David Duchovny Once Had To Explain What A ‘Booty Call’ Was To Prince Charles

As Prince Charles gears up for the royal wedding of his youngest son, Prince Harry to American Actress Meghan Markle, it seems some in Hollywood are busy waxing nostalgic over their last royal encounter—or at least the X-Files’ David Duchovny is.

Duchovny recently appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden and decided to spill a little Téa about his ribald royal encounter at Party in the Park in London’s Hyde Park back in 1998. 

Check out the hilarious anecdote for yourself:

Apparently, Duchovny was hanging out with none other than Prince Charles himself at the benefit concert that featured a performance by 90s girl group, All Saints, when the Prince looked befuddled by the lyrics to their song, Bootie Call. After asking the Prince of Wales if he would care for an explanation and forewarning him of its off-color nature—Duchovny was given the go-ahead and launched into a rather circumspect description for His Royal Highness. 

He also shared another adorable story about a confused Prince Charles when it came to some sign wielding fans in the crowd that day and Duchovny’s then-wife, actress Téa Leoni.

Twitter was aflutter:

See footage of Prince Charles and David Duchovny together at the 1998 Prince’s Trust Benefit, Party in the Park, here:

The Prince’s Trust charity was founded in 1976 by Charles, Prince of Wales to help vulnerable young people, many of whom “are in, or leaving, care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law,” to get their lives back on track
