Billy Eichner: ‘Even Beyonce’ was nervous about meeting Duchess Meghan

BILLY Eichner said “even Beyonce” was nervous about meeting the Duchess of Sussex.

The 40-year-old actor – who voices Timon in The Lion King – has admitted he and his co-stars were all starstruck when it came to meeting Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan at the movie’s London premiere last week.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live, he said, “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle came, and Beyonce was there, and Sir Elton John was there.

“And I was there, randomly. And it was great, and we were all kind of nervous, even Beyonce.”

When chat show host Jimmy joked that the British royals “should be bowing” to the Formation hitmaker – who plays Nala in Disney’s photo realistic animated remake of the 1994 classic – Billy revealed the stars had “very intense” instructions about the “protocol”. – BANG!
