What is the meaning of "brother to prince and fellow to a beggar if he be found worthy"? Does it have to do with the masonic brotherhood and fellowship?

It means that the person has no regard for class, but great regard for character. He would be as close to a prince as a brother, a relationship tie difficult to obtain. He would just as easily be afriend to someone in need, if he was of good character. It's interesting to note that only the beggar has to be found worthy. The masons encourage that kind of brotherhood across class lines as much as any group that charges a membership fee can.
