The Duchess of Cornwall told the singer Lady Gaga that the unlikely pair share a nickname, as she arrived at the Royal Variety Performance. As they were introduced ahead of tonight’s show, Camilla said to the notoriously flamboyant Bad Romance singer: ‘My grandchildren call me Gaga.’
The Duchess, accompanied by the Prince of Wales, also met Robbie Williams before the royal couple took their seats at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
Host and comedian David Walliams led a group of people to the royal box, asking Charles and Camilla ‘can I see your tickets please?’, before joking to the group: ‘There’s some riff-raff here sitting in your seats.’
Gaga and Williams were set to perform alongside Sting and Emeli Sandé.
