Princes slammed over charity motorcycle ride

Royal brothers under fire after donating minimum amount to African charity

PRINCES WILLIAM and Harry have come under fire after the two royals managed to raise just £1,500 each for their motorbike charity ride - Enduro Africa.

The sum has come under fire after the rest of the riders taking part in the motorcycle adventure managed to raise an average of £3,500 each. A representative for William and Harry confirmed the amount, but insisted the Princes had raised the profile of the charity event. He said to the Mirror newspaper:

“The princes both donated the minimum required to take part but their presence on the ride, as with their support of other charities, raised its profile and we expect more riders to be taking part next year, so it raises more money indirectly.”

Did the Princes do enough for the trip, or was it just a low-cost jaunt for the royals and their entourage of security staff?
