The Senorita singer revealed she took the pencil from Kensington Palace after being dared by BBC Radio 1 host Greg James

“I haven’t mentioned this story at all because you told me not to. We’re in Kensington Palace for the Teen Hero Awards,” Greg said in an interview with Camila on Radio 1 yesterday. “We were about to meet William and Kate, and I said ‘you’ve got to steal something, steal that pencil.'”

“I was like you triple doggy dare me?” Camilla said – which Greg admitted to doing. “You can’t not do a triple doggy dare. If there’s anything I’ve learnt in my life it’s that, so I did it.”

“And then you, to one of the Palace people, called me out on it and you were like ‘she stole a pencil’, and I was like oh my God,” she continued, before apologising. “I am sorry William and I am sorry Kate.”

When BBC Radio 1 shared the moment on Twitter and tagged the Kensington Royal account, they replied with a pair of eyes emoji.

Greg then responded to the tweet with “uh-oh” before adding “Thank you @Camila_Cabello for deflecting the Charlotte handshake news story. Mission accomplished.”

Recently, the radio host was in trouble with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge after he mocked their daughter, Princess Charlotte on her first day of school, at Thomas’s Battersea in London. Greg allegedly laughed at the four-year-old for shaking hands with her teacher.

William and Kate approached Greg when he visited the palace before the Teen Hero Awards. He said: “They said: ‘We were listening on the morning of little Charlotte’s first day, and we want to talk to you about the handshaking thing’.”

“I went: ‘Oh God, no!’” he added. “They’d heard me saying this school was so posh they had to shake hands with their teacher every day.”

“They were not like that in my day. You were pleased if you got a smile,” the presenter continued, before saying he was sure “it’s all absolutely fine.”

William and Kate had hosted Radio 1’s Teen Heroes at Kensington Palace for the past four years, according to Express. The royal couple allegedly provided guests with sandwiches, cakes and fruit. Pop-star Camila claimed she was “honoured” to meet William and Kate during her visit.

“I was so honoured to be invited to Kensington Palace to meet and celebrate this year’s Teen Hero finalists with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge,” she stated. “Hearing the incredible things these Teen Heroes have done is so inspirational.”

“Their passion and dedication to help others is amazing, and they really blew me away.”
