Strictly star Aston Merrygold speaks out on 'crazy' royal encounter with Queen

He continued: “Being within the Palace grounds and being amongst royalty and the protocol behind everything, it was like jeez.

“We thought we had a tight-knit security team around us but [royalty] is a whole other ballgame. Nowhere near close.”

Recalling the moment, Aston gushed: “Being at the Queen’s Jubilee and getting to perform in front of millions of people. That will never be done again.
