Shawn Mendes is spilling on his awkward run-ins with British royals!
The half-British “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” crooner recently took the stage at Queen Elizabeth‘s 92nd birthday in London, England, and he paid a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (May 17) at the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, Calif., to share what happened.
“I’m in this backstage area before you go on stage … and the Queen just walks up next to me, and she’s standing there, and I’m like, looking at her, and you can’t say anything,” he explained. “You’re not allowed to speak to her unless she speaks to you first.”
“So it was like this 10 minutes of just awkward silence between me and the Queen,” he went on. “She didn’t look at me at all. I looked over a couple times and I was like, I probably shouldn’t be looking. It was super weird.”
“She does it every year so she’s probably like, oh, again,” he added. “I don’t even know this kid.”
Shawn also opened up about his biggest regret, involving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle that same night! Plus, does he hear “yanny” or “laurel?”
