Rock chick AVRIL LAVIGNE snubbed British royal Prince Charles at
yesterday's (11JUL04) Party In The Park event in London - by refusing to take
her seat next to him.
The COMPLICATED singer was due to join R+B babe Jamelia by sitting next to
the heir to the throne while the festivities continued, but called off the
arrangement at the last minute to fly home.
Organisers were enraged by Avril's decision and had to arrange British POP
IDOL winner Will Young to take her place.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Avril wasn't keen on the
"She wanted to get away as soon as she completed her set. Hasty
arrangements were made for Will Young to take her place.
"The official line is that Avril had a plane to catch. But the truth is
she is cripplingly shy and hates publicity stunts."
