“The last time I saw you, we were at the palace … I was aiding and abetting a criminal, which was you,” radio host Greg James began.
Cabello pleaded: “Don’t tell anybody what my mother and I did!”
James explained the pair last met at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Heroes event at Kensington Palace where, just before meeting with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, he “triple doggy dared” Cabello to steal a pencil.

Radio 1’s Teen Heroes of 2019 visited The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace earlier this month, along with chart-topping superstar Camila Cabello and BBC Radio 1 DJs Clara Amfo and Greg James. Now in its tenth year, @bbcradio1’s Teen Awards is the biggest teen event in the pop music calendar and shines a light on some of the UK’s most inspirational teens, seeing them crowned Teen Heroes of 2019 in front of an audience of 14-17 year-olds. This is the fourth consecutive year that Radio 1’s Teen Heroes have been honoured with an invitation to the Palace. The ten finalists were greeted by The Duke and Duchess, who praised them for their inspirational work and their dedication to helping others. #R1TeenAwards
“And I was like ‘you triple doggy dare me?’ And you can’t not do a triple doggy dare, if there’s anything I’ve learned in my life it’s that,” Cabello said.
After Cabello sneakily “stole” the pencil, James threw another curveball at the 22-year-old by telling Kensington Palace staff on her.
“I was like ‘oh my god’ and I put it in my mom’s purse and my mom was like ‘no we have to give it back, we have to give back the pencil.’ And I was like ‘no, he triple doggy dared me,'” Cabello said.

Sticking to her guns, the singer bravely kept the pencil.
“So I still have it, I’m sorry William and I’m sorry Kate.
“Honestly I’m just so happy to get it off my chest now because I haven’t been able to sleep for the past 3 weeks,” Cabello said.
