'He's only ten!' Queen's grandson sparks controversy as he's seen driving family Land Rover at Windsor Castle

Viscount Severn

The royal family got together to celebrate Easter over the weekend, but it was the Queen's 10-year-old grandson who sparked controversy.

Following tradition, the royals made their way to Windsor for the family's annual Easter service on Sunday, held at Windsor chapel - the same location picked for Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding in May.

Alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - who's due to give birth to their third child this month - the Queen's son Prince Edward also attended the service with his wife, the Countess of Wessex and their children Lady Louise Windsor, 14, and 10-year-old James.

But after the celebrations, James, who's the Queen's youngest grandchild, was spotted driving his family's Land Rover around the gardens of Windsor Castle despite his young age.

According to the Daily Mail, the young royal - also known as - was sat on someone's lap while he was driving the vehicle at a 'reasonably fast' speed.

Royal watchers were quick to take to social media to comment on James' drive, with some saying he's 'too young' to be driving.

One wrote: 'He's only ten! I wonder who taught him how to drive?', while another added 'Why was a 10 year old Viscount Severn driving a Range Rover??? #security #wherewasdad #toyoungtobedriving'.

However, others did not seem to mind his young age, and pointing out that he wasn't doing anything wrong as he was driving on private land.

One said: 'Viscount Severn is 10-years-old and cooler than I could ever dream of being', while another added: 'Nothing wrong with that on private roads'.

In fact, motorists do not need a licence to drive a car on private land under the law, so James was legally allowed to drive on the gardens of the castle.

However, even though it's legal, insurance companies would refused to pay out in the event of an accident according to The Telegraph.
