I Can’t Stop Laughing At These Prince William And Ayo Edebiri Memes

The Prince of Wales and the Queen of Ireland have finally met — and the photo of their interaction will live rent-free in my mind forever. If you don’t know your royals, SMH, but I’m referring to Prince William and Ayo Edebiri, of course. The introduction we’ve all been waiting for took place at the 2024 BAFTA Awards, which were held in London on February 18. Somehow, the prince ended up in a conversation with the rising star award nominees, Ayo, Phoebe Dynevor, Sophie Wilde, and Mia McKenna-Bruce. I feel confident he hasn’t seen any of their work.

Ayo, who famously starred in The Banshees of Inisherin as Jenny the Donkey, *allegedly* “got really in character” when she *allegedly* filmed the movie in Ireland for four months. (This is an iconic joke that began on her Letterboxd account and made it all the way to her Critics Choice Awards speech and now these memes.) In the viral photo of the prince and the actresses, Ayo’s eyebrows are raised high and her eyes are super wide. To no one’s surprise, Betches fans have come up with some of the funniest captions for it. These creative Prince William and Ayo memes really have me nonstop giggling over here.

I sincerely hope William is not wandering around Kensington Palace giving his staff lectures like this… but also, I can see it.

Dying to know how the introduction to Kate’s friends went. I can’t exactly imagine William being super smooth.

“Ireland’s Princess trying her hardest not to end the colonizer” – @kangakzoo

You can see the urge she gets to stand up for her people. Just out here doing her royal duties!

He might actually win an Oscar for his explanation.

Yes, it’s totally giving uncle/niece energy.

I can’t read the others as well, but I’d say Ayo is very invested.

Prince William? No, you’re confused. That’s TikTok sensation Harry Daniels.
