Prince Harry spotted with childhood friend in Montecito

Prince Harry has been enjoying his new life in Montecito, California, and has begun to introduce his close friends to it.

The Duke of Sussex was seen cycling around town with his childhood best friend, Charlie van Straubenzee, on Tuesday. Harry and Charlie were photographed riding a pair of white Rad Power Cargo electric bikes, which were later published online.

When they arrived at a junction, the Duke was seen using his right hand to indicate that the pair were about to turn.

In the hot LA weather, the couple wore shorts and jackets, both in blue, with the Duke opting for a lighter shade. Harry wore white trainers, while Charlie wore black ones.

Both wore sunglasses, but Harry had one fashion distinction over his pal: he completed his ensemble with a cap.

After attending Ludgrove School in Wokingham, a preparatory boarding school for boys aged eight to thirteen, Harry and Charlie became fast friends.

Charlie was an usher at Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018, and he is also the godfather of Archie, Harry and Meghan’s first child.

“I’m so happy that friends are coming to visit to soak in the joys of Harry’s life,” one royal fan said of seeing the couple together.

Others said the scene was “wonderful” and posted heart emojis, while another said: “So happy he has found peaceful living that he has always craved.”

If you want to ride an e-bike like Harry and Charlie did, you’re in luck because Rad Power Bikes sells them – though the white ones they used are currently out of stock.

However, the bikes are also available in orange and black, and they come with a two-year warranty. The bikes cost around £1,626 each.
