Rapper Will.I.AM stunned PRINCE WillIAM during their first meeting by inviting the British royal to go clubbing with him.

The Black Eyed Peas star met members of the U.K. royal family during Queen Elizabeth Ii's Diamond Jubilee celebrations over the summer (12), and the I Gotta Feeling hitmaker reveals he asked the prince to join him on a night out.

However, will.i.am was left disappointed when the second in line to the throne declined his offer.

Will.i.am tells Britain's Live magazine, "When I met Prince William I told him I felt really short next to him. Then I said, 'Hey, let's go clubbing.' He said, 'No, I can't'. I said, 'Well, what about Harry (William's brother, Prince Harry?)."
