Actor Daniel Kaluuya took shots at the British royal family in his opening monologue during his first appearance as a host on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. 

The jab came shortly after the British-born actor  known for his roles in blockbusters such as “Get Out,” “Judas and the Black Messiah” and “Black Panther”  introduced himself to a cheering audience late Saturday.

“First of all, I know you’re hearing my accent and thinking, ‘Oh no. He’s not Black. He’s British,’” he said.

“Let me reassure you that I am Black. I’m Black and I’m British. Basically, I am what the royal family was worried the baby would look like,” Kaluuya added.

Kaaluya’s comments come after Meghan, the Duchess of SussexMeghan MarkleKate Middleton says she has yet to meet Prince Harry and Meghan's daughter Harry and Meghan deny not discussing new daughter's name with the queen Duchess Meghan releases debut children's book MORE, said in a bombshell interview last month with Oprah and her husband, Prince HarryPrince HarryMeghan McCain, Whoopi Goldberg spar over Biden's outburst at CNN reporter Kate Middleton says she has yet to meet Prince Harry and Meghan's daughter Harry and Meghan deny not discussing new daughter's name with the queen MORE, that there were discussions in the royal family about “how dark” her son was going to be before he was born.

Kaluuya then began to discuss racism in the United States.

"People ask me, 'What’s worse, British racism or American racism?'" Kaluuya said before adding to laughs from the audience, "British racism is so bad white people left."

"They wanted to be free, free to create their own kind of racism," Kaluuya continued. "That’s why they invented Australia, South Africa and Boston."

Kaluuya, who is of Ugandan descent, also joked afterward about his background.

“Anyone from Uganda here?” he asked the audience, from which a few cheers could be heard in response. “That’s my auntie. Yes, she is here.” 

He and the audience laughed before he said he had his “big Ugandan family here.” 

“My mom is one of 22 kids, and my dad is one of 49,” he said. “My family's sperm is literally about that life. They say Black don’t crack, but condoms do.”
