Taylor Swift hangs with Prince William
Taylor Swift thinks Prince William is "so cool" after she attended a charity event at his home, and sang on stage with the second in line to the throne.
The singer was a guest at Kensington Palace on Tuesday night, where William was hosting the event in honour of his youth homelessness charity, Centrepoint.
Swift was there to help raise awareness for the charity and said she found William "awesome" and "so cool".
"He was very funny. I was really happy he was funny," Swift told the Huffington Post.
"I am so excited. I don't think I have ever played in a palace before. So it will be really wonderful," she added. "This evening is so special... it is for a charity that as well as being very important to Prince William is also very important to me."
The pair got up on stage with veteran rocker Jon Bon Jovi, and sang Living on a Prayer with him. In a clip on YouTube the prince is seen belting out the chorus with Swift, while Bon Jovi plays the guitar.
Swift was overwhelmed by the beauty of Kensington Palace, describing it as a winter wonderland. According to Swift, she was lucky just to be present.
"It's positively magical here," the country star said. "There are fairy lights and there is fake snow falling from the sky and everything is just gorgeous. I am just very lucky to be here."
Bon Jovi was thrilled to be part of the event. The rocker believes youth homelessness to be a serious issue.
"What's important for me is to help break the cycle that leads to poverty," the Bon Jovi singer said. "And to be invited to highlight it in such illustrious surroundings couldn't be better."
Prince has been a patron of Centrepoint since 2005. His late mother Princess Diana was also a patron of the charity.
