Lady Gaga joked that veteran crooner Tony Bennett runs rings around her on stage as she met Prince Harry at a charity gala last night.

The prince charmed the pop royalty ahead of the concert, and Gaga declared she thinks Harry is "fantastic". The trio chatted ahead of a performance by Gaga and Bennett to support WellChild, a charity that supports children with life-limiting conditions which the Prince is patron of.

Gaga told the Prince: "We are so happy to be here tonight and be of any help."

Explaining how he and Gaga collaborated on their album, Cheek to Cheek, veteran crooner Bennett (88) said: "I heard her personally and said we have to get together."

Harry said: "I can't believe you have the energy I don't know how you do it." Gaga replied: "He runs circles round me."
