Prince Harry is reportedly being lined up to appear on Top Gear.

The Sun reports that Jeremy Clarkson is keen to sign the 26-year-old up to take part in the 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car' feature in the next series. The paper claims that Harry is determined to beat a lap-time set by Tom Cruise in a Kia Cee'd hatchback.

"The prince is a massive Top Gear fan and is dying to give the Kia a spin," a source said. "He loves driving and ideally he'd like to beat Tom Cruise just for the boasting rights."

However, Harry apparently wants to use the appearance to promote the Armed Forces and could be seen demonstrating military equipment if given approval by the Ministry of Defence.

"He doesn't want it to be all about him. He wants to raise awareness of the Armed Forces," the source added.
