Uh oh! Prince William's in trouble with Duchess Catherine for his motorbike antics

The Duchess is not amused!

By Alex Lilly
They say boys will be boys and it appears that saying doesn't exclude the future King of England!
On Wednesday, Prince William visited the Isle of Man for the annual TT Motorbike Races and met with support staff, volunteers and members of the local community. He also had the chance to sit on a handbuilt Norton SG7, but luckily it wasn't moving otherwise he could have been in a spot of trouble with his wife!
The Duke of Cambridge revealed that Duchess Catherine was not too pleased about his trip. Which is fair enough seeing as the course is 38 miles long, notorious for its difficulty and danger and on top of that, two people have been killed during the event.
Whilst chatting with Laurence Skelly, the Isle of Man government's minister for enterprise, William said, "When I said I was going to the Isle of Man for an official visit she said, 'Really?'"
Tut tut Your Highness!
Don't let Catherine find out!
The Duke of Cambridge is quite the rev head and has been a longtime fan of motorcycles; he passed his test first tiime at the age of 19 and even had his own worth an estimated £15,000 (AU$26,000). But since he became a dad, Prince William hasn't been as much of a daredevil.
"I'm a father of three, I have to tone it down," he confessed.
Though the Duke did say it hasn't been an easy adjustment.
"I miss the big trips, for me biking was always about being with everybody else."
The Duke is swapping bikes for babies.
Triple World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea told Hello Magazine had the chance to chat all things motorbikes during his MBE ceremony in November last year.
"I know he's a bit of a motorcycle fan himself," Rea said.
"We talked about his bikes and the fact that he has put it on the back-burner a little bit because of his children now."
Back when George was just a baby, William couldn't resist getting out on the road and his wife wasn't happy about it then either!
During a visit to Scotland back in 2015, Catherine told a well-wisher, "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 George off it."
Will George follow in his dad's revhead antics?
