“We actually have a mutual friend over here in the U.K.,” Arnett told host James Corden, who is English. “His name is Harry, he’s a redhead. Prince Harry, that’s right. I couldn’t think of his first name!”

Arnett explains that the two got to know each other “very briefly” a while ago and as he puts it, forged a strong enough connection that the two kept in touch via text message.

“I was working with my writing partner and we took a break and were walking through Green Park. And we crossed the mall and you could see Buckingham Palace. And I was like, ‘Oh, I should text Prince Harry,’” Arnett humble bragged.

Arnett reveals he sent Prince Harry a text that read, “Hey man. I’m just in London for a few days, and I thought of you, I’m walking in front of your gran’s house.”

While the prince found Arnett’s text pretty humorous, he was unable to meet up at the time.

Arnett discloses that not many people refer to Buckingham Palace as “his gran’s house,” but says Harry was in “Afghanistan or something” because “he’s the real deal, that dude.”

“He’s a real prince of a guy,” he told Corden.
