Taylor Swift has met some pretty impressive people, but Prince William may take the cake. The 23-year-old "Red" singer will perform for the Duke of Cambridge and his guests on Tuesday, Nov. 26, during Winter White Gala at Kensington Palace in London. The event will raise money for Centrepoint, a charity providing housing and a range of other services to young homeless people in the U.K.

William, 31, has been a patron of the organization since September 2005.

The country cutie spoke about the private concert during a Nov. 6 radio interview with BBC Radio 2. "I'm really excited," said Swift, who took home the Pinnacle Award at the CMA Awards later that evening. "I'm really stoked. It's the first royal engagement I've done and I'm very, very honored.''

Kate Middleton isn't scheduled to attend the benefit, but if she does decide to turn up, Swift will be ready. That's because she's been brushing up on her etiquette. "I think I'm just really safe if I just shake hands and be polite," she said of potentially meeting the royals. "I think that's being presumptuous in assuming I'll meet them, so first I'm going to be polite enough to not assume I'll meet them.''

Bon Jovi will also perform. Once the concert ends, William will give a short speech and present Jon Bon Jovi with the Centrepoint Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award for his humanitarian work.

Swift, meanwhile, said she's looking forward to returning to London in February 2014, where she'll perform five sold-out shows at the O2 Arena. "I can't wait to be back," she said. "I'm just so honored."
