One Direction may not be royalty but their dedicated fans, the "Directioners", definitely think that they are. Well, what would happen if One Direction meets actual royalty? Oh yes, they did! The British boy band, One Direction, got to meet "THE" Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Albert Hall for the 2012 Royal Variety Performance in London, England which hosted by David Williams.
Not only did Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik meet the Queen and shake her hand but the 1D boys also seranaded Her Majesty. The British boys sung their fourth hit off their debut album "Little Things" which Ed Sheeran wrote.
Along with Queen Elizabeth II is the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip. This year's show was very special for the blue bloods because it was the 100th anniversary.
The Royal Variety Performance is a fundraiser for the Entertainment Artists' Benevolent Fund, helping to give money for its retirement and nursing home in Twickenham, Southwest London.
While a few fans of celebrities might get jealous of the fact that their idols got the chance of meeting the queen, "Directioners" had it the other way around. Fans of the boys were completely jealous of the Queen who had the chance of meeting her royal highness and being serenaded by the boys as well. It's completely ironic and mental but of course all the fans of the boys are.
"THEYRE SO PRECIOUS AND HOT AT THE SAME TIME WHY AM I NOT THE QUEEN," tweeted one fan by the name of @xiallophone.
"I HATE COMPARING 1D TO THE BEATLES BUT LOOK AT THE SIMILARITY WHEN THEY BOTH MET THE QUEEN IM SO DONE," tweeted @malikyourface.
"Ya know whats amazing!? The boys performed for The Queentoday! The Queen! That is like the ultimate accomplishment!" tweeted @iHeartNouisx.
The boys even took it to Twitter, each announcing the prestigious and once-in-a-lifetime chance.
"Today, I met The Queen," tweeted Harry Styles. Ironically, in just a few minutes the "Directioners" went nuts and retweeted it nearly 30,000 times.
The boys weren't the only performers at the said event because Kylie Minogue, Girls Aloud and Robbie Williams were also in attendance.
