How Billie Eilish broke Royal protocol upon meeting Prince William and Kate

Billie Eilish has admitted she may not have followed royal protocol when she recently met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the London premiere of the film ‘No Time to Die’.

Too Chill to Care

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, Eilish, 19, said she had been given a list of things to do and not to do prior to meeting the royals. But according to the ‘Ocean Eyes’ singer, Prince William and Kate, both 39, were too chill to bother with formalities.

She told Jimmy Kimmel:

I tried to [follow the rules]. I was planning on it. They were just so normal. They didn’t make me feel like, ‘Oh, I’m scared. I can’t talk to them.

Eilish, who co-wrote the latest James Bond film’s theme song, spoke of how excited she was to have met the William and Kate, describing the couple as ‘amazing’.

They were, like, very complimentary, and they had all these questions for me. They were just very friendly and funny and sweet. I can’t complain.
