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.
