Rowan Atkinson is considered to be one of the funniest people in this world. There barely are any people who are not Mr. Beans‘ fans. There is a huge list of his fans and that includes the British Royal Family. Surprisingly, this star is very close to the Royal Family of Britain too. The fun part is, according to Mr. Bean, the British Royal Family is an abundant source of comedy.
Although he says that the family inspires him a lot, on the contrary, thinks that a lot of funny content can be created on them, or inspired by them. In fact, in his 2011 hit Johnny English: Reborn, he made fun of the queen. Even after that, the actor was invited to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan.
Rowan Atkinson got the invitation to the wedding of Harry and Meghan
Atkison has always had a great relationship with King Charles’ family and has been getting invited to their family functions every now and then. But in the year 2011, Atkinson’s Johnny English: Reborn was released. And the actor played a faulty secret agent who causes chaos all the time. In the same link, his alter ego in the film knocks down the queen after confusing her for a killer.
However, he said that he is a bit concerned about that sequence and also said that it was a last-minute addition. He thought that this will be a good idea for the ending as they did not have any. But he also adds that he has been making jokes about the queen for 30 years.
Even after all this, he was invited to the wedding. Given that he is close friends with King Charles. Also, the Royal Family must have taken it as humor as they did not raise any issue. He was asked to wear a proper tuxedo to the wedding. Not only that, according to Marie Claire, he was also asked to keep his facial expression more sensible.
There was no news about him the next day after the wedding so it is hoped that he behaved as asked. For all those who want to watch it, Johnny English: Reborn is available on Netflix.
