In her breakout single "Royals," Lorde sings about gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin' in the bathroom, blood stains, ball gowns and trashin' the hotel room, among other things.
In conclusion: These are not the first thoughts that come to mind when we think of the Royal Family.
But if the likes of Prince William, Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Prince Harry formed a cover band and took on Lorde, well, we know that power group would win it all at Sunday's Grammy Awards, where the song is up for record of the year, song of the year and best pop solo performance. (Lorde, 17, is also nominated for best pop vocal album.)
Until then, we'll just let the real royals take the mic.

The group was shocked when they learned that the subject of the movie, Nelson Mandela, had died.
"We were delivered the news as the credits rolled," Tweeted The Mail on Sunday's royal correspondent Katie Nicholl. "Silence here in the cinema where the royal couple have just watched Mandela. RIP."

It turns out the stunning diamond tiara worn by Kate to an event at Buckingham Palace Tuesday night was, literally, fit for a queen.
Known as the Lotus Flower Tiara, the crown jewel that Palace insiders say was loaned to the Duchess of Cambridge by Queen Elizabeth from her collection dates back to the Queen's mother in the 1920s.
"It's a beautiful pearl and diamond piece," expert Leslie Field, author of The Queen's Jewels, says about the Egyptian-style tiara, which was also previously owned and worn by the Queen's late sister, Princess Margaret. "It's very much in the '20s style and probably quite lightweight and comfortable to wear."
