Live while you're young, Queen Elizabeth!
Sorry, all other boy-band fan armies, but it looks like Queen Elizabeth II stans for One Direction. On Tuesday night, the U.K. monarch held an Irish Community Reception at Buckingham Palace, inviting Niall Horan and about 299 other Irish people who are not Niall Horan over for a
casual very formal and dignified hang.
While we'd understandably be flipping our collective sh** over the opportunity to add the "Midnight Memories" singer's digits to our cell (EVEN A FAKE NUMBER! ANYTHING!), #TheQueen was probably all: "Yawn, another pop star... I am most nonplussed by this happenstance."
Don't you know how many of our favorite celebs she's met over the years? There's Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran -- even the Spice Girls! If we tell you what we want, what we really, really want, do you promise not to laugh?
We desire nothing more in this world than to be inside the Queen's circle of celebu-besties. Let's take a royal Throwback Thursday look at all the famous peeps Prince Harry's meemaw's met... AND LET US INSIDE THE CIRCLE!
How about when the Queen greeted Miley at 2009's Royal Variety Performance (working title, "Party In Ye Olde U.K.").
Gaga was there, too! Is she curtsying or taking charge like a "G.U.Y."? Unclear.
