Prince William and Harry riding the Wild Coast

before the start of the Enduro Africa 08 charity motorcycle ride in Port Edward

We were treated to a glimpse of the royal brothers as they overnighted at the Hole in the Wall hotel yesterday. They are currently on a charity motorcycle ride from Port Edward to Port Elizabeth (good colonial names those, hehe), along with about 120 other riders.

I was warned to ask permission before taking any photos; so I approached their table hesitantly but was politely and diplomatically declined. Ah well. Not that I'm much of a royalist anyway, but I certainly wouldn't want to impose.

Later we went to Coffee Bay and bumped into a good friend at the Ocean View Hotel, who was busy showing a table of British paparazzi some photos of William as he was refueling at the petrol station. She also got the back of Harry, as he had seen her camera, and he gave her a cheeky grin as he quickly turned his back and slipped his helmet on. Several people have offered her real money for the photos.

The weather today is fine and clear, but there's a roaring North Westerly blowing. Their destination is unknown, but is believed to be Mazeppa Bay according to the sagoodnews website: http://www.sagoodnews.co.za/general/princes_william_and_harry_to_ride_through_sa_.html

Since the site also maintained that they would be overnighting at Coffee Bay and not Hole in the Wall, it's anyone's guess where they will actually end up.

The almost entirely off-road motorcycle ride will raise money for UNICEF, the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund and Sentebale, founded in 2006 by Prince Harry and Lesotho's Prince Seeiso, for projects in South Africa and Lesotho.
