Prince William has showcased his love for eco-friendly transportation after being spotted zipping around Windsor Castle on an electric scooter.

In a viral TikTok video, the cool Prince, who will be spending most of his time this summer with the kids, can be seen navigating the castle grounds wearing some sleek black sunglasses and a casual chic ensemble of black trousers, trainers with a white sole, topped off with what seems to be a snuggly blue jumper over a crisp white shirt.

According to insiders, this isn't just a one-off joyride - our future King, who was praised by Taylor Swift's boyfriend on his parenting duties, purportedly makes regular use of the speedy little vehicle to shuttle between Windsor Castle and his residence at Adelaide Cottage, staying true to his commitment to environmental consciousness.

As one source told The Sun: "It just makes sense. He whizzes up to the castle when he needs to see the King." The insider added, "It's a two or three-mile round trip from his family home at Adelaide Cottage to Windsor Castle so it's easier by scooter than car or walking," reports the Express.

Royal watchers were left delighted by the glimpse of Prince William's eco-considerate habits and took to social media to share their enthusiasm.

One impressed fan wrote on Twitter: "F******* coolest dude/prince ever.. hope this continues well into his reign. So sorry about your elections.. from an outsider looking in, absolutely shocking."

Another fan cheered him on, entertainingly commenting, "[laughing emoji] Go Wills!"

A third admirer perfectly encapsulated the sentiment, declaring: "He is so normal [heart emoji]". A fan gushed over the royal's playful side, saying: "Love this! as I was on a bouncy castle yesterday, school sports day I was not missing out."

E-scooters have zoomed into popularity lately, with some online steals as cheap as £20, though the swankier models can set you back a whopping £6,000.

Remember, in Blighty, it's a no-go to whizz private e-scooters on public roads, unless you're part of the trial rental scheme but they're all good on private turf if you've got the landowner's thumbs up, just like Wills.

If you're caught illegally riding one, you could be slapped with a £300 fine, six points on your licence, and even face criminal charges or have your scooter confiscated.

The exact details of Prince William's scooter are still under wraps. His late granny, Queen Elizabeth, was also known for her rides around the massive estate, albeit in a golf buggy.

The Windsor Estate isn't just home to Adelaide Cottage and Windsor Castle; it also houses Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's old UK pad, Frogmore Cottage, Prince Andrew's digs at Royal Lodge, and the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh's spot, Bagshot Park.
