Kate Middleton, Prince William Planning A Collaboration With Taylor Swift?
Kate Middleton and Prince William, reportedly, want to set up a meeting with American pop star Taylor Swift so that they could collaborate on a future project together.
According to royal correspondent Charlie Lankston, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have "broached the idea" to get to know the famous singer but they have yet to set a date and fix their schedules. Lankston, however, doesn't believe that Swift and her English boyfriend, actor Joe Alwyn, have had tea with Kate and William despite rumors from a French tabloid.
Swift, however, had a chance to meet William in person in 2013 during a charity gala at Kensington Palace. Reports stated that the hitmaker performed at the event and did a surprising impromptu song number with the Duke of Cambridge.
The Grammy-winning singer told USA Today that she had an awesome time meeting the future King of England and said that William was "very funny" in person. Kate wasn't at the said event since she was still nursing baby Prince George at that time.
Swift has been splitting her time between the United States and the United Kingdom because of her four-year relationship with Alwyn. In 2019, the "Evermore" singer was said to be looking for a new home to share with her beau in London since Alwyn has been staying at his mother's house in North London.
Sources said that the pair have a house at Crouch End and could be seen walking at the nearby parks during their downtimes. Most recently, Swift and Alwyn had been doing their wintry walks while holding each other's handsaround Finsbury Park.
Meanwhile, Kate and William remain busy with their royal duties as the U.K. lockdown continues. On Wednesday, the pair participated in a special video call with nursing students from the Ulster University in Northern Ireland.
According to People, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge praised the nurses in training, who had been called upon to join the frontlines in this fight against COVID. Kate, who is the patron of the Nursing Now initiative to uplift the profiles of nurses around the world, told the students that their expertise and services are "needed now more than ever." The Duchess of Cambridge touched on nursing as a trusted profession and she commended the students for choosing a great career.
William, on the other hand, asked about the student nurses' experiences, citing that it must have been a "baptism by fire" to be called to the frontlines. The young healthcare workers agreed but also said that they've been motivated to do more to help the sick during this pandemic.
