after a clip surfaced showing him zipping around Windsor Castle on an electric scooter.

The video, said to have been captured on July 4, appears to show the Prince of Wales embracing a greener mode of transportation within the vast royal estate.

Prince William news: He’s just a scooter boy!

Dressed casually in a blue jumper, white shirt and black trousers, and donning stylish sunglasses, the future King was filmed navigating the castle grounds on his scooter.

According to an insider who spoke to The Sun in 2023: “It just makes sense. He whizzes up to the castle when he needs to see the King. It’s a two or three-mile round trip from his family home at ­Adelaide Cottage to Windsor Castle so it’s easier by scooter than car or walking.”

The electric scooter reportedly travels up to 10mph. This makes it a perfect choice for quick trips across the 655-acre Windsor estate. However, the specific make and model is unknown.

William’s shift towards more environmentally friendly transportation options may also reflect the influence of his family.

The Prince of Wales has long been a fan of two-wheeled vehicles. Royal fans are likely familiar with the Ducail which he famously rode on the eve of his wedding to wife Kate.

However, the Princess of Wales voiced concerns over his motorbike’s safety. This may have led to his purchase of the electric scooter.

Prince William caring for Kate

Meanwhile, Prince William has reportedly been “caring” for his wife Kate as she faces cancer treatment.

The Princess of Wales announced in March that she was undergoing chemotherapy after doctors had discovered evidence of cancer.

In an interview with Bella magazine last month, an insider shared how William was supporting his wife behind the scenes.

“William has been pampering her non-stop, making sure she’s got everything she possibly needs and keeping her spirits up with funny stories and jokes whenever they have down time. He will do anything for her,” the insider shared.

The couple have reportedly been navigating the difficult time by spending time together.

“They’ve been binge-watching TV series and movies. He brings her breakfast in bed most days, gives her foot rubs and neck massages and makes sure she has everything she needs, that she’s staying super hydrated and getting plenty of sleep and rest.”
