Cheryl Cole Talks Kate Middleton and Prince Harry in The New Issue of Grazia: Exclusive

In this week's issue of Grazia, we bring you Lottie Lumsden's exclusive interview with Cheryl Cole. The Geordie popstar reveals she's fighting back against the internet bullies with a little help from Prince Charles and her new charity Cheryl Cole Foundation, which launched at the end of last year. She also dishes on her embarrassing slip-up when meeting Charles himself and her difficult childhood in Newcastle. For the full interview, get thee to the newsagent pronto but because we're generous folk, we wanted to bring you a taster. Read on for the highlights...

On The Cheryl Cole Foundation

‘I’m sick of talking about myself and my career and I had an overwhelming sense of needing to do something for charity. I wanted to give back.’

On internet bullies

'In the last few years I’ve been bullied on Facebook and Twitter. It’s evil and very public. People judge my appearance and hair, and say that I look fat. And I want to help these young people because I know how it feels to come out on the other side and be someone who achieves.’

On her upbringing in Newcastle

‘There were a few near misses. When you live in an underprivileged environment like some of the kids I’ve met you do make the wrong decisions and you hang out with the wrong people.’

On the Duchess of Cambridge

‘Kate is really down to earth and we talked about fashion and she said she loved my music. She was incredibly girly and sweet.’

On Prince Harry

‘Everybody knows I have a soft spot for Harry. He’s cute. I’ve met him several times and we laugh about it. It’s a bit of banter between us. He’s so ordinary and a normal 27-year-old who is living in a crazy world and we can bond over that.’
