Fawlty Towers star John Cleese, 81, has paid a backhanded compliment to Prince William, 38, while slating recent Euro 2020 matches. The actor took to Twitter to compare the matches to the Duke of Cambridge, branding them “dull as Prince William”.

John appeared to take a thinly-veiled swipe at some other members of the Royal Family, as he declared that being boring “is exactly what you want in a Royal”.

The star spoke out while discussing his opinions on the tournament so far in view of his 5.6 million followers this afternoon.

He penned: “I’m wondering why I find most of the football played in the Euros very boring

“If we can anticipate where the ball is going to be passed a second or so before it happens, this must make the defenders’ job easier mustn’t it ?
