Taylor Swift met Prince William at the Winter Whites Gala in Aid of Centrepoint at Kensington Palace in London on Tuesday evening, and even though she's one of the most successful singers in the world, even she was a little bit starstruck!

"Oh my God, this is so incredibly exciting to be performing at Kensington Palace," she gushed to Us Weekly. "With the snow, the lighting, the decorations, it's all so Christmas-y. It's kind of surreal, right? I'm at a palace! I'm just soaking it all in. It's going to be a great night."

When asked whether she was nervous about performing, she joked, "I try not to think about that!" Swift sang "Trouble," "Love Story" and "Fifteen," but not before taking the stage with Wills and Jon Bon Jovi for an impromptu performance of "Living On A Prayer." Check out the video below!



This was her first royal engagement, and after meeting the Duke of Cambridge, she told reporters, "He's so funny! I was really happy he was funny."

Before she performed Taylor told the crowd of 600 people, "I have to thank you, Prince William, for having me. It’s amazing. To call attention to this age group especially, teens and young adults." Centrepoint "is the UK's leading charity for homeless young people, supporting 16-25 years olds with housing, learning, health and life skills," according to their website.

All aboard! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge rode a classic 1960s Routemaster bus to surprise military personnel and volunteers who were supporting the Royal British Legion for Poppy Day. The couple took a five minute bus ride from Kensington Palace to High Street Kensington station, where thousands of RBL supporters congregated, and were joined by famous British "Carry On" actress Barbara Windsor, who is the Poppy Day Ambassador.

Poppy Day (or more formally know as Remembrance Day) has been a a memorial day since World War I to remember the members of British Commonwealth's armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

While on the short ride, the Barbara Windsor asked about the Prince George, to which Kate replied, "He's half asleep," and William added, "He's behaving himself this morning."

After disembarking the bus, William and Kate were met by the excited Poppy Day crowds. The duo greeted and spoke with volunteers, Poppy Girls, military personal and other supporters.

For the public event, Kate wore a coat by LK Bennett and William, who recently left his position as a search and rescue pilot, opted for a classic navy suit. Both Royals wore the iconic red Poppy Day pins to show their support for the fallen troops.

Prince William made his first TV appearance since the July 22 birth of Prince George and said Kate Middleton is a "fantastic" mom, Sunday night with CNN's Max Foster.

Sitting in a quiet garden at Kensington Palace, the 31-year-old future King described the day after little George's birth, when he and Kate presented their son to the world just outside the hostpital's front door, walking to the crowd, waving and talking to fans:

    "I was on such a high anyway, and so was Catherine about George, that really we were happy to show him off to whoever wanted to see him,. As any new parent knows, you’re only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best looking or the best everything. I'm just glad he wasn’t screaming his head off the whole way through!"

The new dad said baby George doesn't like to sleep, unfortunately:

    "... he's a little fighter. He kind of, he wriggles around quite a lot. And he doesn't want to go to sleep that much, which is a little bit of a problem."

And on fatherhood changing the future Prince's perspective ...

    "The last few weeks for me have been a very different emotional experience, something I never thought I would feel myself. And I find, again it's only been a short period, but a lot of things affect me differently now."

Prince William's Passion: New Father, New Hope premieres on CNN on September 15 at 10 pm ET.

On Tuesday evening Kate Middleton and Prince William exited St. Mary's Hospital in London, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave the world their first glimpse at the future king of England.

"Its a special time for any parent," a glowing Middleton told reporters. "I'll remind him of his tardiness when he's a bit older," William joked. "He's got her looks, thankfully. I know how long you all have been waiting out here ... He's taken his first nappie already. He's got way more hair than me. Thank God!"

Middleton held on to their newborn son and then passed the heir to the throne to William as photographers snapped away.

Kate Middleton checked into the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in Paddinton, west London at 6am and Prince William is at her side, royal family has confirmed.

A spokesperson for Kensington Palace has said "Kate went into labor naturally and things are progressing well."

Though Middleton's due date was previously said to be last weekend, a source told The Telegraph that staffers at St. Mary's had been prepped for a July 19th date.

“A small number of staff at St. Mary’s who might be called upon when the Duchess gives birth were told they had to remain teetotal for a month before the due date,” the insider told the British tabloid. ”They were told the due date was July 19, meaning they couldn’t drink from June 19 onwards. Only a handful of people were told because there are very few hospital staff who might be needed in the case of an emergency.”
