Kiera Knightley stopped by The Daily Show Monday night, and she and Jon Stewart talked Royal Wedding, obvi.

The host dropped a fun little fact on the movie star.

“We were not even allowed to use the footage from inside the church,” he said. “The royal family had put out, I guess they call them a decree, and they said you are not allowed to use the footage for satirical purposes. … Can you imagine? They made it so you couldn’t make jokes.”

“Did they really? I’m terribly sorry. I feel like I should apologise,” Knightley responded.

Who knew, right?
