Ryan Reynolds Jokes About Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Exit

We're cringing. 😬

  • Ryan Reynolds just poked fun at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during an episode of his game show, Don't.
  • Ryan and host Adam Scott laughed about one of the questions in the episode.

Leave it to Ryan Reynolds to make Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal exit (opens in new tab) the butt of a joke. During the "Don't Get Tired" segment in the July 9 episode of his game show, Don't, there was an outdated question that caused some laughter between producer Ryan and host Adam Scott.

"Meghan Markle went from Suits to crowns  (opens in new tab)after she married into the royal family," Adam read. The camera then panned away so he could tweak the second part of the question. "Before she resigned, what was her official title?" he asked.

He read four possible answers: "Was it A. Countess of Cambridge, B. Duchess of Wessex, C. Duchess of Cornwall, or D. Duchess of Sussex?" That's when Ryan joked, "Or E. we taped this show seven months ago." Awkward.

The contestants still guessed the incorrect answer (we guess not everyone keeps up with royal news). They chose "Duchess of Cornwall (opens in new tab)," which of course is so very wrong. Prince Charles' wife, Camilla, holds that title. While, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle remain the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, they both prefer to be called Meghan and Harry.

According to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab)during a summit in Edinburgh, host Ayesha Hazarika told the audience: "He's made it clear that we are all just to call him Harry. So ladies and gentlemen, please give a big, warm, Scottish welcome to Harry."

Meghan and Harry revealed in January that they would be giving up their royal duties in favor of living and working in North America. They currently reside in Los Angeles with their adorable son, Archie, and are dedicated to living a normal life.
