Camila Cabello had the honor of attending a teen heroes event at Kensington Palace last month, and she did what anyone would do when visiting a royal residence: she snatched a secret souvenir. During an interview with BBC Radio 1 this week, Cabello admitted to the princely pilfering, saying “don’t tell anybody what my mother and I did.”
Also at the teen event was her BBC interlocutor, Greg James, who recalled in their interview that he dared Cabello to swipe a pencil from the palace. “And I was like, ‘do you triple doggy dare me?’,” Cabello said, noting that everyone knows you can’t not do a triple doggy dare. “If there’s anything I’ve learned in my life it’s that,” she said. “So I did it and then you, to one of the palace people, called me out on it.”
Freaked, Cabello said she slipped the pencil into her mother’s purse, only to get rebuked by her mama, who insisted they return it. “I was like, ‘no, he triple doggy dared me… I have to take the pencil. So I still have it.” Cabello apologized to the royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and a short time later their Twitter account made it clear that now they’ve got their eyes on the “Liar” singer.
