Miles Teller says he broke protocol when he met Prince William and Kate Middleton: ‘I screwed up right away’
Miles Teller said he broke protocol when he crossed paths with the Duke and Duchess of Wales, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The 35-year-old actor, who can be seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, talked about meeting the royal couple in London last May during a Royal Film Performance screening for his film Top Gun: Maverick.
Teller, who Lt. Bradley “Rooster” starred Bradshaw in the film, said he and his fellow cast members were given a list of “rules of do’s and don’ts,” joking, “There’s a lot of etiquette… or had a sheet so I wouldn’t mess it up. ‘

But Teller made a mistake because he said, “I screwed up right away: you’re not supposed to put out your hand right away unless they do.”
“But I felt the vibe, so I’m like, ‘I’m going in, I’m going in.'”
The Whiplash star called the royal couple “very disarming” in meeting them.
“I was lost,” he said. “In the eyes of Prince William… I mean, as blue as the bluest ocean, Jimmy, what do you want? Bora Bora… and Kate is beautiful and very warm and holding herself so well, yes, regal… but with William I don’t know, I blacked out.’
