Chris Evans: Virgin Radio host caught taking shortcut through Prince Andrew’s estate

The MailOnline reported that the radio DJ was heading home to his 17th century mansion in Ascot, where he lives with his wife Natasha and their children Noah, 10, Eli, seven and 19-month-old twins Walt and Boo.
The host had been in Windsor donating a washing machine to a local community project.
