Shakey And William Resize2

Self confessed motorcycle fan His Royal Highness Prince William the Duke of Cambridge, was an enthusiastic visitor to Motorcycle Live at the NEC Birmingham today (Saturday).

HRH chatted to three time MCE BSB champion and highest all time race winner Shane 'Shakey' Byrne as he visited the Show before looking at the latest models on display.

Byrne said: "It was an honour and a pleasure to meet a member of the Royal Family and it was really special for me, especially as he wanted to talk to me about motorcycling and racing. It has been a special day as I am just a normal guy so to meet HRH was fantastic and it is awesome that a member of our Royal Family is so genuinely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about motorcycling."
