Prince Charles Drives a London Tube Train

Posted on

Prince Harry may be an award-winning army helicopter pilot, but his father isn’t about to be outdone in the transportation department.

On Friday, Prince Charles piloted a London Underground tube train in Derby, England, as part of his visit to the factory where the trains are built.

The Prince of Wales viewed and test-drove the new London Underground train on a test track, according to a press release. A source tells PEOPLE that he got up to about 45 mph and “seemed to enjoy himself.”

Your move, Harry.
