(Newser) – When Beyonce chose a random audience member to belt out a line from her song "Irreplaceable" last night at London's O2 Arena, little did she know the audience member was sixth in line to the British throne. Yes, Beyonce stuck her microphone under Princess Eugenie's royal nose, urging her to sing, "To the left, to the left." But an embarrassed Eugenie couldn't manage to get any sound out, and eventually ducked down and hid, a source tells the Mirror.

"It was hilarious," says the concertgoer. "Eugenie was on the front row with Kate Middleton’s brother, James, and his new girlfriend, Donna Air, plus designers Matthew Williamson and Patrick Cox. Beyonce clearly didn’t recognize her." After Eugenie left her hanging, "Beyonce was forced to quickly fill in the missing words and find a new, willing victim," the source continues. "All Eugenie’s friends were teasing her about her stage fright for hours afterward."

Everyone knows you're supposed to embarrass the poor people, not the rich. What's wrong with you Beyonce?
