Prince William races Extreme E electric car around Fife circuit and wrecks a barrier in the process

Prince William left his Royal troubles behind briefly yesterday when he took an electric car for a high-speed spin around a race track.

He grinned as he donned a helmet and fireproof racesuit before slipping behind the wheel of the Extreme E electric vehicle at the Knockhill circuit in Fife, part of a programme of visits to innovative projects north of the border aimed at tackling climate change.

Later the 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge, a former air ambulance pilot, looked happy and relaxed as he grabbed a pint with members of the emergency services at a rooftop bar near Edinburgh Castle to watch the Scottish Cup Final.

There, he managed to talk about the pressures of lockdown and even made a joke about his family. 

Speaking to a table of first responders, William asked how they had kept in touch with families during lockdown. 

He said: ‘The funny thing is, when I spoke to my family I found it so good to catch up, but then you haven’t anything to catch up on because no one had done anything.’

When one guest said they had not seen their in-laws for a year, William joked: ‘Some people are quite happy they haven’t seen their in-laws for a year.’ 

After laughter, he added: ‘I love my in-laws.’

The Duke, who was on the second day of his Scotland tour, chatted while watching St Johnstone defeat Hibernian 1-0.
