    When the senior royal asked the Blackadder actor, who was dressed as his iconic Lord Melchett character, whether he had watched anything good on TV throughout the lockdown, Stephen brought up recent Netflix hit Tiger King.

    The True Crime documentary, which recently shot up Netflix’s most-watched list, follows American figure Tiger King – real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage – as he goes through the ups and downs of breeding big cats and explores the bizarre underworld that surrounds the hobby.

    And the Duke of Cambridge revealed that he was fully aware of the strange series, quipping that he “tend[s] to avoid shows royalty”.
