In his recent interview at "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Malek said meeting the royal couple at the premiere was like meeting old friends. He shared about the first time he met them at an awards event in 2019. Malek said:

"I just looked at Princess Kate at one point, and I said, 'This must be exhausting.' And she said, 'Why?' [I asked,] 'You just had a baby, right?' I think she was taken aback."

On why Malik became concerned about Middleton's well-being at the time, the Egyptian-American actor explained that the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth in 2018 to her third child, Prince Louis.

He recalled that after he made that comment, Middleton just gave him a look in the most elegant way and asked him how he was instead of responding to his remark.

While his conversation with Middelton appeared funny, Malek is known for portraying roles with dark personalities.
