  • During a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Olivia Colman described her first meeting with Prince William.
    • Colman plays Will's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, in Seasons 3 and 4 of Netflix's hit historical drama The Crown.
      • The actress said that the encounter "didn't go very well" and that William gave her a "firm no" when she asked if he had seen The Crown.

        Still, Colman had nothing but nice things to say about William after the meeting. "He was very charming and very lovely," she said.
