Does the royal family watch The Crown? It’s a question we’ve all wondered, but only Alicia Vikander dared to ask.

The Oscar-winning actress was seated next to Prince William at a black-tie dinner during the royal tour of Stockholm last week and bravely chose Netflix’s royal drama for her dinner conversation topic.

The Tomb Raider star told Norwegian talk show host Fredrik Skavlan, “Well, I’ve seen The Crown! It’s actually the first thing my friend and I started talking about with William. Apparently he’s a Game of Thrones fan, I was told.”

Sadly, she didn’t share if the Duke of Cambridge indulges, but she did entertain us by detailing the rest of her royal dining faux pas: “I was sitting there looking around me. I guessed that you were supposed to wait, but I was very hungry,” she joked. “Normally, if you’re more than ten people, you’re allowed to start eating, but nobody else did, so I held back. I didn’t even have a sip of water because I thought, ‘No, I’ll just wait.’” 

Oh, to have been a fly on that wall…
