UK royals Kate Middleton and Prince William have responded after Camila Cabello confessed she stole a pencil from them in October.

The Kensington Palace Twitter account responded with a shifty eyes emoji after a video was uploaded of a BBC Radio 1 interview on Tuesday morning in which the "Senorita" singer revealed her thievery.

"The last time I saw you, we were at the palace ... I was aiding and abetting a criminal, which was you," radio host Greg James began.

Cabello pleaded: "Don't tell anybody what my mother and I did!"

James explained the pair last met at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Heroes event at Kensington Palace where, just before meeting with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, he "triple doggy dared" Cabello to steal a pencil.

"And I was like 'you triple doggy dare me?' And you can't not do a triple doggy dare, if there's anything I've learned in my life it's that," Cabello said.

After Cabello sneakily "stole" the pencil, James threw another curveball at the 22-year-old by telling Kensington Palace staff on her.

"I was like 'oh my god' and I put it in my mom's purse and my mom was like 'no we have to give it back, we have to give back the pencil.' And I was like 'no, he triple doggy dared me,'" Cabello said.

Sticking to her guns, the singer bravely kept the pencil.

"So I still have it, I'm sorry William and I'm sorry Kate.

"Honestly I'm just so happy to get it off my chest now because I haven't been able to sleep for the past 3 weeks," Cabello said.
