37-year-old ‘Partition’ superstar Beyoncé was reportedly NERVOUS about meeting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – Prince Harry, 34, and fellow 37-year-old Meghan Markle!
During an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ 40-year-old comedian Billy Eichner revealed that the ‘intense protocol’ for meeting a member of the Royal Family had everyone, including Beyoncé, very nervous during the European premiere of ‘The Lion King!’ Eichner said during his segment: “We were all kind of nervous, even Beyoncé. What makes you nervous is that the days leading up to it, they email you a protocol of how you’re supposed to greet Prince Harry and Meghan. You’re supposed to say, ‘Your Royal Highness,’ you can’t speak until your hands are in a handshake with his. My plus one … they said he had to stand behind me and not speak unless he was spoken to.”
Host Jimmy Kimmel was so surprised, saying that Meghan and Harry “should be bowing to her (Beyoncé).” Eichner also revealed that he didn’t know how to address Meghan, adding: “Your Highness sounds a little weird and bowing feels weird. In my head, I’m like, ‘What do you call her? I kept thinking she’s Princess Markle, but that sounds like a character on Super Mario Brothers.” Watch below and let us know: ARE YOU SURPRISED BEYONCE WAS NERVOUS ABOUT MEETING MEGHAN MARKLE?
