15. He Went to School With Prince William

Pretend as we may that the Royal family is boring nowadays, the world is still obsessed with them. So the fact that Eddie went to school with Prince William is something fascinating in itself. Granted, we don’t know much about their relationship but how amazing is that?

The thing about the Royal family and all the popularity and media attention surrounding them is that any connection celebrities have to them is fascinating. And for someone like Eddie, it is so sweet because he doesn’t try to capitalize on it.

Most people would flaunt the fact that they knew Prince William. Granted, he might not have known him at all, but people would lie and say they were close friends. But not Eddie. It is just a simple fact about him. He just happened to go to the same school as the prince.

It is nothing more and nothing less (that we know of) and it is amazing that Eddie just lets it be. It says a lot about him as a person. He doesn’t really talk about it and doesn’t try and gain anything from it. It is just something cool that happened that he’ll remark on if asked but nothing more.
