The butlers joined the film’s cast on the set of the flick at Highclere Castle in Hampshire.

He said: “They were great. Alistair Bruce, who is the historical adviser on this, he has the bible really in terms of etiquette and how people behaved.

“Throughout the TV show he was always there for us. Any questions we had he was always there to answer.”

He added: “But there were a couple of days which he was not available, so he sent a couple of his friends, who happened to be part of the Royal household. It was amazing.

“They were able to help us specifically with how a King and Queen are treated differently to normal members of the aristocracy. They were terribly helpful. ”

However, the two men remained tight lipped when it came to spilling the beans on the royals.

“No, they were very careful and very discreet,” the star said.

Earlier this week, stars from the movie flocked to London’s Leicester Square for the world premiere of the highly-anticipated film.
