What with the small matter of one of the biggest weddings in history, as well as royal tours and appointments, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have little tie for watching TV.

But you'd be wrong - because the royal couple, who've just returned from a royal tour in Canada and California, have revealed they loved period ITV drama Downton Abbey.

The pair made the confession to talented Jessica Brown-Findlay - who plays Lady Sybil Crawley in the show - while at a party in Los Angeles.

The 21-year-old star told the Sunday Express: 'They said they'd watched the show and were excited to see the second series.

'Prince William is very handsome and Kate is a gorgeous girl. They make a perfect couple. They seemed really at ease and so in love.

'I didn't think when I was watching the wedding at home on TV that I'd get to meet them. I was nervous the whole night, but what an honour! I'll never forget that.'

The first series of Downton Abbey hit the TV screens last year, and was watched by 13 million viewers.

The show has received 11 Emmy nominations and the second series - which is set during the First World War - will return to the screens in September.

We can't wait - and neither, apparently, can Kate and William.
