Princess Beatrice Gets Duped Into Texting a Rhyming Poem to BFF Ellie Goulding on Comedy Show

Princess Beatrice has quite a way with words.

On Saturday, Ellie Goulding was taking part in a “Text To All” segment of the hit BBC comedy Michael McIntyre’s Big Show when she received a poem from her royal pal.

Here’s how the segment works: McIntrye borrows a celebrity guest’s cell phone (in this case Ellie) and sends a text message to all of the people listed in their contacts, without the recipients knowing that he’s behind the message.

“This might sound a bit weird but I’m writing a song all about you,” the text message read. “I’d love some help with the lyrics. I’m on the verse about the first time we met. What do you remember about that unforgettable moment? And if you can make it rhyme even better. Hurry! I’m in the studio right now and my creative juices are flowing lol x.”

One of the first recipients to respond? Princess Beatrice. And it seems like she followed directions perfectly—the newly engaged royal responded with a heartfelt poem, that did, indeed rhyme.

“My dearest friend I love so dearly. I feel so lucky, I adore this girl so clearly. From wedding chats to Saturday evening, I adore this lady with every feeling. There truly isn’t a time that our friendship could equal a rhyme.” How sweet.

Watch the full video above and prepare to both laugh and say “aw.”
