Royals. They're just like us. And this time, it's actually true. Cast members from the famous British series Downton Abbey revealed how the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, became huge fans of the show after Prince George was born. Cast members Rob James-Collier (Thomas Barrow), Lesley Nicol (Mrs. Patmore), Allen Leech (Tom Branson), and Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley) appeared on Watch What Happens Live! last Tuesday and made the royal confession.
Leech told Andy Cohen, "I was actually at an event last week with Prince William, now the Duke of Cambridge, so yeah -- I met him last week, shook his hand ... He actually said, 'I’m a big fan of the show -- only now that my wife’s had a baby.'"
Can you imagine the royal family gathering around to watch Downton Abbey on their TV screens just like the rest of us? And I'm sure their point of view on the series may be far different than the rest of us commoners'.
