HOLLYWOOD actor Eddie Redmayne has revealed a young Prince William used to be a target when they studied at Eton together. The Fantastic Beasts star went to the prestigious college with the dad of three, who is five months younger than him. The 36-year-old appeared on US chat show, Watch What Happens, to plug his latest film, The Crimes of Grindelwald. But the conversation soon turned to his schooldays with the royal.
