“I have met Prince Harry a few times. I’ve seen him since he was about ten. I have seen him grow up. It is brilliant what he is doing with his life,” she said. “It’s all for a good cause.
“I think he is a great ambassador for showing people that we care and he’s got great spirit and heart. I think he’s brilliant. We are looking forward to seeing him in action.”

The singer didn’t seem to know a whole lot about polo. However, she did say she had been on a polo pony before, describing them as “amazing…I want to say like a Ferrari…”
“No don’t say Ferrari, it’s Red Bull!” corrected her new fiancé, referring to his Red Bull F1 team, for which he has been captain for the past nine years.
