Fairy-Tale Evening! Taylor Swift Stuns at Prince William’s Winter Gala
Today was a fairy-tale for Taylor Swift. Fresh off her big win at the American Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 24, the “I Knew You Were Trouble” songstress jetted off to London for the Nov. 26 Winter Whites Gala in Aid of Centrepoint, where she came face-to-face with a real, honest-to-goodness prince charming — the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William.
Defying the cold weather in a gorgeous crystal gown (and no coat), Swift walked the blue carpet outside Kensington Palace, which had been completely transformed for the evening’s winter wonderland theme. (There was even imported snow!)
“Oh my God, this is so incredibly exciting to be performing at Kensington Palace,” the “Red” singer told Us Weekly when she arrived. “With the snow, the lighting, the decorations, it’s all so Christmas-y. It’s kind of surreal, right? I’m at a palace!”
“I’m just soaking it all in. It’s going to be a great night,” she gushed. Asked whether she was nervous about performing for actual royalty, the country-pop superstar laughed and said, “I try not to think about that!” Later, after meeting Prince William, she exclaimed, “He’s so funny!”
The 23-year-old Grammy winner previously told BBC Radio 2 how much she was looking forward to the gala. “I’m really excited,” she said. “I’m really stoked. It’s the first royal engagement I’ve done, and I’m very, very honored.”
Other stars in attendance at the event include Michelle Dockery, Colin Firth, James Blunt, and Jon Bon Jovi, who is slated to perform with his band following the private dinner. After the concert, the Duke (who attended sans Kate Middleton) will present the New Jersey-born musician with the Centrepoint Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award for his humanitarian work with the Soul Foundation, which helps families and people in economic despair.

Taylor Swift Named Next of Kin by Pilot Who Died in Nashville Plane Crash
Curious and curiouser. There are a lot of unanswered questions about the plane crash that killed Canadian pilot Michael Callan in Nashville three weeks ago, but the strangest by far is this: Why did Callan, 45, list country-pop superstar Taylor Swift as his next of kin?
According to a report in the Tennessean, authorities heard from the Federal Aviation Administration that Callan had listed the 23-year-old “Red” songstress as his next of kin with the flying club in Canada. That information was relayed to Swift via her security team, none of whom knew or had heard of the pilot prior to his death.
“The first we heard of this was when the appropriate authorities contacted Taylor’s management about the crash,” Paula Erickson, the singer’s publicist, wrote in an email response to the Tennessean. “Taylor does not know this person.”
As reported by the Tennessean, Callan’s plane went down on Oct. 29 at the Nashville International Airport, 500 miles from his planned destination. Authorities say he circled the airport for as long as two-and-a-half hours before attempting to land; after he crashed, the wreckage from his plane, a Cessna 172R, remained undiscovered for several hours. It’s not known at this point why he was in the Nashville area.
Swift, for her part, has called the city home for several years; she has a three-bedroom duplex near Vanderbilt University, with 20-foot-high windows and panoramic views.

Taylor Swift Brushing Up on Her Etiquette Ahead of Royal Gig in England
Taylor Swift is used to the pressure of performing for millions. But putting on a show for just relatively few can be even more nerve-wracking – especially when the group includes a future king.
“I’m really excited,” the singer, 23, told the BBC before Wednesday’s CMAs about her Nov. 26 charity gig at the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. “I’m really stoked. This is the first thing I’ve performed at for any kind of royal engagement – very, very honored.”
But also very, very nervous, at least when it comes to the proper etiquette – her “her royal P’s and Q’s,” as BBC Radio 2′s Patrick Kielty put it.
“I’ve been asking about that,” Swift said. “I think I’m really safe if I just shake hands and be polite.”
Asked how she’ll address Prince William, Swift replied diplomatically, “That’s being presumptuous in that [it's] assuming I’ll meet [him]. First, I’ll just be polite enough to not assume I’m going to get to meet them.”
Jon Bon Jovi and James Blunt are also scheduled to perform during the Winter Whites Gala, which benefits homelessness charity Centrepoint.
