Sibling rivalry is rife in the royal household it seems. This is after Prince Harry befriended rap star Dizzee Rascal, his older brother William seemingly felt left out and decided to acquire a grime artist friend for himself.

Apparently William, who is second in line to the throne, has struck up an unlikely friendship with bright new thing Tinie Tempah.

The pair met at Radio 1’s Big Weekend and chatted for a good while after Tinie’s set where they seemed to get on like a house on fire reports suggest.

A source close to the Prince said, “To see Wills making a beeline for Tinie was strange but brilliant. William told him he’s a big fan. He said Pass Out is one of his favourite songs. Tinie was made up.”

Tinie himself seemed to play down the new acquaintance saying, “He was just a nice guy. We were just talking and getting familiar.” So familiar in fact that Will invited Tinie to an upcoming polo match of his- as a spectator of course.
