WHY WILLIAM DOESN’T WATCH “TIGER KING”

At one point during their interaction, William asked Fry: "By the way have you seen anything good on TV? It's hell without ‘EastEnders.’" The comedian suggested the docuseries but the prince wasn’t pleased.

William jokingly responded: "I tend to avoid shows about royalty." The interaction between the royal and Fry was an interlude to 8.pm.’s Care for Cares initiative in the UK.
