The royal photographer revealed that Will's habit of riding a motorbike "frightened the life out of" his grandmother. He said: ”I think it frightens the life out of people at Buckingham Palace and almost certainly, the Queen too. It is a strange thing.
"His mother was constantly fleeing from the paparazzi, who were on motorbikes.
“Now her son is using a motorbike for the same sort of reasons."
The Duke of Cambridge loves motorcycles and says he's had a "passion for motorbikes" since he was "very small."
The royal said that part of the appeal of the hobby was the anonymity that came with riding around with his face obscured by his helmet.

Apparently, however, Queen Elizabeth was never a fan of Prince William’s hobby.
The Queen has a lot of say over what the other members of the royal family can do with their lives-including, in some cases, who they can marry.
Even the Queen can't control everything though, and apparently that includes royal hobbies.
Prince William spoke fondly about his love for bikes, saying: "I don't know what it is about bikes, but I've always had a passion for motorbikes ever since I was very small.
