It was a great honour and privilege to be part of this year’s Royal Variety Performance, a wonderful evening. It was also special to perform in such a historic and famous theatre, with a beautiful ambience. I performed a medley of ‘A Night Like This’, from my first album, and ‘Sway’, originally from Dean Martin.
Charles and Camilla were both very nice. I remember I was very nervous talking to them! Charles asked me if I enjoyed the evening and performing for this special audience. Camilla asked about the pregnancy and wished me good luck.
At the rehearsals I was standing next to John Newman. It was only after meeting him that I realized he did the song ‘Feel The Love’ with Rudimental, I am a big fan of this song! It was a pleasure to meet him. I also had a nice chat with Jimmy Carr. It was amazing to be part of such an incredible line-up of artists!
A lot of people asked what I was wearing. I selected a vintage dress for this special occasion by Stop Staring, my shoes were by Jimmy Choo and the headpiece was custom made by Dutch designer Eudia. We worked together on this design. The jewellery was provided by the wonderful people at Humprey Butler, and made my outfit complete!
