Son of The Queen's Employee Cast in 'William & Kate'

February 4, 2011 (6:31 am) GMT
Richard Reid, actor son of the Royal chief accountant, has nabbed the role of Prince William's pal, Guy Pelly.

The actor son of The Queen's chief accountant Sir Alan Reid has joined the cast of the upcoming "" TV movie - as Prince William's best pal Guy Pelly. Richard Reid originally auditioned for the role of the prince, but that part went to fellow newcomer Nico Evers-Swindell.

Reid admits he was relieved when he learned he wouldn't be playing the grandson of his father's boss - because he fears he would have had to turn the part down. He explains, "It probably wasn't a role I'd be able to do at the end of the day. I think my dad would have stepped in and put the brakes on it."

Reid admits he has never met Pelly, but he hopes William's pal likes his portrayal: "He sounds like a lot of fun. He's definitely the kind of person I would like to spend a night with drinking."
