It seems the British royal family now has their eyes on Camila Cabello after the singer admitted that she stole a pencil from Kensington Palace, home to Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Cabello only stole the pencil because she was “triple doggy dared” by BBC Radio 1 host Greg James, she confessed in an interview in the latter’s show posted on Twitter last Tuesday, Nov. 26.


In the interview, James started recalling their visit at the palace when Cabello pleaded: “Don’t tell anybody what my mother and I did.” James then proceeded to tell the story.

“We were about to meet William and Kate, and I said, ‘we got to steal something. Steal something.’ And I said, ‘steal that pencil,'” the radio host recalled.

“And I was like, ‘you triple doggy dare me?'” Cabello answered. “You can’t not do a triple doggy dare, if there’s anything I’ve learned in my life, it’s that.”

James, however, betrayed Cabello and told on her, which prompted the singer to panic and hide the pencil in her mother’s purse.

“I was like, ‘oh my God,’ and I put it in my mom’s purse,” she recalled. “My mom was like, ‘no, we have to give it back, we have to give back the pencil.'”

Cabello then simply told her mom, “no, he triple doggy dared me. I have to take the pencil.”


Cabello’s royal theft did not go unnoticed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, however, as Kensington Palace’s official Twitter account left a subtle eye emoji in reply to BBC’s tweet.

Cabello and James visited the royal couple’s home last month to celebrate this year’s Teen Hero winners and finalists with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The Teen Hero Awards, hosted annually by BBC Radio 1, “celebrates the selfless, brave and exceptional achievements of someone aged 12-17,” as per BBC. Ian Biong/NVG
