Will Arnett travels in some pretty star-studded circles, but who knew he was palling around with royalty?
That’s what the “LEGO Batman” star revealed during a Friday-night visit to “The Late Late Show” revealing to host James Corden that they have a mutual royal acquaintance.
“We actually have a mutual friend over there in the U.K.,” he jokingly told Corden. “His name is Harry, he’s a redhead. Prince Harry, that’s right. I couldn’t think of his first name!”
As Arnett explained, he and Harry met “very briefly” awhile back, but formed enough of a bond that Harry gave the “Flaked” star his cellphone number – which led Arnett to send him a text that last time he was in London.
“I was working with my writing partner and we took a break and were walking through Green Park,” said Arnett. “And we crossed the mall and you could see Buckingham Palace. And I was like, ‘Oh, I should text Prince Harry.’”
So what does one text a royal? “‘Hey man. I’m just in London for a few days and I thought of you, I’m walking in front of your gran’s house,’” Arnett recalled, noting that Harry was amused by his choice of words.
“Not many people have referred to Buckingham Palace as his gran’s house” noted Arnett.
