Billie Eilish has opened up about her introduction to members of the British royal family, with the singer revealing that she might have damaged some royal protocols.
On 28 September, the 19-year-old Happier Than Ever singer attended the London premiere of the James Bond movie No Time To Die, the place she and her brother Finneas O’Connell had been launched to Prince William and Kate Middleton, and the duke’s father, Prince Charles and his spouse, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
While Eilish described the chance as “amazing”, she admitted that she might have unintentionally damaged a number of the guidelines she was anticipated to comply with throughout her meeting with the royals.
The singer shared the admission throughout an look on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the place she was requested by host Jimmy Kimmel whether or not she’d been knowledgeable of protocol for meeting royals forward of the premiere.
“Oh yeah. There was a whole list of things,” Eilish confirmed, to which Kimmel requested: “Did you pay attention to those rules?”
After Eilish shook her head and mouthed “no” in response to the query, she defined that she had tried to comply with protocol, however had been distracted by the normalcy and friendliness of the royal family.
“But I tried to. I was planning on it and they were just so normal, like they didn’t make me feel like: ‘Oh, I’m scared, I can’t talk to them,’” Eilish defined. “They were very complimentary and they had all these questions for me and they were just very friendly and, like, funny and sweet.
“I don’t know, I can’t complain, it was amazing.”
Although Eilish didn’t specify which guidelines she might have damaged, in accordance to the royal family’s web site, there are “no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting the Queen or a member of the royal family”.
However, the web site notes that people might need to observe the normal types of introduction, which features a neck bow for males, whereas girls can do a small courtesy.
“Other people prefer simply to shake hands in the usual way,” the web site continues, with a photograph taken of Eilish meeting the Duchess of Cambridge displaying that the singer opted to comply with the much less formal technique of introduction.
Eilish and her songwriting companion wrote the title monitor for the brand new James Bond movie, which the pair received a Grammy for in March.
