As tradition would have it, the British royal family gathered together to celebrate the Easter holiday. The entire family, minus a few key members, loaded up and headed straight for the Windsor Chapel for the Easter celebration service.
Prince William accompanied his heavily pregnant wife, Kate Middleton. The Duchess is set to give birth within the following weeks so many were happily surprised to see her make an appearance for the joyous occasion.
After the celebration, though, some caught wind of unusual activities done by some of the family and the news has many up in arms. The Queen’s grandson, James, better known as Viscount Severn, was seen taking a drive in the family Land Rover around the family’s private gardens. Seems rather innocent, right? Well, not if you’re under the legal driving age.
James is ten-years-old and is said to have always had an affinity for cars, even from a much younger age. During his brief excursion, he sat in the lap of his mother, the Countess of Wessex, who appeared just as gleeful as he. It was noted that they were driving around at a very reasonable speed causing additional concerns to many.
Many that have seen the images have been alarmed at the situation, stating that it is completely unsafe and illegal to do such. To the great surprise of many, a license isn’t necessary when driving on private property, so James technically was breaking no rules here. In the event of an accident, though, insurance companies would not cover any damages occurred.
What do you think about this? Do you think it’s wrong that James was allowed to do this?
