Black Eyed Peas - Queen Elizabeth Reminds Will.i.am Of Gran

Will.i.am says Queen Elizabeth is as classy as his grandmother.

The 'Black Eyed Peas' rapper is in awe of the royal family and in particular the monarch - who is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this year - saying she reminds him of his beloved gran.

He said: ''I was like wow, that's how my grandma is! Elegant and classy and the way she wore her hat ... even her clothes are like my grandma's clothes.''

'The Voice' coach - who performed at the Diamond Jubilee Concert in June alongside British veterans Sir Cliff Richard and Sir Tom Jones - revealed he was also impressed with how down to earth Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royals are.

He added: ''She's the leader of the family, you know, and when Prince Charles called her mummy or mumsy I was like 'wow'.

''It's amazing because they're just like normal people.''

The star recently donated £500,000 to Prince Charles' charity, The Prince's Trust and jokingly asked the heir to the throne if he had room for a lodger.

He said: ''I told Prince Charles I was looking for a flat here and said, 'This is a big old crib you've got here. It's a big old house. So could I get a little space?''
