In the edition of the Emmy held this Sunday, the responsibility to exercise host of the evening fell on him comedian Cedric the Entertainer, who did not miss the opportunity to mention the controversial interview that Meghan Markle (40) and the Prince Harry (37) granted to Oprah Winfrey earlier in the year to clarify the reasons why they decided to leave the British monarchy.
“Meghan must be teasing that boy because he resigned his throne faster than Eddie Murphy in ‘Coming to America’ “, assured the presenter as soon as the evening started in his speech opening.
Although he did not go to the extremes of Ricky Gervais, who managed to anger much of Hollywood with his scathing and overly candid comments at various Golden Globes galas, Cedric also dared to to joke about one of the most delicate points of the conversation that Meghan had with her friend Oprah: the alleged concern of the royal family for him skin color that could be inherited by his eldest son Archie.
“They need little Archie! Prince Charles doesn’t know how to dance, who else is going to teach them how to use TikTok?”, Said the comedian before an audience full of stars, among which were some of the protagonists of the series’ The Crown ‘, the series that documents the reign of Elizabeth II and that was the big winner of the night by taking the seven awards to which it opted.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex themselves had also received a nomination in the category of Best Nonfiction Series with Host for their controversial special, but lost to ‘Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy’. Surely they did not care about the whole issue, but even if they were not physically present, they did not stop being mentioned … And that nobody talked about his already famous (and millionaire) cover for Time magazine, which continues to give something to talk about after that they made a strong commitment to Photoshop.
