The 58-year-old even joked about the possibility of royalty joining the show’s line-up, as he said: “And before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a ‘Royal-Mother-To-Be’ runway challenge.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race is a U.S. reality show where RuPaul searches for America’s next drag superstar.
Each year the programme follows 14 drag queens to compete for the fab prize of a ‘sickening supply’ of cosmetics and $100,000.
