Britney Spears almost became Queen of England after ‘cyber relationship’ with teenage Prince William

She is known as the pop princess, but Britney Spears was once on the verge of becoming the Queen of England.

The American singer, 40, apparently shared a “cyber romance” with Prince William, 40, when they were teenagers, but things fizzled out before they could make things official.

In 2002, Britney told talk show host Frank Skinner that she had chatted with the Duke of Cambridge via email and even invited him to dinner while she was touring the UK.

‘[William and Spears] tried to get back together when they were young,” the author claimed in his book Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan.
