Prince Harry Meets Cedric the Entertainer at Super Bowl After Emmys Roasting

Prince Harry has come face-to-face with Cedric the Entertainer five months after getting a good natured roasting at the Emmys.

The pair met behind the scenes at the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium where they separately watched the Los Angeles Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals.

The royal smiled and shook the stand-up comedian's hand, suggesting he took the September 2021 skit in the light-hearted spirit it was intended.

At the Emmy Awards, host Cedric said during his routine: "As great as The Crown is, it pales in comparison to the real monarchy...

"Ooooh, I mean that Oprah interview with Prince Harry and Meghan. That was the real tea right there, wasn't it!?'

"Meghan must put it on that boy because he renounced his throne quicker than Eddie Murphy in Coming to America.

"I can't believe they were talking about little Archie. How dark that little baby gonna be."

Meghan told Oprah Winfrey an unnamed royal expressed concern about how dark her unborn child's skin might be while she was a working royal.

Cedric added: "They need little Archie! Charles can't dance, who else going to teach them how to TikTok. I can just see it now, baby Archie with the Queen, like come on gammy.

"The whole crown behind them like, 'OK your majesty, I see you.'"

After meeting Harry, the comedian posted a photo of them shaking hands to his 2.8 million Instagram followers alongside a message saying: "EPIC!!! World Championship Rams!!!"

And the official account for his TV show The Neighborhood replied to the post saying: "Okay when's Prince Harry guest starring."

The prince watched the game alongside cousin Princess Eugenie, the first royal publicly confirmed to have visited him since Harry and Meghan moved to California in spring 2020.

The royal cousins wore masks as they were among celebrities including Kanye West, Kendall Jenner, Jay-Z and Justin Bieber to watch the Rams win 23-20.

There may have been much for Harry and Eugenie to talk about as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to confirm whether they will attend a thanksgiving service in memory of Prince Philip at Westminster Abbey in March.

Queen Elizabeth II is also celebrating her Platinum Jubilee over four days in June with no confirmation of whether the Sussexes will attend.

If they do, it will be Elizabeth's first opportunity to meet their daughter Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.

The eight-month-old's name is borrowed from the 95-year-old monarch's childhood nickname within the family.

Harry is also yet to publicly respond to the queen's announcement that she wants Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, to be given the title Queen Consort when husband Prince Charles becomes king.

The policy since the time of their 2005 wedding was that Camilla would be named Princess Consort out of respect for Harry and Prince William's mother Princess Diana.

The duke has not responded to the news though a recent video for the Tackle HIV campaign showed him praising Diana.

He said: "What my mum started all those years ago was creating empathy and understanding but also curiosity and I think that was really powerful to be able to create that curiosity."
