Billy Eichner Says Meghan Markle Made Funny Joke About Her Acting Career at 'Lion King' Premiere!

Meghan Markle joked about her acting career with Billy Eichner!

While making an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, the 40-year-old actor-comedian revealed that he and the Duchess of Sussex both attended Northwestern University at the same time, met at the London premiere of Disney’s The Lion King, and exchanged niceties.

“Meghan Markle and I went to Northwestern together and we were both theater majors,” Billy told Seth. “We were both theater majors and we were there at the same time, but we didn’t know each other.”

“In the middle of all that, Meghan and I are having a very casual conversation about who our acting teachers were at Northwestern,” Billy admitted. “She said to me, ‘Congrats on your career,’ and I said, ‘Congrats on your career,’ and she said, ‘Well, it took a little turn’. She had a great sense of humor and they were lovely, very down to earth.”

Billy Eichner also talked about his past work as a bartender at The Lion King on Broadway, and dished about seeing the film with a real audience – Watch below!
