The host of the 63rd annual Grammy Awards Trevor Noah compared the tension among the Grammy nominees to a family reunion at Buckingham Palace. The gag came at the expense of the royal family, which has had a dramatic week since the couple's Winfrey interview aired on March 7.
Trevor Noah took the stage to host the 63rd annual Grammy Awards in person on Sunday. The 37-year-old funnyman entertained the audience at the music's biggest night in Los Angeles, trolling the British royal family seconds into his opening monologue, just one week after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's explosive chat with Oprah Winfrey.
Noah compared the tension among the Grammy nominees to a family reunion at Buckingham Palace.
The South African comedian, television host, and actor pointed to the assembled celebs and quipped that there was, "more tension in that tent than at a family reunion at Buckingham Palace."
“This year’s show is going to look a little different. It’s going to be even more exciting because our nominees will be sitting at those tables for their awards, so right now there’s more tension in that tent than at a family reunion at Buckingham Palace.
Noah also appeared to take a pot shot at the British Prime Minister after Harry Styles took to the stage to perform his single 'Watermelon Sugar'.
He stated: "It’s crazy to think that someone that talented and handsome is from the same place as Boris Johnson."
Noah then added: "Tonight we’re hoping that this is all about what 2021 can be, full of joy, new beginnings, and coming together. Never forgetting what happened in 2020 but full of hope for what is to come."
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently gave a bombshell interview about royal life, aired on CBS on Sunday, March 7.
During the interview, the couple revealed several revelations.
Markle said she had suicidal thoughts after joining the royal family, the pressures of going from being a celebrity actor to becoming a member of the British nobility, her struggles with her mental health, and the scrutiny she fell under from the British tabloid media.
Markle also seemed to suggest that her family had been the victim of racial prejudice from an unnamed member of the Royals, who allegedly raised "concerns" with Harry over the color of their unborn child's skin.
However, Prince William has denied the allegations and insisted that there is no element of racism within the British Royal family.
