Billy Eichner  Says Beyonce Was 'Nervous' to Meet Meghan Markle at 'Lion King' Premiere

“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle came, and Beyonce was there, and Sir Elton John was there. And I was there, randomly,” Billy joked. “And it was great, and we were all kind of nervous, even Beyonce.”

“Really?” Kimmel asked. “They should be bowing to her!”

“That’s true, actually. She’s our American royalty,” Eichner replied. “But what makes you nervous is in the days leading up to it, they email you a protocol of how you’re supposed to greet Prince Harry and they’re very intense about it. I’m not kidding.”

Billy Eichner also talked about getting to sing on the same track as Beyoncé, tweeting at Taylor Swift, and getting temporarily banned from Tinder.
