Jon Hamm has shared the strict rules he had to follow when meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The actor stars in the new film Top Gun: Maverick alongside Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Miles Teller.
At the UK premiere in London last week (May 19), the cast met the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as special guests.
At a performance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy FallonHamm revealed that while the couple “couldn’t be nicer,” there were clear standards he had to adhere to.
“There are guidelines that are less guidelines than hard and fast rules that you have to follow when you meet the kings,” he explained. “There’s a bow involved.”
The actor then went on to praise the future monarch’s fashion sense as his shoes were specially themed for the event.
“It was formal wear, so we’re all wearing tuxedos,” Hamm explained. “Prince William wears embroidered F-18 shoes on his tuxedo shoes. Very cool top gun tuxedo shoes.
Fallon later asked if any members of the cast had broken etiquette. Hamm hinted there might have been a few before sharing how charmed Miles Teller was by Williams’ eyes.
“He geeked Prince William’s eyes a little. I remember coming back after that, he said, ‘You’re so blue, I got lost in his eyes.'”
Top Gun: Maverick is now in UK cinemas. You can read The Independent‘s review here.
