Jessie Ware: Prince William was very sweet
Jessie Ware thought Britain’s Prince William was “very sweet and accommodating”.
The singer met the prince when she performed during his recent visit to China and asked him to settle a dispute with her husband Sam Burrows and name their new puppy, and he was happy to oblige by christening the dog Stanley.
Jessie told Grazia magazine: “I was performing in Shanghai during William’s visit and I was getting a puppy the next day.
“My husband Sam and I couldn’t agree on a name so I thought I’d leave it up to the future king to make the decision. He was very sweet and accommodating.”
Jessie used to work at a TV production company with ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ author E. L. James and the pair recently enjoyed a “surreal” catch-up at Los Angeles’ Chateau Marmont where they celebrated one another’s successes.
Jessie said: “It was surreal, going from sitting in an office in Holborn to achieving our dreams.
“We had a little drink and did a double ‘Congratulations’.”
The 30-year-old star recently admitted she is thankful she found success relatively later in life.
She said: “I’m really happy all this is happening now as when I was younger, the decisions I made maybe wouldn’t have been as good.
“I don’t know, I guess you just grow up. It’s not to say that someone who is 21 can’t make good decisions, it’s just that I feel a lot better doing it all now I’m a bit older.”
