‘Prince Harry is incredibly brave,’ says James Corden
In 2018, James Corden’s trademark segment Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney was the most viewed YouTube clip of the year, beating out the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
On the subject of which James, as is well known, has befriended the Duke of Sussex and his actress wife.
In something of a television coup, this past February, Harry appeared on top of a double-decker bus to be interviewed by the 43-year-old comedian.
In the segment, Harry rapped to the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air theme song, FaceTimed Meghan and cursed as he was driven around Los Angeles, drinking cups of tea.
Within minutes, clips of their pleasant conversation went viral.
James and his wife, Julia Carey, who have three children, Carey, Max and Charlotte, live just 90 minutes from Harry and Meghan’s sprawling Montecito mansion.
So, does the foursome socialize? Have you been to the couple’s £11million home?
“I have,” he says. “It was more of a play date kind of scenario. [with the kids]. We then went out for dinner afterwards, it was lovely. Obviously I won’t tell you more. Obviously.”
He continues: “Look, I’m a big fan of both of them. Obviously I know Harry better than Meghan, but I think it’s really hard to judge or judge.”
Corden added: “I have great respect and admiration for Harry, and anyone who has been around him and spent time with him would feel exactly the same way.
“I think he is a devoted and loving husband and father and I think what they have done [in turning away from royal life] He is incredibly brave and I will always be in his corner.
“I have nothing but admiration and respect for them. I think it’s impossible to judge any of that really.”
