They are clothes fit for a killing – and perhaps now a future king.

A pair of the cartoon children’s pyjamas created for Villanelle, the murderous anti-heroine of BBC’s hit drama Killing Eve, were presented to Prince William yesterday.

The prince – who was opening a new exhibition celebrating award-winning films and television programmes – is a fan of the show.

The pyjamas featured at the start of the second series, when Jodie Comer’s assassin steals them from a child while escaping from a hospital.

But William might not find they are a perfect fit. Only a few pairs were made, in small, medium and large, and the prince got the last pair in medium. 

Killing Eve producer Sally Woodward Gentle said: ‘They are meant to be worn quite small.

'But they are adult-sized. We had a few made up, and that’s the last pair.’

William, who joked he felt ‘under-dressed’ before the Villanelle outfits, also saw exhibits from other shows, including children’s classic The Clangers, at the Bafta exhibition in Piccadilly, central London.

Daniel Postgate, son of show creator Oliver, gave William a pink Clanger as a gift for Princess Charlotte.
