About

Prince William Explaining to Ayo Edebiri refers to a viral photo of William, Prince of Wales, yelling in the direction of actress Ayo Edebiri (known from The Bear) and three other women (Phoebe Dynevor, Sophie Wilde and Mia McKenna Bruce) at the 2024 BAFTA Awards in London, England. Ayo Edebiri's reaction is a shocked and surprised face with her eyebrows raised and her eyes wide open. The photo went viral on Twitter / X in February 2024, leading to an image caption trend. Many called Edebiri Irish, using her reaction as the Irish reaction to the British. The meme format notably shares similarities to precursors such as Bro Explaining.

Origin

On February 18th, 2024, Getty Images[1] uploaded a photo from photographer Jordan Pettitt showing William, Prince of Wales talking passionately at actresses Phoebe Dynevor, Ayo Edebiri, Sophie Wilde and Mia McKenna Bruce (shown below). Ayo Edebiri's expression is the most recognizable in which she seems visibly shocked with her eyebrows raised and her eyes wide open.
