We see in the movies that all royals do are train, wave courteously, smile politely, and train some more. With a hectic schedule, people believe that the British royal family doesn’t have time for friendships outside the Windsor Castle.
As it turns out, the things we see in the movies are far from the truth. Here are seven unlikely royal friendships that will surprise you.
1. Prince William and Eddie Redmayne
Prince William and Eddie Redmayne’s friendship started way back in their younger years. The Fantastic Beasts actor and the Duke of Cambridge went to school at Eton and played rugby on the same team. Eddie previously shared a rather fun story during his rugby days with the prince.
“The thing about playing rugby with Prince William is it was great for us because all the people from the other schools would want to tackle him because they could go home and tell their families they tackled Prince William. So we were sort of running around with no one on us.”
2. Princes William and Harry and David Beckham
The soccer legend was present in both William and Harry’s weddings, so it’s already a giveaway that he had formed a friendship with the princes. David described the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex as “very easy to get along with.”
3. Meghan Markle and Serena Williams
Serena Williams was invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding because of her friendship with the former actress. The Duchess of Sussex even shared that the professional tennis player is her “confidante.”
4. Duchess Camilla and Angelina Jolie
The wife of Prince Charles and the Hollywood superstar bonded through their love for humanity. Angelina met up with Camilla a few years ago in London after giving a talk at a global summit. The rest, as they say, is history.
5. Prince Harry and Rihanna
Although the prince and the singer were heavily shipped in the past, they were just good friends. Harry and Rihanna met during the 50th anniversary of the independence of Barbados, which is the latter’s birthplace. They enjoyed a concert together and even underwent HIV tests live on camera to promote World AIDS Day.
6. Princess Diana and Elton John
Just like any other friendships, the Princess of Wales and the music icon were once close but had a falling out. Thankfully, they reconciled before her death. Ironically, Diana comforted Elton at the funeral of his friend, fashion designer Gianni Versace. Just a month later, the people’s princess was in a tragic accident.
