Eddie Redmayne reveals he has seen the Duke of Cambridge naked

Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne has admitted he has seen the Duke of Cambridge naked.

Eddie was in the same year as William at Eton College and twice said “yes” when quizzed on US TV show Watch What Happens Live whether he had seen the Duke’s privates and if they had got drunk together.

He revealed that the future king was always targeted by other teams during school rugby matches.

“All the people from the other schools would want to tackle him because they could go home and tell their families they tackled Prince William.

“So we were sort of running around with no one on us.”

The Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them star also said rumours that he had dated Taylor Swift were not true.

Eddie said: “I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift, although I met Taylor Swift.

“She auditioned for Les Miserables and she was amazing in the audition. We got to sing together which was a big moment for me but we never went out. She was extraordinary.”
