A trip down memory lane in the finish lane!

Prince Harry visited the Silverstone Circuit on Wednesday to mark the official start of construction on a new educational center. The 33-year-old royal is a patron of the organization, which is Britain’s home of motor racing, and has visited several times.

One of his most memorable visits was when he was 9 years old in 1994 and was accompanied by his late mother, Princess Diana, to present the trophy at the Grand Prix.

Kensington Palace shared some adorable throwback photos of Harry from that visit to their Twitter account during his visit.

Harry also visited the Silverstone University Technical College to meet with students and alumni who are currently working in the motorsport industry. He gave a speech to the crowd at the event, saying, “It is well known that Great Britain is a world leader in high performance engineering and motor racing engineering in particular - as well as having some great drivers as well but it is no exaggeration to say that, unless we encourage more young people to study science, technology, engineering and maths it will be impossible for us to continue to lead in this field.”

Following his speech, Harry officially lit the green light for construction on the project to begin. While the redheaded royal was having fun on the raceways, his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, was promoting children’s mental health at the Place2Be headquarters in London.

Recently the two teamed up with Prince William and Harrys’ fiancée, Meghan Markle, for a joint event. Watch the clip below for more!
