Duke and Duchess of Cambridge fans of 'Benidorm' series
11 April 2018 @ 23:48

DUKE and Duchess of Cambridge William and Kate are huge fans of the TV comedy series Benidorm, which is shot on location at a hotel in the Costa Blanca tourism capital.

Actors and actresses from the ITV show, which satirises the 'bargain-basement' end of British package holidaymakers, have been touring theatres in the UK and Ireland to promote the series and also Benidorm as a town.

Prince William and Princess Catherine, known prior to their wedding as Kate Middleton, even received a letter from Benidorm's mayor Augstín Navarro inviting them to spend their honeymoon in the town.

Despite being one of the odds at the bookies before the Royal couple's post-wedding destination was known, Benidorm was probably not a serious choice for the Duke and Duchess, who will turn 36 this year – in the end, they holidayed on a secluded island in the Seychelles.

But they love the show and were delighted to hear Benidorm town named a tapas dish after them to mark their nuptials.

They met up with the Benidorm cast at the Royal Variety Show and told them how they are glued to the series and enjoy its humour.

Benidorm has just released a new series and its prime-time slot means it attracts around four million viewers per episode.
