Prince Charles: "I hate motorbikes"

Heir to the throne voices concerns over sons' safety on two wheels

THE PRINCE of Wales has spoken of his concerns for his sons' safety on two wheels, saying he "hates motorbikes."

Speaking to members of the armed forces at a recent reception at St. James' Palace, Prince Charles voiced concerns over the dangers of motorcycles.

His sons, Prince William, 28, and Prince Harry, 26, are both keen motorcyclists who both ride motorcycles on the road.

"I always worry about them," said Prince Charles. "It's about other cars not being able to see you. I'm always telling my sons that."

Talking to another group at the reception, Charles said: 'I hate motorbikes. My sons are interested in them. I can't ever get my balance on them."
