One Direction set for royal show

One Direction will join the Royal Variety Performance line-up

One Direction are to sing for the Queen after being added to the bill for the Royal Variety Performance.

The chart-topping boy band join performers such as Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Girls Aloud at the event, hosted by David Walliams.

One Direction, who conquered the US this year, will perform their forthcoming single Little Things which was written by Ed Sheeran.

The Queen will be accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh for the 100th anniversary of the event at the Royal Albert Hall on November 19.

Also in the line-up are Rod Stewart, Neil Diamond and Alicia Keys, with the performance to be screened by ITV1 in December.

The performance will raise funds for the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund, helping to maintain its retirement and nursing home in Twickenham, south-west London.

You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
