Prince Harry flew solo when he made a surprise appearance at the US Grand Prix Sunday to cheer on Lewis Hamilton and his teammate, George Russell.

The Duke of Sussex jetted to Austin, Texas, ahead of the Formula 1 race at the Circuit of the Americas sans wife Meghan Markle and their kids Archie, 4 and Lilibet, 2.

“He was enjoying being with the team and speaking to both Lewis and George pre-race,” an insider told Page Six, noting he was a guest of Mercedes-AMG Petronas.

Harry opted not to walk down the chaotic starting grid, however he was seen standing in the pit lane chatting to Russell about the special edition Vintage Find collection and conversing with other VIP attendees.

He watched the race from the team’s garage, where he was later joined by billionaire Elon Musk.

The Tesla founder arrived more than an hour after the race began, making his way into the Mercedes compound with his son X, whom he shares with singer Grimes.

Drew Barrymore, Joe Jonas, Adam Driver and Patrick Dempsey were among the other A-listers who attended the Grand Prix.

This wasn’t the first time Harry has shown his support for Hamilton, who is a seven-time world champion.

Back in 2014, he took the Mercedes crew’s radio to congratulate his fellow Brit on winning a second world title.

“Lewis thank you very very much for not letting or making the British public sweat,” he said over the head set at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“You are an absolute legend. Well done, mate.”

Hamilton finished second behind reigning world champion Max Verstappen at the US Grand Prix Sunday, however he was later disqualified when his car failed to pass a post-race inspection.

Fans of the Sussexes may be seeing a lot more of Harry — and Markle — after it was reported the couple could be making a cameo in the hit reality show, “The Kardashians.”
