The charity's Gilly Keown said: "When we heard about Prince William's visit we were thrilled that he has chosen to spend part of his time here with the foundation".

Chatting to Stuart Garner, boss and owner of Norton Motorcycles, he said: "I always stick to the speed limit", adding: 'Love it. 'I miss the big trips, for me it was always about being with everyone else'.

"I've been trying all week but the bike was faultless and after what happened in the Superbike race and then taking a second and a third, I was beginning to think it wasn't meant to be so I'm over the moon with the win".

Motorcycle enthusiast Prince William flew to the Isle of Man for one of the world's top races on Wednesday.

It features riders competing in nine races, from a superbike category to sidecar events, in time trials around the circuit which is nearly 38 miles long.

That journey, thanks to Cooper's family, and American Cancer Society's Relay for Life , is one she no longer has to walk alone. On top of supporting a worthy cause, there's another reason participants come back year after year for the Relay For Life .

Along with Harry, the duke has been a keen biker from a young age and in 2003, as he celebrated his 21st birthday, he said he was "passionate" about motorcycles and preferred two wheels to his vehicle.

William also met with fans, officials and volunteers at the Isle of Man TT.

The duke was making his first official visit to the Isle of Man - a crown dependency - and was joined by the chief minister Howard Quayle and other dignitaries.

Road Racing News magazine described him as a "talented" and "extremely personable" rider, while Gary Dunlop, the son of road racing legend Joey, wrote of understanding "the hurt and pain the family of Adam Lyon will be feeling".
