17 Surprising Celebs Who Are Friends with Royals
On Harry's tour of the Caribbean last fall, he made a stop on the island of Barbados — where he met the country's most famous (former) resident: Rihanna. The two laughed their way through photo opps, as well as attended a concert and even took a live HIV test on-camera together.
When Arnett is in London, Harry's one of the first people he texts, he revealed on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Arnett met Harry in London, and the two traded numbers. On his last trip, Arnett texted him, telling him that he was in front of his "gran's house" (also known as Buckingham Palace). Though Harry wasn't in town, Arnett had nothing but nice things to say: “He’s the real deal, that dude. He’s a real prince of a guy.”
The tennis star is so tight with Princess Kate’s little sister, Pippa Middleton, that he scored a much-coveted invite to her wedding!
Alright, so we don't know if these two keep in touch, but Swift did have a pretty epic moment with Prince William during a Kensington Palace charity event in 2013, where they sang "Livin' on a Prayer" with Bon Jovi on stage. "If he ever wants me to sing with him again I'll be there," Swift said of the experience. 'It was a night I will remember till I'm very, very old. The whole evening was completely wondrous."
The Oscar winner and Prince William go way, way back — to their high school days! They both attended the prestigious school, Eton College, and even played on the same rugby team together. Sadly, the friendship has faded. Redmayne said: "He was a pal at school, but I haven’t seen him since school."
Prince Harry goes way back with model-turned-actress Delevingne. Her Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie told E! News that Delevingne and the royal have been friends for years. They're close enough that she'll send him (joking) flirtatious text messages: Delevingne told Love magazine that she and Robbie both texted him that she had a dream about him the night before, to which Harry responded. "You two are obviously together. But I'm extremely glad I was in your dreams."
Through Delevingne, Robbie's also gotten to know Prince Harry – and yes, she has his number. Although they're not quite at BFF level yet: Robbie admitted that she takes days, sometimes weeks, to text him back!
If you want to meet Prince Harry, befriend Delevingne. Her good friend Waterhouse is also a pal of Harry's. According to Robbie, he attended Waterhouse's housewarming party – and had some photobooth fun – last year.
DAVID & VICTORIA BECKHAM
The Beckhams are friendly with Harry, as well as Prince William and Princess Kate. They attended Will and Kate's 2011 wedding and hung out with Prince Harry – and the Queen! – at Buckingham Palace. In an interview with Esquire, David said he'd call both William and Harry friends. "It's a very normal relationship," he said. "They're very easy to get along with. They love their sport."
The iconic singer was friends with the late Princess Diana, and that relationship has extended to her sons. John and his husband, David Furnish, were invited to Will and Kate's wedding. And John appeared alongside Harry at the International AIDS Conference in July.
Goulding was also at Will and Kate's wedding, but in a different capacity: She performed at the reception – and even sang for the couple's first dance. They've kept in touch since, and Goulding says: “They’re just a really awesome couple, lovely people."
MILA KUNIS & ASHTON KUTCHER
The First Lady has gotten to know Prince Harry throughout her time in the White House, and the two have worked together on numerous efforts for recovering veterans, including the Invictus Games. They also hung out with Barack Obama, Will, Kate and Prince George at Kensington Palace earlier this year.
The "You're Beautiful" singer and Harry have been friends for years now: They both served in the British Army together. He also performed at the Invictus Games in May 2016, after Harry invited him by text.
Blunt isn't the only British crooner who Harry is pals with: He's close with Stone, too. She teased him about his dancing skills at Kensington Palace's Sentebale charity concert earlier this year, but on a more serious note, she had nothing but compliments for him. "He’s just a lovely guy," she said. "I’ve come into contact with Harry and William for years now and we as a country we watch them grow and we watch them do lovely things and I think all of us as a nation should be proud of those boys, those men."
