Rami Malek Reveals What He Said to Kate Middleton That Caught Her Off Guard

Rami Malek has met the British royal family a few times over the years, and during his latest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, revealed he once asked a question that caused the Duchess Kate Middleton to be taken aback.

About the premiere for No Time to Die, Rami said, “The royals were there and everything. It tells you it’s a special event. A film like Bond deserves something like that. Last time I was there at Royal Albert Hall, it was the BAFTAs, so I had some familiarity with Princess Kate and Prince Will.”

He explained, “What’s fascinating is, they work so hard to get to know everybody—who’s done whatever film they’ve done, their past films. You can see they’ve done their homework. And I just looked at Princess Kate at one point, and I said, ‘This must be exhausting.’ And she said, ‘Why?’”

Rami revealed that at the time, it had been less than a year since she had given birth to the couple’s third child, Prince Louis.

“[I asked,] ‘You just had a baby, right?’ I think she was taken aback,” he said. “She said, ‘How are you doing?’ [I'm like,] ‘No, how are you?’ And in the most regal, elegant way, she gave me a look. But you can tell. Imagine, you’re dressed to the nines, have to talk to all these actors.”

He continued, “They’re so careful. But it was so cool. I think I caught her off guard for a second. And, you know, had that look of—in the most elegant, professional, royal way—’Yes, it’s a lot, having a kid.’”

“The funniest thing about that was, I said, ‘If you ever need a day off, some time off, I’m backup for you,’” he recalled. “She’s like, ‘What do you mean?’ I go, ‘I can babysit, you guys go out, have a good time,’” he added.
