Ben Affleck was shocked when he realised his son had been hanging out with royals in London.
“I noticed this weird vibe from the other grown-ups,” he said on the Graham Norton Show in an episode airing Friday 4 November on BBC1.
“I thought, ‘For a kids’ place this is tight security!’ but I was the very last person to realise that Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in there playing with my kid,” he explained.
There was one drawback about the royal meeting: Affleck’s son caught a cold. Although the dad didn’t seem to mind too much.
“I can now tell [Sam] that he got a cold from the King of England,” the actor adds.
Affleck has three children with former partner Jennifer Garner. The couple split in 2015 after 10 years of marriage.
