Prince William is to visit Triumph Motorcycles in Hinckley next week but won’t be accompanied by his wife the Duchess of Cambridge, who is due to give birth to their third child in April.
It’s the second time in a month that the Duke of Cambridge has visited the Midlands; he was in Coventry with his wife Kate in January.
On the trip to the Midlands, the heir to the throne will also visit the MIRA technology park in Warwickshire, which is at the forefront of automotive testing & technology.
At Triumph Motorcycles the Duke will tour the factory and walk the assembly line, meeting technicians and apprentices working on-site.
His Royal Highness will then officially open the Triumph Motorcycles Factory Visitor Experience, which ITV Central got a first look at in October last year.
