Martin Freeman: Prince William is a big fan of ‘The Hobbit’


Prince William is a huge fan of The Hobbit, according to Martin Freeman.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, the actor has revealed he met the British royal at the premiere of An Unexpected Journey, in 2012 and was surprised that William knew so much about the story.

Freeman said: “He was a nice guy. He is the biggest royal fan. We have fans everywhere, it is a very beloved book… He knew all the facts about Middle Earth and I think I kept him talking too long. You know the protocol, you have got to let them say what they want to say and let them move on but I think I was boring him a little bit as I held onto him, talking about Middle Earth.”

    Wills has plenty of time to watch The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings trilogy or any films he chooses since he has a life of leisure, doing nothing and having plenty of holidays, like this Australian holiday he’s on now.

    “He knows all about the fantasy world they live in”. No irony in that statement.
