Ben Affleck’s Son Once Had a Playdate with Prince George and Princess Charlotte
The actor and his boy Samuel, 4, met the royal children at a kids’ playground in London, England recently. The best part? Affleck had no idea they were there.
“Despite going to Windsor Castle, Tower of London and Buckingham Palace, we didn’t see one royal,” he recalled during Graham Norton’s BBC show. “Then when it was raining I took my youngest to one of those kid’s indoor play parks. It was pretty empty and then I noticed this weird vibe from the other grownups.”
“They were all very well dressed and they had earpieces and I thought, ‘For a kids’ place this is tight security!’ I was the very last person to realize that Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in there playing with my kid,” Affleck, 44, continued.
Unfortunately for little Samuel, he caught a cold after their playdate. “I can now tell (Sam) that he got a cold from the King of England!” the Accountant star joked.
It’s safe to say that Ben Affleck can officially pick up his Best Dad award after this playdate — especially since he also took his daughters to meet Taylor Swift this year.
