Was it a case of royal stage fright?
Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, may have had a choice seat near the stage for Beyoncé's concert at London's O2 Arena Tuesday. But when the singing star pointed the microphone in the young royal's face and asked her to belt out a line from "Irreplaceable" as she does to audience members each night, Eugenie blanched, according to a report from the U.K.'s Mirror.
According to the report, which cites an eyewitness, Beyoncé didn't apparently recognize Eugenie when she asked her to sing the line "to the left/to the left" in her hit song.
Instead, when she held the microphone out, Eugenie dodged the opportunity, ducking away in embarrassment and dropping to the ground, according to the Mirror report. "All Eugenie's friends were teasing her about her stage fright for hours afterwards," the paper reports, quoting a concertgoer.

The The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are keeping a low profile on their "babymoon" to the idyllic island of Mustique.
The couple – expecting their first baby in July – are staying at a five-bedroom villa set in lush gardens, which normally costs an eye-popping $25,000 a week. Also enjoying paradise are Kate's parents Carole and Mike and siblings Pippa and James.
On previous visits, William, 30, has stopped by to grab a drink and play the piano at the bar at Firefly, and together the couple have participated in Sunday night Karaoke at Basil's Bar.

Prince William had better have some surprises up his sleeve for Christmas Day at his wife Kate's family home.
Father-in-law Michael Middleton likes to pull a few party tricks – including dressing up in costume, his daughter Pippa has revealed.
"My father has developed this funny tradition of surprising us at some point by appearing in fancy dress," the Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends" author, 29, writes in the latest holiday edition of the political magazine The Spectator.

After suffering from extreme morning sickness in the first weeks of her pregnancy, Kate will spend Christmas in the comfort of her family, a St. James Palace spokesman told PEOPLE on Saturday.
In a major break from tradition, which was cleared after consultation with Queen Elizabeth, she and husband William will visit her hometown, Bucklebury to celebrate the holiday "privately with the Middleton family," according to the Palace.

Even duchesses can get the monster of all morning sicknesses.
Known as hyperemesis gravidarum (HG), the condition – for which Kate was hospitalized for four days – is characterized by debilitating nausea and vomiting that severely inhibits a woman's ability to eat or drink and results in significant weight loss. Affecting up to 2 percent of all pregnant women, it can start as early as five weeks into pregnancy and endure for weeks or even months.
The condition typically comes on suddenly. During a visit to her prep school, St. Andrew's, on Nov. 30, a seemingly upbeat Kate dined on Scottish beef and played field hockey in 3-inch heels. Just two days later, she was rushed to the hospital and her pregnancy announced.

The Duchess of Cambridge had more hospital visitors on Wednesday.
Just two days after husband Prince William, 30, was photographed leaving the King Edward VII Hospital in Central London where a pregnant Kate, 30, was admitted for hyperemesis gravidarum, her sister, Pippa Middleton, brother James and mom Carole (not pictured), also dropped by to keep the mom-to-be company.
Pippa was bundled up in a coat, sporting a tan-colored ensemble, while her brother was casually dressed in jeans and layered tops.

It's a love match for Prince William and Kate, who looked happy and relaxed sitting together courtside Wednesday at Wimbledon.
Kate – donning the Alexander McQueen sailor-style outfit she wore one year ago during their visit to Charlottetown, Canada – and her husband watched from the royal box as Switzerland's Roger Federer beat Russia's Mikhail Youzhny in straight sets on the famous Centre Court.

The world's most famous royal bridesmaid is back at the world's most famous grass tennis courts.
Pippa Middleton was spotted at Wimbledon Thursday watching the second-round action from inside the royal box at Centre Court in London.
Middleton – in a white, button-up sweater – likely stole some attention away from the women's singles match between four-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams and Hungary's Melinda Czink.
Serena served a whopping 10 aces Thursday leading to a 6-1, 6-4 victory.
Kate's sister, 28, attended another match there with Alex Loudon one year ago Friday.
This time, the royal sister-in-law to Prince William was with her brother, James Middleton.

It doesn't take much to bring Kate down to earth.
After days of buoyant Diamond Jubilee celebrations for Queen Elizabeth, the Duchess of Cambridge slipped into something more comfortable – jeans, Barbour jacket and a hat – and stepped out for a walk through Kensington Gardens with her dog Lupo, her younger brother James Middleton, and another dog, presumed to be a Middleton family cocker spaniel.
The siblings were spotted last week by Canadian TVjournalist Jocelyn Laidlaw in a chance sighting at Kensington Gardens in London.
"Catherine Duchess of Cambridge walking Lupo today in Kensington Gardens," Laidlaw wrote. "Lovely to see her so low-key. What luck."

In a spectacular display of royal pageantry, Queen Elizabeth was feted at a special river-born celebration Sunday when she and her family rode down the Thames through London.
In a scale that hasn't been seen for around 350 years, more than 1,000 boats created a magical flotilla along the river – with the Queen, 86, at its heart. She took her place on the 210-ft. Spirit of Chartwell royal barge, which was given a makeover and bedecked with 10,000 roses, carnations, sweet peas and red charm peonies for the cruise – the centerpiece of her Diamond Jubilee.
Helping welcome her aboard were her grandson Prince William and his wife Kate.
