Italian prince killed by HGV while cycling on upmarket London street

An Italian prince has been killed on the streets of London while cycling, it has been confirmed.

Filippo Corsini, from Florentine, died on Monday near Knightsbridge station.

It is understood he was knocked over by a HGV and dragged across a box junction.

He was pronounced dead just half an hour later.

Mr Corsini, a horse rider and from the family line of Pope Clemente XII, was in London studying at Regent’s University in Regent’s Park.

Londoners took to Facebook to send condolences, many expressing their anger towards rules which allow HGVs on the streets.

“Deepest condolences to his family and friends. Please know this: there are many people who are campaigning to stop these senseless killings,” wrote Andrew Reeves-Hall.
