Actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney on Friday welcomed King Charles III and Camilla, Britain’s Queen Consort, as co-owners of Wrexham AFC football club in Wales, Entertainment Tonight reported. Gathered in the field, the four took photos, shook hands and laughed together.
“Welcome to Wrexham Season 2: Charles in Charge”, Reynolds later tweeted next to a picture of him and the king.
Reynolds had never met McElhenney when he messaged the “It’s always sunny in Philadelphia” actor about acquiring the team during the 2020 shutdowns. That’s exactly what they did in 2021, however, and filmed the process of the Disney+ docuseries “Welcome to Wrexham.”
“You really have to watch Welcome to Wrexham for it to make sense,” McElhenney tweeted Friday alongside a photo of the four. “And even then it goes on [might not] make sense.
Reynolds previously told Yahoo that the two actors acquired Wrexham, the world’s third-oldest professional football club, to lead an underdog side to victory. While meeting kings and queens surely wasn’t considered, sources told ET that the royals have agreed to be filmed for the series.
“I had the opportunity to see one of the other wonders of Wrexham, namely the football club, which is busy putting Wrexham on the map like never before,” Charles said in a speech later in the day. day, ET reported.
“And, of course, this comes after the Welsh national team brought unprecedented international recognition to Wales by qualifying for the World Cup,” the newly crowned King continued.
As Reynolds rides high after the People’s Choice Awards this week, the Royal Family answered questions about Thursday’s release of ‘Harry & Meghan’ – a Netflix documentary series about the royal lives of Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle .
The series has already sparked controversy. A Buckingham Palace source told HuffPost that Netflix has made no attempt to contact the Royal Family about the matter. The streamer himself, meanwhile, said the offices of Charles and Prince William had been contacted beforehand.
“They really don’t want to be dragged into this for the simple fact that they don’t want to give even more oxygen or publicity to an already high-profile docuseries,” royal pundit Katie Nicholl told ET. . “So I think if they can overcome that untrained, then that’s probably the strategy.”
