Queen Elizabeth mistakes Robbie Williams for a dog trainer
Nov 26, 2012, 16:12 GMT
Britain's Queen Elizabeth thought Robbie Williams was a dog trainer.
The 'Candy' hitmaker performed at this year's Royal Variety Performance alongside stars such as Alicia Keys and 'Britain's Got Talent' winners Ashleigh Butler and her performing dog Pudsey, and the Take That singer was surprised to discover the monarch didn't 'have a clue' who he was and mistook him for Pudsey's trainer.
Speaking at one of his performances last week, he said: 'I have had the pleasure of singing for the queen this week. She hasn't got a clue who I am.
'At the Royal Variety Performance, in the line-up afterwards, we were shaking hands ... and she thought I was Pudsey's trainer.'
This isn't the first time the queen has been left confused about Robbie's identity as he revealed she also mistook him for someone else after he performed his hit single 'Let Me Entertain You' during the Diamond Jubilee concert, which was organised by his Take That bandmate Gary Barlow.
He continued: 'I did the queen's Jubilee this summer. I sang 'Let Me Entertain You'. After, I met the queen and shook her hand. She thought I was a member of congress.'
