After the death of Queen Elizabeth II, quite logically, many people began to remember various incidents with her in order to honor her in their own way.

Matt Smith he may not have met her, but he did touch her family. In an interview with Today, the actor says that he had the opportunity to meet Prince Harry some time ago while playing polo.

And then the prince called him “grandpa”, saying that he had been watching The Crown. It may sound strange, but there is a good explanation. Smith, currently seen as Daemon Targaryen in House of the Dragon, has taken on the role of Prince Philip, Elizabeth II’s husband and Prince Harry’s grandfather.

The actor had the opportunity to play Prince Philip in the first two seasons of The Crown, writes Variety. It was in these two seasons that the Queen was played by Claire Foy. After them, the series moved to another time period and Smith was replaced by Tobias Menzies, while Foy was replaced by Olivia Colman.

On his date with Prince Harry, Matt Smith says he realized he was watching The Crown, and that’s why he jokingly addressed him as grandpa. Of course, the actor doesn’t know if Harry is still following the series, but at the time he certainly was.
