Prince William and Princess Kate are currently enjoying the school break with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, and during the break they had a treat for their eldest two.

The Sun reports that the Prince and Princess of Wales undertook a low-key visit to Buttersteep Rise, Ascot, alongside George and Charlotte in order to watch filming for the next season of Amazon Prime series Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. They were also able to meet some of the cast for the hit-show.

In 2014, Martin Freeman, who starred in The Hobbit films, revealed that the Prince of Wales was a huge fan of the movies and the J.R.R. Tolkien book series that inspired them.

At the Olivier Awards, he shared: "He was a nice guy. He is the biggest royal fan. We have fans everywhere it is a very beloved book. William wanted to be there at premiere as Kate was in hospital at the time so he obviously wanted to be there."

Martin added: "He knew all the facts about Middle Earth and I think I kept him talking too long."

The Prince has been President of BAFTA since 2010, and Kate first joined him at the star-studded bash in 2017.

The couple were unable to attend the ceremony last year due to "diary constraints" but William made a virtual appearance in a special video message.
