Royals fans are buzzing with excitement over a viral video featuring Prince William riding an electric scooter around Windsor Castle.

The video was shared on TikTok by user Ashley (@ashleyxue_).

PRINCE WILLIAM GOES VIRAL ONLINE

It shows the Prince of Wales casually zooming around the castle grounds while sporting sunglasses, according to the Independent.

The text overlay on the video humorously reads: “POV: you need to use the bathroom but it’s on the other side of your castle.”

This light-hearted caption has only added to the charm of the clip, which has quickly garnered widespread attention.

PRINCE WILLIAM ZOOMS AROUND THE CASTLE

Ashley’s sister, Angela, also shared the video with a different caption. “Happy Fourth of July from Prince William on a scooter.”

Angela’s version has amassed over two million views as of Saturday.

This prompted a flood of delighted comments, according to YNet News.

“Prince William has such dad vibes and I love it,” one fan commented.

Another added, “Pulling up to Windsor Castle on a scooter is the funniest thing.”

One commenter even joked, “I’M CRYING IMAGINE BEING A CASTLE GUARD AND YOU JUST SEE THE HEIR TO THE THRONE ZOOM PAST YOU ON A SCOOTER.”

IS PRINCE WILLIAM A SWIFTIE?

This isn’t the first time Prince William has gone viral on TikTok.

He was spotted at a Taylor Swift concert at Wembley Stadium with his children, Prince George, 10, and Princess Charlotte, eight, according to People.

A fan captured William dancing to Swift’s hit Shake It Off, and the video received over 18 million views.

The sight of the royal enjoying himself so openly delighted many.

“Wdym PRINCE WILLIAM IS SWIFTIE?!?!” one user exclaimed.

PLAYFUL SIDE

Another agreed, “Prince William is the Swiftie we all needed. He is positively unhinged in the best of ways right here!”

Back in July 2023, William bought an e-scooter, reportedly to help him quickly travel between his home at Adelaide Cottage and Windsor Castle.

A source explained, “It just makes sense. He whizzes up to the castle when he needs to see the King.

It’s a two or three-mile round trip, so it’s easier by scooter than car or walking.”

The video of Prince William on an e-scooter has given fans a charming glimpse into his more relaxed, playful side.
