Britain's Princess Beatrice has struck up an unlikely friendship with singer Lily Allen. The 19-year-old royal and the 'Smile' pop star hit it off immediately when they met at the Swarovski Fashion Rocks bash earlier this month, and Lily invited her back to her London home to continue the celebrations.
A source told Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Beatrice was knocking back shots the whole time, and dancing round Lily's living room. At one point she got really excited when she realized where she was and who she was with, and shouted out, 'I'm not so royal now, am I?'
"She was the life and soul of the party. She was great fun. Her and Lily were controlling the stereo, putting on the tunes and leading the dancing. Bea was one of the last to leave in the early hours of the morning - she must have had a serious hangover the next day!"
Beatrice was among a host of celebrities, including Kelly Osbourne, Beth Ditto and Kate Moss, who attended Lily's house party in Hackney.
The 22-year-old singer was reportedly so impressed with the young princess' drinking and partying skills that she has already invited the princess to her next party.
