Prince William may be far away from home, but he got to see a familiar face while in China: Paddington Bear!
The Duke of Cambridge met the furry character while attending the premiere of the film in Shanghai, China. The two famous Brits shook hands (and paw) causing William to reveal that he is a big fan and even joke that his son Prince George would envy him.
The prince is currently on a tour of China and saw more than one reminder of home. William took time on Tuesday to admire the David Bailey Portrait of the Queen as he visited the GREAT British Festival of Creativity in Shanghai. He is the most senior royal to visit China since the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visited in 1986.
While at the festival, the 32-year-old also met with paraplegic Sophie Morgan, who showed the Prince how she could walk using a Rex Robot and William also took a spin on a Brompton Bicycle. And continuing to show off his sporty side, the future king of England kicked around some soccer balls at the Premier Skills Football Event.
Still to come for the royal, who is on day seven of his official tour of Asia, is a trip to the Yunnan province where 250 wild Asian elephants still roam free. He's already visited the Forbidden City and the British Ambassador's official residence in Beijing and spent four days in Japan checking out various cultural spots throughout the country.
