Royal duty was a pleasure for Prince William when he flew to the Isle of Man on the 6th of June 2018, reported E-Online.com.

The Prince attended the International Isle of Man TT Race in his official capacity as a representative of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

The International Isle of Man TT is an annual motorcycle sports event that started in 1907 and is said to be one of the most dangerous racing events in the world.

The Prince, who is known to be a motorcycle aficionado was in his element rubbing shoulders with competitors, race officials, support staff, and volunteers.

The Prince was his usual dapper self in a classic navy suit and a pair of sunglasses, though most of the participants and spectators were dressed in a casual fashion.

"He's still riding it. It always fills me with horror when he goes out on it‎. I'm terrified. Hopefully, I'm going to keep [Prince] George off it"

Duchess of Cambridge, E Online.com, 6th of June 2018.

He couldn't hide his enthusiasm when he was shown the new zero-emission motorcycles, and a fan posted images on Twitter.

William's passion for bikes is not shared by Duchess Kate who has stated that she finds them frightening and dangerous, and she would not have been impressed to see him try out a mean-machine Breitling racing model at the Isle of Man.

The Prince is the proud owner of a classic Ducati, but it is unlikely that he will be initiating his son George in the pleasures of motorbike riding or racing.

The Duchess has made it very clear that in this instance, Prince George will not be following in his father's footsteps.
