“Fergie wasn’t exactly flirting with me, but she was paying attention to me, and I think Andrew got a little – I could be wrong, I’m just reading into this – I think he got a little jealous. Anyway, he tried to push me in the moat. So I turned around and I grabbed him and he goes, ‘You can’t touch me – I’m royal.’ I said, ‘Well you try to push me in the moat, Jack, I don’t give a s**t who you are, you’re goin’ in the moat.’”
Meat Loaf’s meeting with Prince Charles, right, as Beyoncé looks on, at London’s Party In The Park in 2003, seems to have been a more friendly royal encounter.
