Craig David has said the Prince of Wales told him Prince George “was going crazy” for his blue sequined outfit during the Platinum Party at the Palace this year.

The star-studded concert featured Ed Sheeran, Sir Rod Stewart and Diana Ross, and was part of the weekend celebrations commemorating the Queen’s 70-year reign.

The R&B singer, 41, recalled being invited with his mother to Buckingham Palace for a “little soiree” following the performance.

He said: “She was gripping my hand and I could tell what she was going to say, she said, ‘We’re in the Queen’s house’.

“Prince William walks over, he comes over, says, ‘My son George was going crazy for the blue sequined outfit that you were wearing’.

“My mum was there, I said, ‘Lovely to meet you, love that George loved the outfit’.

“That moment for me, as a son (introducing my mother to William), was probably the most incredible moment for me.

“Then Kate comes over. Very memorable moment," he told the ITV's Jonathan Ross Show.

Mr David described William as “super down-to-earth” and said the prince and his younger brother, the Duke of Sussex, were part of a new chapter for the monarchy.

He said: “It’s almost like seeing him and seeing Harry and seeing the next generation coming through, I feel it’s giving a different tone to the royal family.”

Speaking about the King, he said: “I’m an ambassador of the Prince’s Trust.

“He is another one. He’s a stand-up guy. Whenever I met him, it’s not the pretence of what could come with being a royal.

“He’s very down-to-earth and he is very much an advocate for, ‘How can we help the young children?’”
