Blunt: Royals are like A-listers

Emily Blunt thinks royals are like famous actors

Emily Blunt thinks royals have a lot in common with most A-list stars.

"I wonder if royal families are actually like actors because they've got this mystique about them," the actress pondered in Hollywood.

The 27-year-old Young Victoria star got to experience yet another regal role playing a princess in her new movie Gulliver's Travels.

She said: "You wonder what they actually do behind closed doors and then you meet them and you realise they're just normal people. I think it's quite a task being a royal because you have to be on all the time, it must be a strange experience."

The actress, who married American actor John Krasinski in 2010, revealed she's been lucky enough to hang out with several of the royals in recent years.

"I met Prince Harry and Prince William at a polo match which was pretty cool and I realised how normal they are. I also worked with Princess Beatrice who was in the young Victoria with me because her mother, the Duchess of York, produced the movie - so I've met a few," she revealed.

:: Gulliver's Travels is in cinemas now.
