Prince Williams subtle reaction as hes told to Netflix and chill by royal fan

Prince William was told he should “Netflix and chill” during a royal visit – with the future King simply nodding in response.

The 40 year oldroyal was visiting The Garden Cinema in central London for Film Africa, a festival celebrating black stories on the big screen.

The biennial event, organised by The Royal African Society, aims to give young film students of African heritage an opportunity to learn more about the industry, network with others and learn from international professionals.

During the festival, the Prince of Wales sat in the audience for a Q&A session, joined workshop groups and heard about the experiences of students.

And when the heir to the throne spoke of his interest in watching more African cinema, EbonyLife Films founder Mo Abudu advised him to “Netflix and chill” – a euphemistic slang term that suggests doing more than just watching movies.

Mo, who spoke to William in a discussion group, described how she told the Prince to watch The King's Horseman – a film made by her company, due to be released on Netflix this week.

She added: "He said he hasn't watched a lot of African films but that he would like to and that he's going to watch The King's Horseman.

"I said you must 'Netflix and chill' and he nodded.

"I'm excited that I've been able to tell the prince about my film today."

During Wednesday's film festival engagement, Prince William listened intently as students and experts told of their experiences in the film industry.

During the Q&A, Mo told those gathered in the screening room that "black storytelling is key".

She said: "I think it doesn't matter what part of the world we come from, you can be from Africa, you can be American, you can be black British, you can be from the Caribbean.

"I just think that there's something about being a global black person and telling stories that reflect the black consciousness that we need to keep doing."

She added: "Yes, our focus is to tell black stories because there aren't enough black stories being told. So it's not about 'oh, is it reverse racism?' No, it's not. It's actually about diversity."

Film Africa was established in 2011 to showcase the best African cinema from across the continent and diaspora in the UK.

This year's festival features 48 films from 16 countries, in seven venues – including 22 UK, Europe and world premieres.

Meanwhile, Netflix's royal drama The Crown has repeatedly been in the headlines, with the new season – out in November – facing criticism over its historical accuracy.

Screen legendDame Judi Dench said it has begun to verge on “crude sensationalism” while Sir John Major is said to have described forthcoming scenes, which reportedly depict King Charles, then the Prince of Wales, plotting to oust the Queen, as “malicious nonsense”.
