Top Gear recruits Prince Harry

It has been reported that Prince Harry is being lined up by Jeremy Clarkson to appear on the next series of Top Gear

It has been reported that Prince Harry is being lined up by Jeremy Clarkson to appear on the next series of Top Gear. Apparently Prince Harry is a Top Gear fan and has said he would like to beat the fastest time set by Tom Cruise.

A source said "the prince is a massive Top Gear fan and is dying to give the Kia a spin. He loves driving and ideally he'd like to beat Tom Cruise just for the boasting rights." Harry also wants to get some Army buddies on the programme. The source added "he doesn't want it to be all about him. He wants to raise awareness of the Armed Forces." This could lead to demonstrating military equipment in the Ministry of Defence agreed.

Clarkson is a friend of Prince Harry, says The Sun, which means the famous Royal could actually appear on Top Gear, when the series returns later in the year. The 17th series of the show is scheduled to appear in June 2011.
