Jon Hamm Outlines the “Hard and Fast Rules” for Meeting the Royals

“Top Gun: Maverick” premiered in London earlier this month, and that gave JON HAMM the opportunity to meet PRINCE WILLIAM and KATE MIDDLETON.


The thing is, there are certain protocols you should follow when you meet members of the royal family.  On the “Tonight Show” earlier this week, Jon even called them, quote, “hard and fast rules that you are made to follow.”

And yesterday on “Live with Kelly and Ryan”, he explained those rules.  Quote, “You’re meant to say, ‘Your Royal Highness’ . . . if they offer their name, then you can use their name, but you can’t do it first.


“And you can’t offer your hand, they have to offer their hand.  Then you have to bow, but you can’t bow too low.”
