Watch the moment King Charles gave a playful response to Maya Jama after she apologised for breaking royal protocol by touching him at a Princes’ Trust event years ago. 

The Love Island host, 29, greeted the King, 75, and Queen Camilla, 76, as she attended the Sovereign’s Creative Industries Garden Party at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

Maya said: ‘Nice to meet you. Well, I’ve actually met you before, a long time ago. About something with the Princes’ Trust and I touched you. I wasn’t supposed to. This time I won’t.’ 

Laughing, King Charles told her: ‘Don’t worry about it’ to which she responded: ‘You don’t mind, yeah?’. 

There are no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting a member of the Royal Family, but many people wish to observe the traditional forms. It’s best to not initiate touching unless the royal gives you their arm.

The Royal then asked her: ‘How are you getting on?’

‘I host Love Island. I don’t know if you watch that though. That’s like a reality dating show. That’s what I do,’ Maya said. 

But King Charles didn’t seem familiar with the hit ITV2 dating show as he told her: ‘There’s One Born Every Minute’ – a Channel 4 show which documents the drama and emotion of a maternity unit, from the perspective of the parents-to-be and the maternity ward staff. 

Maya said: ‘There is, yeah.’

The TV host later took to Instagram to share a text exchange with her friend. They wrote: ‘Gift that keeps on giving. I love the fact you said the words: “I touched you but I wasn’t supposed to” to the King of the United Kingdom’. Maya replied: ‘Lol. How do you know that’.

To which her friend replied: ‘Mate! It’s on Sky News’.

The television personality looked incredible in a blue patterned dress. Leaving her long dark tresses loose in waves, Maya wore a coordinated eye-catching blue fascinator. 

She added inches to her frame in a pair of black towering heels and toted her belongings around in a matching handbag.  

At the garden party, which was thrown to celebrate the Creative Industries of the United Kingdom, Maya met King Charles and Queen Camilla.

What is the protocol for meeting a member of the royal family?  

There are no obligatory codes of behaviour when meeting a member of the Royal Family, but many people wish to observe the traditional forms.

For men this is a neck bow (from the head only) whilst women do a small curtsy. Other people prefer simply to shake hands in the usual way.

It’s best to not initiate touching unless the royal gives you their arm.

The King, 75, looked dapper in a three-piece suit which included a grey blazer and matching trousers along with a pink silk waistcoat, patterned tie and black polished shoes.

His Royal Highness – who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer – tied the look together with a black top hat and came prepared for the unpredictable British weather with an umbrella. 

Queen Camilla looked regal and cut a sophisticated figure in a long-sleeved baby pink flared dress with fringe detailing.

She paired with a diamond flower brooch, a cream hat, a simple eggshell-coloured matching handbag and monochrome heels.

Some of the guests at the event included model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Tess Daly, Dame Arlene Phillips, Alex Jones, Roman Kemp and Vernon Kay.  

The occasion brought together approximately 4,000 representatives across culture, art, heritage, film, TV, radio and fashion.

Taking to Instagram, Maya beamed as she told her followers she was ‘off to a very snazzy affair’. 

It comes after Maya made sure all eyes were on her in a black figure hugging dress as she attended her Beauty Works party at JOIA in Battersea on Monday.
