Tom Hardy was one of the many celebrity guests who attended Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding and has enjoyed a close friendship with Harry for many years.
And in an old interview with Esquire magazine, Tom has opened up about his relationship with Prince Harry, branding him a “legend.”
Tom added that their friendship was “deeply private,” but revealed just how much Harry means to him by telling the publication that he had flown from New Orleans – where he had been filming Fonzo – to attend his big day in May. Tom and Harry became good friends after the actor became an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust in 2010.
Since Tom Hardy and Prince Harry are close, it makes sense that Tom and Harry’s brother, Prince William, are also friends. In fact, the threesome reportedly even shot a scene in Star Wars: The Last Jedi together! Unfortunately, People reports that the scene was ultimately deleted from the final cut of the film.

Harry and Meghan both have a close-knit circle of friends who are careful not to talk too much about them in public, but from the little that has been said, they are known for being incredibly down-to-earth.

Tom is a celebrated celebrity in Britain and has even been honoured by the Queen herself. “Hardy may be an accomplished actor in the U.S., but in his home country, he’s a national treasure. He was awarded the title Commander of the Order of the British Empire, which, while not as prestigious as knighthood, is on the same scale” (via Esquire).
