The comedian, 40, nervously recited the ideal greeting for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex while practicing saying the flawless line with Seth.

This isn't the first time that the rappers have fan-girled over actress turned royal!

'And she was a theatre major, I was a theatre major and so when I met her the other night all we did is have this unusual casual conversation about our acting teachers.

Beyonce, who attended the premiere with husband Jay-Z, also looked lovely as she rocked a floor-length peephole dress.

According to The Daily Mail's royal correspondent Rebecca English, the father of three children told the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that he should always make time for time for himself. The worldwide singer went on to congratulate the couple on the birth of their little one.

Despite worlds colliding when music royalty met actual royalty, sources told Entertainment Tonight that Beyonce and Jay-Z actually breached royal protocol with their appearance at the premiere - when they arrived after Meghan and Harry.

So what did these two power couples discuss on the red carpet?

However, judging by Meghan and Harry's conversation with the Carters, they were none the wiser to the breech in protocol. They don't come on every trip. Videos from the premiere night showcased Queen Bey excited and nervous over meeting the royal family members.

"They keep their hands in place as they part to talk, with their left hands clasped and performing the kind of judder that is a strong tie-sign of mutual friendship".

What did you think about Meghan Markle and Beyoncé's meeting?

Pharrell isn't the first celebrity to show his support for the duchess, as Oprah previously said in an interview that she thought Markle was "being portrayed unfairly."

She didn't even seem to realise that Beyonce had managed to manoeuvre herself into the more dominant position - making sure her face could be seen on camera while Meghan was eclipsed. There was an adorable moment when The Duchess grabbed and squeezed Beyoncé's lower arm as if to say "WE'RE GUNNA BE BFFS I JUST KNOW IT".
