Prince Harry stepped out with Lewis Hamilton to open a British racing museum

I try to care about many sports and I even succeed sometimes, but one “sport” which has always left me cold is racing. I seriously could not care less. I actually actively hate racing? It’s just so “boys and their toys” and I find it all so wasteful and stupid. I did watch Ford v. Ferrari and I enjoyed the dramatic/historical aspect of it, but I fast-forwarded through a lot of the racing scenes. Like, I’m interested in the evolution of the car industry from an economic and environmental perspective. The racing industry seems antithetical to that interest. But clearly, I’m alone there.

So, The Silverstone Experience is supposed to be a museum about the history of British motorsports. Prince Harry was there today to open the museum with British racer Lewis Hamilton. I recognize that Lewis Hamilton is a big deal in racing (Formula One, right?) and in British sports/racing. But I mostly know his name because he dated Nicole Scherzinger for a while. Lewis drove Harry to the museum in the new Mercedes electric EQC (I hope that means something to someone, because it’s all Greek to me).

Also: did Harry only bring one blue shirt? I’m pretty sure this is the same shirt he wore last week to the Abbey Road event with Jon Bon Jovi. Harry did change his pants though.

PS… Okay, the Mercedes is SUPER pretty and it’s electric? I would love to own this car! It probably costs close to a hundred thousand though.

    I noticed the shirt thing too. Guess he packed light.

    • Abena Asantewaa says:

      Hahaahaa! The blue shirt, I noticed that as well, I am sure it’s the same one. At least contrary to what the media thinks, Meghan does not choose clothes for Harry, it’s obvious he is his own man, and chooses what to wear, by himself, Meghan may suggest something, as most wives and partners do, but ultimately, the choice is with the wearer.

  2. TeddyPicker says:

    Harry’s dad vibes are definitely showing – especially standing next to Lewis (I love his jacket/top!)

    • cherriepie84 says:

      Was thinking the same thing! Dad pants anyone? lol. Good thing he is naturally sexy and charismatic

  3. Astrid says:

    I’m not much of a sports fan. The idea of watching golf, bowling, cars going around a circle 500 times seems crazy lame….I much prefer the higher entertainment value of celebrity gossip LOL

    • Snappyfish says:

      I love F1. It’s really more an engineering thing than a racing thing & it’s all throughout world. Went to the Monaco Grand Prix in college (it’s also quite posh) & got hooked. Lewis is the current rock star (6 time world champion) oddly I agree about nascar & Indy racing. Watching cars drive in a circle for hours is boring. Of course I am a horse racing girl so F1 is the most horses around w/o the 4 legs.

      Harry looks really good & relaxed but should lose that shirt

      • Bella DuPont says:

        @ Snappy Fish

        I’m a massive F1 fan as well, since 2006 and have almost obsessively followed Hamilton’s story. Throughout his epic debut, the huge $100m spygate scandal, his extremely dramatic title win the next year (last race, last lap, last corner!), his epic rivalry against Rosberg (the plotting, the cheating, the bitching, the dramatic retirements…)….😁🤯.

        Come on, Kaiser, I think you’re missing out big time re F1. Once you know the back stories of each of the drivers and the dynamics of their relationships with one another, the actual racing takes on a life of its own.

      • Snappyfish says:

        @Bella 1000% to all you said!! & now we go into the season w/Ferrari’s silent deal w/F1 over the illegal engine!!

  4. Ohpioneer says:

    Coming to a tabloid near you soon: “Meghan spends millions on clothing; Harry left with one blue shirt!”

    • Nahema says:

      It is kind of funny that Harry clearly has so little interest in clothes. He dresses awfully but then so does his brother.

      When I look at Harry in those pics, it feels like he’s morphing into a ginger Prince Charles.

      • Eyfalia says:

        Contrary to his sons Charles is very attentive to how he dresses. I bet Harry has about 5-6 shirts like this blue one.

  5. Becks1 says:

    The Sussex royal IG posted a “story” about this visit set to Danger Zone. It made me laugh lol.

    And that is a gorgeous car.

  6. TheOriginalMia says:

    That car is gorgeous. Sigh. Nice to look at but far too expensive for little ol’ me.

    I’ll take Harry’s repeat shirt over William’s sweater. Both need to be retired, tbh.

  7. Esma K. says:

    Hah :) If he is like my husband he might just buy 2 of something when he really likes it. Who knows, or maybe it is a rewear.

  8. Beach Dreams says:

    Doesn’t he like wearing the same or similar pieces to cut into the profits the press would make off of his photos? Besides personal fashion preferences, I thought that was a possible factor.

    • dynastysurf says:

      I’d believe that in his private time – harder to date pictures and say they’re from different days when the outfits look identical – but for events like this, each event is so distinct from the next I don’t think it’s as likely. I know Daniel Radcliffe definitely did this when he was in a show and getting papped every night on his way out of the theater.

  9. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    I hate racing too: I only like it when they show the track from the driver’s perspective, because then you at least get some second-hand adrenalin. Otherwise it seems to be nothing more than grown men going round and round and round a track, loudly.

  10. sj says:

    i love F1. got into it because of my husband, but i honestly have gotten to be a fan in my own right now that i actually know enough to understand what’s going on. it’s totally fine to not like it though. i would just say that it’s no more stupid and wasteful or ‘boys and their toys’ than any other professional sport where men run around. if one is wasteful then they’re all ‘wasteful’ by that definition. at least in this one, there are a few women, and the technology that they advance does trickle down to real cars. you can’t really say that about football.

  11. heygingersnaps says:

    I’m an F1 fan and my son has developed a love for the sport, he was always exposed to watching the races whilst in utero and when he was born.
    We’re both Lewis Hamilton & Mercedes fans.
    Lewis has matured and change so much (for the better) as years have gone by and has made it a conscious effort to use his platform to highlight positivity, climate change, making a difference as a person and being an example that even if the odds were stack against him in a wealthy white man’s sport he(together with his family) has overcome it and is still winning.

  12. Nanea says:

    I saw some pics on Twitter of Lewis and PH arriving.

    Harry closed the car door all by himself, so if he gets the same treatment as his lovely wife, all frontpages of the papers tomorrow should report on that scandal ;-)

    Can you imagine – former royal has forgotten all about his upbringing, and because of that, the monarchy is threatened.

  13. Brandy Alexander says:

    Another F1 fan here. Came for the racing and stayed for the dramatics the drivers bring. Better than celebrity gossip because they actually do talk crap about each other.

    Lewis Hamilton isn’t just a big deal in racing, he’s THE BIGGEST DEAL. If he wins this year, he ties for the most championships ever, and nobody really thinks he’s not going to win it. At this particular event, he is the draw.

  14. TIFFANY says:

    Lewis Hamilton is SMOKIN !!!

    Wait, what were we talking about, right….Lewis Hamilton is SMOKIN !!!

  15. Renee says:

    I LOVE racing and find Lewis Hamilton so sexy!!!

  16. TheOtherSarah says:

    I don’t care for racing but that Hamilton fellow is one sexy dude. Let me go google him.

  17. Catherine says:

    Harry’s Windsor genes are showing up😔 it’s just about time to shave his head. I wonder if he will keep the beard when the hair goes (it’s pretty much gone as is)

  18. Kimmie says:

    LOVE F1 racing and am a huge fan of Lewis. He’s a six time world champion and has a clothing line collab with Tommy Hilfiger for a second time. I read the headline and was geeking out big time! I was actually wondering the other day whether he and Harry would ever meet, so this story just makes my geek heart sing. I know F1 and racing in general isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you read about how Lewis got to be where he is now, you might become a fan too.

  19. MellyMel says:

    Yep never got into racing, but I LOVE that car! Wow…gorgeous! And Lewis has always been so good looking to me.

  20. Chelle says:

    Their closest is probably like most couples. Hers takes up about 3/4 of the space and his things are wedged in way down on the side—and he still claims he can’t find his blue shirt. “It’s right there. Don’t you see it”😂

  21. Lisa says:

    Love them both getting stuff done.

  22. Lowrider says:

    Harry looks messy. He must do something about this hair situation.

  23. MsIam says:

    Harry’s blue shirt=the brown and blue suede shoes, lol. Although I think he has finally gotten some new ones?

  24. L4frimaire says:

    That shirt Harry is wearing has definitely seen better days. It looks worn at the seams. Take that man to Savile Row, heck I’d settle for those Untuckit shirts or Bonobos. He looks a bit scruffy, like he just rolled out of bed, wink wink. Wonder what he got up to last night. 😉😘.

  25. Abena Asantewaa says:

    Harry still looks sexy in his one blue shirt.
