Brad Pitt made an epic joke about Prince Harry's royal exist while his brother Prince William and his wife Catherine were in the audience. 

The 'Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood' actor won 'Best Supporting Actor' at the 2020 British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs), but was unable to attend the ceremony.

Margot Robbie, who was nominated for 'Best Supporting Actress', accepted the award on his behalf.

She shared a special message from Brad that left everyone in stitches  - including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. 

Brad first made a joke about Brexit, which recently saw Britain withdrawing from the European Union. 

"Hey Britain, how did you just become single? Welcome to the club - Wishing you the best with the divorce settlement," Margot read from his speech. 

Margot added that Brad also had something to say about 'Megxit' - which is in reference to Prince Harry and Meghan's decision to step down from senior royal duties

"He also said that he's gonna name this Harry because he's really excited about bringing it back to the States with him."
