Beyonce Has Royal Encounter During Mrs. Carter Tour Stop in London

Stop The Presses! (NEW)

Jay-Z's 2011 collaboration with Kanye West was called Watch The Throne, but the other night it was Jay's wife, Beyonce, who had a royal encounter.

Princess Eugenie attended Beyonce's recent Mrs. Carter Show at the O2 Arena and was the subject of a major hubbub. The U.K.'s Mirror reported that Beyoncé unknowingly thrust the cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry into the spotlight by putting the microphone in her face during an audience participation segment in "Irreplaceable," but the princess froze and was unable to get the words out.

Video of the purported incident has turned up in YouTube, but no such scene is visible to us in the clip, nor in photos pulled from it published by the New York Daily News.

We can confirm that Beyoncé did have a royal encounter with Eugenie. At about the 1:25 mark of the video you can see the princess and her posse shaking it and singing along as Queen Bey squats down and serenades them. Check it out.
