The meeting between the ultra-famous singer Beyoncé and the no less ultra-famous Meghan Markle during the presentation of the film The Lion King in London has gone around the world, but the apparently peaceful exchange between the two stars was preceded by many nerves.
According to actor Billy Eichner, who voices Timon in the Disney film, the singer was on edge before meeting Prince Harry's wife. During an interview on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! (ABC) Eichner revealed some details of the preparations necessary before an event with British royalty.
"We were all a little nervous, even Beyoncé," confessed the also comedian. "What makes you nervous are the days before the [encounter], they send you an email [with] the protocol of how you should greet Prince Harry and Meghan."
The actor revealed that they had to follow strict instructions that seemed a bit strange to him, so he had to practice before the meeting.
"You're supposed to say, 'His Royal Highness,' you can't speak until your hands are waving at his," she explained.
He also revealed that his companion had to stand behind him and was ordered not to speak to the royal couple, unless he was approached directly, according to PEOPLE.
"I'm not kidding!" Exclaimed the actor. "I said, 'Does that rule also apply to Jay-Z?' I don `t believe. I have a feeling it won't!”
The actor joked with Kimmel about the way he was going to greet Markle and confessed that calling her royalty seemed a bit strange to him.
"In my head, I was wondering, 'what do I call her?' I was thinking about Princess Markle, but that sounds like a character [from the game] Super Mario Brothers,”she said with a laugh. "I was scared [to meet them], [but] they were very very nice and totally down to earth and charming."
After the scare, Eichner was able to relax, as Meghan attended the same university as the actor, so they ended up casually talking about their acting teachers.
