Spotted: Prince William rides a Ducati 1198S

Heir to the throne turns up to sports event on Ducati Superbike

Prince William - replete with sponsor-clad leathers

PRINCE WILLIAM turned up in style to a play in a polo match at Coworth Park club in Ascot, Berkshire, last weekend on his new Ducati 1198S.

The future King of England rode into the event on the £14,500 superbike, wearing bespoke leathers, smothered in race-style sponsor logos. William was also wearing a full-face helmet with a black visor. Streethawk stuff indeed.

Last year the Prince, who's an avid motorcycle fan, rode with brother Harry in a charity motorcycle event across Africa.

Nice bit of free publicity for Ducati, eh?
