Kings of Leon star Nathan Followill had a royal battle on a recent trip to the U.K. – he challenged Prince Harry to a ping pong contest.
Followill met the British royal at London's O2 Arena and invited him to take part in a table tennis competition. Followill's bandmates urged the rocker to go easy on the Prince – but he refused – and won.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "We're still pretty wide-eyed about meeting dignitaries but he's the cool prince I think. He picked up a ping pong bat backstage and we went at it.
"I'm not sure what the etiquette is when you play a prince at table tennis, but hey, I'm a king aren't I? A king trumps a prince. I think the other guys thought, ';Maybe you should let a real prince win.'
"But he is so tall and he's got military training so I figured he can look after himself. It was a hard-fought battle but I took him in the end."
