Easy rider: William roars out of Clarence House on his beloved Ducati as he went to spend one of his last nights as a bachelor by playing five-a-side football with the boys
Biker Wills speeds off for final kickabout as single man
Prince William has already confessed that his knees are ‘tapping quite nervously’ as his wedding day approaches.
But nerves did not stop the 28-year-old jumping on his motorbike to spend one of his last nights as a bachelor by playing five-a-side football with the boys.
During a kick-about in a South London park at 10pm on Tuesday, one of William’s friends was overheard referring to his ‘last day of freedom’.

At one point, a team-mate wearing a baseball cap and blue shirt grabbed his arm and bounced the football off the back of his head while the others laughed and jeered.
A second friend then took over, throwing the ball at William’s growing bald patch.
The prince seemed embarrassed by the spectacle and bowed his head in an attempt to shrug off the attention.
Wearing England shorts, a black shirt and socks in the colour of his favourite team, Aston Villa, he sprinted around the park playing central defence to shouts of ‘William’ and ‘Wills’.
Pensive: William looked thoughtful as he played football with a group of friends. Perhaps he was having some last-minute jitters
