Danny Dyer introduces himself to his ‘long lost relation’ Prince Charles

This is the moment Prince Charles chuckled after Eastenders star Danny Dyer told him "I’m related to you".

The pair met before the Prince’s Trust Awards in London today, before which the actor said: "I’m in EastEnders. Just wanted to let you know we’re related as well. King Edward III is my grandfather – but I won’t go into it. No he is, on my life."

The prince replied: "A very long way away."

"Yeah, I know, I know," said Dyer.

Speaking later during the ceremony, Prince Charles, 70, said: "I’ve discovered a long lost relation in Danny Dyer.

"He told me he was descended from Edward III, which is interesting.

"I must do some research when I get back."

But when Dyer, 41, spoke on stage at the London Palladium, he joked his bizarre reference went "straight up his [Charles’] nut".

The Football Factory actor discovered in 2016 that he is related to Thomas Cromwell, Edward III, William the Conqueror and Henry III during filming for Who Do You Think You Are?

And in January this year, the father-of-three charted his regal lineage in a two-part BBC One series called Danny Dyer’s Right Royal Family.



Charles celebrated the success of young people helped by his Prince’s Trust at the ceremony, hosted by Fearne Cotton and Philip Schofield.

Hollywood stars Luke Evans and Chiwetel Ejiofor, musicians Anne Marie and Brian May, comic Michael McIntyre, DJs Clara Amfo and Maya Jama, and sports stars were in the audience.

Tinie Tempah was also in attendance and was too snapped joking with Charles.


The rapper, 30, recently celebrated the birth of his first child.

"Does she keep you up at night?" Charles asked Tempah.

"No, she’s very good," he replied.

Speaking after the conversation, Tempah told reporters: "He was very happy to hear that I have a daughter.

"He didn’t offer any advice but he was happy to hear she had been born."
