Last night, Dancing With The Stars pro, Derek Hough, was asked to attend the Bafta Brits to meet the newly wed Royal couple Prince William and his Duchess Kate. It was a black tie affrair where only a select few were invited. The guests at the event were told how to act around a Royal. From People.com;
“They want to meet all of you. They will try and chat to all of you this evening,” Duncan Kenworthy, vice chairman of British Academy of Film and Television Arts told guests. “When you meet them, you don’t have to bow and curtsy. You can call them whatever you feel: ‘Your Royal Highness,’ ‘Sir,’ ‘Ma’am,’ ‘William’ and ‘Kate’ – just as the mood takes you.”
Prince William spoke at the event asking them to help the new wave of “enormously talented Brits”. He said, “Please give them the opportunities you have always extended to some of the brightest and best that Britain has to offer,” he said. “When American and British creative talent gets together, magic happens.” It’s no wonder then as to why Derek was invited as not only is he talented, but, he has lived and been trained in both Countries.
Special thanks to Heidi, she was able to capture some cool footage of Derek on the Red Carpet wearing one of the sharpest black tuxedo’s and bow tie I’ve ever seen him wear yet. What’s more, she was able to record all the footage of him being interviewed as well. He talks on what an honor it was to be asked to attend and more. Note how he’s changed his hair too.
