Did the Princess of Pop almost become a real royal?
Biographer Christopher Andersen alleged in his new book, Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan that Prince William connected with Britney Spears prior to his marriage to Kate Middleton.
“William and Spears tried to get together back when they were young, and he also had a kind of similar cyber relationship with Lauren Bush, the model and the niece of President [George W.] Bush,” Andersen exclusively told Us Weekly on Tuesday.
The journalist claimed that their relationship never escalated. “There may have been phone conversations, but I don’t recall that they ever actually managed to get together during that period,” he said.
The “Toxic” pop star claimed during a 2002 interview with ITV1’s Frank Skinner Show that the twosome “exchanged emails for a little bit, and he was supposed to come and see [her] somewhere but it didn’t work out.”
Prior to his alleged friendship with Spears, William set his sights on another celebrity. “William had a huge crush on Cindy Crawford. I think it’s very cute,” Andersen shared. “So Princess Diana arranged for a meeting with him when he was, like, 14.”
