The X-Files star once found himself seated next to the royal at a concert. During the show, the band All Saints performed their hit song "Booty Call."
"I saw Prince Charles looking kind of perplexed," Duchovny said on The Late Late Show with James Corden. "And he said … 'Booty call?' And I said, ‘Well, I can explain it to you, it's a little off-color, but I can do it.' And he said, 'Yes, please.'"
"I said, 'Well, it's when a man or a woman calls a man or a woman to come to their home late at night for the express purpose of getting together and then leaving right afterwards. And he said, 'Oh.'"
ALLISON JANNEY MET PRINCESS KATE WHILE BAREFOOT
Janney met both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the BAFTAs in 2018. The actress had taken off her painful heels prior to being introduced to the royals, who were then awaiting the birth of their third child, Prince Louis.
"I did meet Kate and William, and she was in her heels and pregnant, so I felt like a bit of a wimp that I was there in my bare feet," Janney said on The Late Late Show. "I told her that I was in bare feet and I told her that she should take her shoes off 'cause she's pregnant. It was an awkward moment. I called her 'honey,' and that might not have been royal protocol."

During the encounter, Williams did something even more shocking: Ask the royal about her famous sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
"She was surprised that I asked her about her ring and she was like, 'You know?' And I'm like, 'Everyone in America knows about your ring!' She was like, 'Wow,'" Williams said, adding, "She was super sweet, super level, so beautiful — she was really nice."

In 2013, the Reputation singer attended a charity event at Kensington Palace. As Bon Jovi performed the classic song, Prince William escorted her to the stage to join in on the fun.
"Jon Bon Jovi was about to sing 'Livin On a Prayer,' and he kinda pointed at Prince William and said something like, 'I hear you like to do this at karaoke night, karaoke boy,'" Swift shared on The Graham Norton Show.
"He starts the song and Prince William looks over at me and says like, 'I don't remember it now, it's all gone now,' kinda freaking out a little bit. And he just looks at me and he's like, you gotta go with me," she continued. "I died."
