Screen legend Sir Roger Moore met with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their visit to a UNICEF supply centre in Denmark last week, and has lavished praise on the royal couple for their charity work.
The royals were in Copenhagen to help draw attention to the humanitarian crisis in East Africa by packing boxes for famine-affected people.
“They are both very interested in East Africa, it’s so close to their hearts,” Sir Roger was reported as saying. “It was just reiterating their passion for this cause – and I think it must be a passion, otherwise the royals wouldn’t just give up a day of their very busy lives and the high demands there are on them for attending all sorts of functions… and that’s apart from the RAF duties of the Duke.”
The James Bond star also spoke about Princess Diana's lasting legacy.
“I think comparisons are odious, but [Diana] did wonderful things in bringing the world’s attention to the danger of landmines, and I think that their royal highnesses are showing an equal interest.”
