During the November episode of the late night talk show, John hosted a fake Royal Watch: News from the Real-Life Crown segment.
Throughout the clip, John joked that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were annoyed by the Covid-19 pandemic because it took attention away from their Megxit “stunt.”
Later into the segment, the comedian said: “I am simple and difficult.”
John gave a rambling speech and often took long pause breaks, while host Seth Meyers asked him to “start again.”
One month after the bizarre segment aired, an insider told Page Six that John was “out of his mind” on substances around the time the segment was filmed.

The source added that his behavior raised huge concerns regarding his health.
The outlet also revealed that John’s close friends- including Pete Davidson and Lorne Michaels- had been encouraging him to get help.
A Saturday Night Live source said: “He has a tight inner circle of friends who have been incredibly supportive [by] encouraging him to get help and [staying] super tight-lipped.
“To everyone else, it wasn’t as clear he was struggling, but he’s been a rock to so many other people that everyone knows that he should get the help he needs.
“Pete and Lorne have been incredibly helpful.”

John recently checked into rehab for a 60-day alcohol and cocaine addiction program in Pennsylvania after “relapsing.”
A source told Page Six: “John’s friends and family are happy that he’s finally getting some help and focusing on his health.
“His fans know he’s struggled in the past with sobriety; he has talked about it openly. Unfortunately, he has struggled again during the pandemic.
“He’s on board with his recovery, he’s not fighting against rehab.”
The comedian has been open about his struggles in the past, which he often referenced in his jokes.

Eagle-eyed fans claimed John and his wife Annamarie Tendler unfollowed each other on Instagram just days before he checked into rehab.
Annamarie then noticeably deactivated her account on December 17.
“Anna removed Mulaney from her Instagram handle and then deleted Instagram,” one fan claimed to Instagram gossip account Deux Moi.
The couple married in 2014 at the Onteora Mountain House in Boiceville.
