London, Feb 6 (ANI): Prince William is said to have watched a violent Bond film that was rated as suitable for those above 15 at the age of 8.
William, 27, had been given the 007 movie 'Licence To Kill', in which a villain's head explodes, another is crushed by an industrial grinder and a third is impaled on a forklift, by his chauffeur Stephen Davies.
Davies, who knew the Prince was a big fan of the secret agent, gave him the blockbuster as a birthday present.
William is said to have sent Davies, who worked for the Royal Family during the 1980s and 1990s, a thank you letter.
"Dear Steve, Thank you for the James Bond video, it is brilliant. Thank you. See you soon. With love from William," the Sun quoted the letter as stating.
The British Board of Film Classification confirmed it is not illegal for under-age children to watch 15 films at home. It is only illegal for them to see it in a cinema or rent a video.
Davies kept all the letters and cards that were sent to him by Charles, Diana, Harry and Wills and is putting up them for auction.
A letter from Prince Harry about a present said: "I love the video and sweets. Love from Harry".
The letters, which also include a Christmas card from Harry, are to be sold at auction on February 13. They are expected to fetch 900 pounds each.
"The letters paint a lovely picture, especially of Prince William watching the James Bond film," Richard Davie, from International Autograph Auctions, said.
"Letters from Prince William are rare and don't come on the market very often," he added. (ANI)
