Ed Sheeran received career advice from Prince William.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker has revealed the British royal advised him to never duet with soccer star Wayne Rooney again after seeing a YouTube video of them singing Ed's hit single 'Lego House'.

Explaining that the conversation took place at the Royal Variety Performance earlier this month, Ed said William joked: "Er, no more duets with Wayne Rooney."

The 23-year-old star also spoke about how he came to record the performance with his unlikely singing partner - who plays soccer for Manchester United.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Rooney's been trying to come to a gig for three years.

"He actually booked me for his birthday party, but I had a gig the same night.

"Coleen [Rooney, his wife] came down to my Leeds show and said Wayne was going to come down to Manchester with a load of mates.

"She asked if I wanted to go out afterwards. I said I didn't want to go to a club, but Wayne hates clubs as well, so they rented out a lovely dingy pub that just did Jagerbombs and beer."

However, Ed wasn't the only famous face at the bash, as he also partied until 4am with Example and Wretch 32, before taking everyone back to his hotel room until 7am.

Meanwhile, the flame-haired singer confessed he's unsure whether William and his wife, Duchess Catherine like his music as much as they claim to.

He added: "I don't know if they're fans. Do royals have iPods and things like that?"
