Prince William visits motorcycle show, tours Birmingham

Prince William attended the Motorcycle Live expo on November 30, 2013, at the National Exhibition Center (NEC) in Birmingham. A keen motorcyclist and Ducati owner himself, the Duke of Cambridge put his besuited self astride a new Ducati and was photographed wearing a thoughtful expression.

The prince also received a “balance bike” for his young son, Prince George—a scale model of a sports bike meant to be pushed around by a toddler, which the four-month-old will be in just a few months. The prince toured the stands and talked to the organizers and exhibitors as he got a peek at 2014 models.

According to the BBC, the motorcycle show was just part of a full day in Birmingham, which took Prince William to the city's new library, where he read a book to children and confided that his son likes picture books, and also to an Aston Villa v. Sunderland premier league football match.

One other visit on Friday was also dear to the prince's heart. According to The Birmingham Mail, at St. Basil's Carole Gething House, a homeless center near Birmingham, he praised the city's pledge to end homelessless in Birmingham.
