William later joked to council workers that the Queen’s beloved corgis now had “competition” from one of Britain’s best loved cartoon figures, adding: “It is very comforting that people care.”

Meanwhile, Simon, who confirmed that he didn’t participate in sending the gifts, nevertheless said he loved the “Britishness” of the gesture.

The star has taken on an entirely different role since Paddington, playing the fictional Tory MP Julian Fawcett in the BBC drama Ghosts.

He admitted that his depiction of the MP, who was found dead following a sex game gone wrong, was inspired in part by real-life politicians.

“Very early on, when we decided on this politician character, I had an impression of Tony Blair that I used to annoy my wife with, so [my inspiration] was a bit Tony Blair and a bit David Cameron,” he told the Radio Times.
