The 'Lion King' Stars Were Given These Royal Protocol Rules Ahead of Meeting Prince Harry & Meghan Markle!

Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen dished on the royal protocol rules they were given ahead of meeting Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle at the premiere of their film, The Lion King.

“You’re given a lot of protocol to follow which is unusual,” Seth said while making an appearance on UK’s This Morning. “Respect their personal space. They’re the only people I’ve met who come with protocol so that was interesting. And then I think what we were trying to gauge is how many people were following the protocol and how strict the protocol is.”

“I assume you get put in the Tower Of London if it all goes wrong. I’ve got to think of the repercussions. I’d like to come back here one day,” he added.

Billy then added, “Like Seth said, they tell you you’re supposed to say your Royal Highness, you can’t speak until your hands are locked together in a handshake and all these crazy things, and I didn’t know how much you were supposed to follow that so I started panicking. We were watching what our friend Keegan (Keegan-Michael Key) did and he did none of the protocol either and just kind of nodded his head, then it all fell apart.”

If you missed it, Billy revealed what he spoke about with Duchess Meghan Markle.
