Paul McCartney Spoofs Royals, Honors John Lennon on ‘SNL’

Sir Paul McCartney

For those who missed it, Sir Paul McCartney visited 30 Rock over the weekend for another outstanding appearance on Saturday Night Live. The Beatles legend was on hand to perform choice cuts from his deluxe Band On the Run reissue, but Macca also joined Seth Meyers during the “Weekend Update” to spoof Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall‘s recent car attack. McCartney’s warbling impression of a worried Camilla is quite hilarious. Check it out:

McCartney offered up his friendly sense of humor during the opening monologue with host Paul Rudd and the “Stumblin’” segment with Rudd and SNL regular Andy Samberg. Nice cowboy shirt, dude.

Fans were treated to five McCartney tunes, including Wings’ “Jet” and “Band On the Run” and the Beatles’ “Get Back”. But Macca’s shining moment came with honoring his late friend and bandmate John Lennon. The world marked the 30th anniversary of Lennon’s death last Wednesday (December 8) and McCartney’s tribute to him with a “A Day in the Life” and the classic “Give Peace a Chance” was really lovely.
