Every parent eventually has to compromise and make sacrifices for their children, and Prince William is no exception.

The royal dad has been very open about his love for motorbikes in the past, but now has explained that he’s decided to put his hobby behind him because of his children.

William, who’s expecting his third child with wife Kate, made the revelation to triple World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea, as he was being made an MBE at Buckingham Palace.

‘I know he’s a bit of a motorcycle fan himself,’ the sportsman told Press Association.

‘We talked about his bikes and the fact that he has put it on the back-burner a little bit because of his children now.’

William’s decision may have come after he found out that his brood is getting even bigger, as Kate previously revealed that he was still riding his bike in 2015, when he was already a father of two.

‘He’s still riding it. It always fills me with horror when he goes out on it!’, she said at an event at the time.

The mum, who’s now expecting her third child, also said she’s hoping George won’t take after his dad: ‘I’m terrified. Hopefully, I’m going to keep George off it.

William’s passion for motorbikes, which Prince Harry also shares, started when he was very young, and he passed his motorbike test when he was 19.

In 2008, the two brothers took part in a motorcycle rally across Africa to raise money for charity.

Talking about his love for bikes, William previously said: ‘I don’t know what it is about bikes, but I’ve always had a passion for motorbikes ever since I was very small.

‘I used to do a lot of go-karting when I was younger and then after that I went on to quadbikes and eventually motorbikes.

‘It does help being anonymous with my motorcycle helmet on because it does enable me to relax. But I just enjoy everything about motorbikes and the camaraderie that comes with it.’
