Cedric the Entertainer wasn’t afraid to go there when it came to making Prince Harry and Meghan Markle jokes while hosting the 2021 Emmys on September 19. He began by talking about one of Netflix’s biggest hits, “The Crown,” and that now infamous sit-down Meghan and Harry did with Oprah Winfrey in March.
“As great as ‘The Crown’ is, it pales in comparison to the real monarchy. I mean, that Oprah interview with Prince Harry and Meghan. That was the real tea right there, wasn’t it!?” he teased (via Metro).
Cedric also mentioned the couple’s shocking claim that a royal family member had discussed Archie’s skin color before his birth. “Meghan must put it on that boy because he renounced his throne quicker than Eddie Murphy in ‘Coming to America,’” The comedian laughed. “I can’t believe they were talking about little Archie. How dark that little baby gonna be.”
The star went on to claim that the royals “need little Archie” because “[Prince] Charles can’t dance,” quipping, “Who else going to teach them how to TikTok I can just see it now, baby Archie with the queen, like come on Gammy.” He joked about Queen Elizabeth II getting down with her great-grandson, teasing, “The whole crown behind them like, ‘Okay Your Majesty, I see you!’”
We can’t lie. The queen getting down to Pia Mia’s “Do It Again” is something we’d love to see.
