Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Close to the Royal Family

The British royal family may be all smiles whenever they’re seen out and about attending royal duties but that doesn’t mean they don’t look and sound intensely intimidating.

However, being one of the most powerful and influential clans in the entire world doesn’t mean that they’re better than everyone else.

You know the famous axiom no man is an island? That also applies to the family – but, you’ll be surprised to know that through the years, they have formed a unique bond with the most unexpected people, proving that they are mere mortals just like us.

Rebel Wilson

Believe it or not, Rebel Wilson is friends with one of Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter. Just how close, you may ask — the comedian and Zara Tindall welcomed 2019 together in Sydney with some of their close friends.

Ellie Goulding

Years before Meghan Markle came into the picture, Prince Harry was heavily linked to singer Ellie Goulding, which was further backed by numerous photos of the two being adorable together.

Plus, the blonde artist has been close to the British royal family – in fact, she even attended and performed at Kate Middleton and Prince William’s 2011 wedding.

However, it is worth noting that Ellie isn’t just close with the Duke of Sussex, she is also friends with his sisters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, with the latter being her BFF. Plus, the 29-year-old princess became the bridge between the singer-songwriter and her husband Caspar Jopling.

When the Duchess of Sussex gave birth, everyone was so excited to see (and perhaps hold) the baby. Days after the delivery, the Sussexes finally gave us the first glimpse of Archie Harrison – however, not everyone had the opportunity to get up close to the bundle of joy.

Ellen DeGeneres did, apparently. The philanthropist revealed in her talk show that she met the couple and their son and was even able to hold and feed the baby.

Taylor Swift

Who could ever forget the day Taylor Swift and Prince William met? Back in 2013, the Kensington Palace held a fundraising event for charity, which the Duke of Cambridge hosted.

Photos showed just how the country singer-turned-pop star didn’t look nervous at all in meeting Prince William. Even more, Taylor and the royalty went on stage to perform hit Livin’ On a Prayer with Jon Bon Jovi.

Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello had a wonderful time meeting Kate and Prince William at the Kensington Palace. What better way to make the moment truly memorable than by bringing home memorabilia, right?

So take home a pencil from the palace, she did. But don’t worry, the royal couple wasn’t mad with what she did.
