Niall Horan Has Lunch With The Queen

The Queen has hosted a reception for more than 300 Irish people including One Direction singer Niall Horan, X-Factor judge Louis Walsh and former boxer Barry McGuigan.

The Buckingham Palace event was held to mark the contribution made by Irish people in Britain.

A Palace spokesman said: "It was a really fun evening - great company and extremely relaxed.

"Her Majesty seemed to enjoy the craic."

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh met guests from the world of sport, business, politics, the arts and community work who were deemed to have made a positive contribution to Britain.

Also among the guests were fashion designer Orla Kiely, racehorse trainer Jonjo O'Neill, former Formula One racing boss Eddie Jordan, singer Imelda May and Father Ted writers Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews.

Niall Horan described being at the palace as "mind-blowing".


Baby Theo Horan Gets Christened Today!

Being a member of One Direction is bound to take up practically all of your spare time – but Niall Horan has still got time to be an ‘amazing’ godfather.

The Irish singer has been touring the world since the start of this year with the 1D lads – Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne – and when they’re not on stage they’re working new music, promoting or attending glitzy showbiz awards bashes.

But when Niall was asked to be the godfather of his brother Greg and his wife Denise’s little baby boy Theo, he jumped at the chance.

‘Niall dotes on Theo and sent gifts home for him while on tour,’ a source told The Sun.

‘He surprised his brother Greg and (sister in law) Denise with a beautiful crib for Theo soon after he was born and loves spoiling him.’

Theo, now three months, is being christened today, Nov 9th and Niall is making a special trip back home to Mullingar to be there.


Niall Horan Talks Body Hair & Tweezers

Niall Horan might be one of the most sought after, eligible young bachelors around but he admitted that he, like the best of us, suffers from unwanted body hair.

The One Direction star has had to amend his personal grooming routine of late and in a brand new interview this week he admitted that he’s started working on his facial hair.

While Liam Payne is doing his best to grow a manly looking beard, Niall is more concerned with removing hair from his face and he admitted that he’s taking steps to reduce his monobrow while on tour.

Horan has a trusty pair of tweezers and has put them to good use and he revealed:

“Now I have to start plucking my eye brow because I have one eyebrow instead of two.”

Maybe that’s why he got those huge glasses this week. Perhaps they help hide the brow!

The lads are currently performing down under and wrapping up the last leg of their Take Me Home tour. They will finish the Australian shows by the end of the month, before performing two last concerts in Japan and then it will be back to the UK for some promo work on their new album Midnight Memories.

The constant work is apparently getting to Harry Styles, who is reportedly exhausted and homesick and he was so ill yesterday that he threw up three times during a concert in Melbourne.

However, he seemed to be in top form at a different show earlier this week and an eagle eyed fan managed to capture this footage at his flipping the bird to one of his crew members under the stage. How amused with himself does he look?
