Royal commentators expressed “concern” for Prince William after he completed an adrenaline-filled activity. The Duke of Cambridge had visited Knockhill Circuit in Scotland to test drive an Extreme E pure-electric off-road racing car. Royally Obsessed podcast host Rachel Bowie explained why she had felt “nervous” for the royal.
Ms Bowie told listeners: “He actually goes in the sustainable motorcars on a speedway.
“My immediate concern was – is it cool for the future king to go in a race car and drive?
“I was nervous. That seems like one of the more dangerous things they could have done.
“I just get anxious about motor racing.”
