Meghan Markle, Prince Harry visit Yankees, Red Sox before first London game As the Red Sox and Yankees prepared for their first game in London, they chatted with a pair of local fans: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited both teams in their respective clubhouses before Saturday's games and received gifts for their newborn son, Archie. The Red Sox gave them a team onesie and a small red bat, while the Yankees' primary gift was a baby-sized jersey with "Archie" embroidered across the back.

They were two young theater majors at Northwestern University, but Meghan Markle and Billy Eichner’s paths would eventually go in vastly different directions.

While one went on to build a successful comedy and acting career before voicing Timon in the new The Lion King remake, the other put aside her acting career to marry Prince Harry -- then attend Eichner’s Lion King premiere as a royal!

After crossing paths on the red carpet, Eichner opened up about his special moment with Markle while reflecting on how different their lives turned out.

“Meghan and I both went to college together -- we were both theater majors at Northwestern,” Eicher told Today With Hoda and Jenna. “We didn’t know each other when we were there, but we were there at the same time.”

‘The Lion King’: How Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen Put Their Own Spin on Timon and Pumbaa

‘The Lion King’: How Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen Put Their Own Spin on Timon and Pumbaa They may preach “Hakuna Matata,” but Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen certainly felt anxious about taking on the roles of Timon and Pumbaa in the live-action remake of “The Lion King.” The carefree meerkat and warthog were key ingredients in the original 1994 movie’s success, stealing scenes with their antics. But the chance to join a cast that includes Beyoncé and Donald Glover and the opportunity to appear in a film that’s expected to be one of the biggest hits of the summer proved irresistible. “The Lion King,” featuring state-of-the-art computer wizardry, hits theaters on July 19.

Eichner, 40, then explained what was happening while being shown a video clip of the two at the glitzy premiere.

“In the middle of this huge royal premiere you’re looking at, right there we’re having a very casual conversation about our acting teachers at Northwestern,” he said.

After giving a shout-out to his and Markle’s old teachers, Eichner then shared what Markle had to say when he brought up her acting.

“She said to me, ‘Congrats on your career,’ and I said, ‘Congrats on your career,’ and she said, ‘Well, things took a little turn,’” Eichner said, bursting into hysterics. “A great turn! It worked out for everyone.”

“She was lovely, and they were so cool and down to earth,” he continued. “You would never know that they’re royals.”

During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Eichner admitted how nervous the whole cast was leading up to meeting the royals.

"We were all kind of nervous, even Beyoncé,” he said. “What makes you nervous is in the days leading up to it, they email you a protocol of how you're supposed to greet Prince Harry and they're very intense about it. I'm not kidding."

"You're supposed to say, 'Your Royal Highness,’” he continued. “You can't speak until your hands are in a handshake with his. They said [my guest] had to stand behind me and not speak unless he was spoken to. I'm not kidding. I was like, 'Does that same rule apply to JAY-Z?' I have a feeling it doesn't."
