Russell Brand Gets ‘Giddy’ Over the Royals on ‘Conan’

 With the world still chattering away about Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal engagement, Russell Brand was a guest on Conan on Wednesday night (November 17), where he shared a few bits and bobs about the British Monarchy.

The 35-year-old British comedian and actor, who also showed off his sparkly new wedding band, is seemingly a royal expert in his own right. Brand joked that he is "a subject of the British crown" and only he could be the one to "clear up some of this hullabaloo".

"The aristocracy are planning to clatter their genitals at each other, but first they swap expensive jewels. It is a custom. Then there will be a new king!" Brand teased.

When describing meeting select members of the Royal Family, Brand is classic in recalling being introduced to Queen Elizabeth (just watch) and shaking Prince Charles's hand. But he also chats about working with another "Queen" a.k.a. Dame Helen Mirren in The Tempest, opening next month. Typical hilarity with hints of sexual innuendo ensued, of course.
