Dolly Parton ‘Honored and Flattered’ by Invite From Kate Middleton

By Movieguide® Contributor

Dolly Parton is setting the record straight about her recent invitation to join Kate Middleton for tea.

“I was honored and flattered that she even asked me,” Parton said about the royal invite. However, she added that she had to decline — “I only had one full day and I did not have a second to do anything else besides work.”

This isn’t Parton’s first brush with royalty. She met the late Queen Elizabeth in 1977.

“I was scared to death that I was not going to know how to curtsy, that I wasn’t going to bend right, but she was just very warm, very sweet, and I could tell she was a very giving person,” she told Insider. “And just meeting the Queen of England, just to meet a queen, it was amazing.”

The country star made sure to emphasize that she would love to spend some time with Middleton if the two could find a date that worked for them both. She explained that she would like to discuss both their efforts to help children in need through their various charity initiatives. 

“So maybe that’s what we can talk about when we do have tea,” Parton said. “I think she’s adorable, and I hope someday to be able to sit down and have a good conversation with her.”

Parton has given over 220 million books to children through her Imagination Library project, which launched in 1995. 

“I always say God didn’t let me have children so that all kids could be mine,” she said in an interview with Saga Magazine via Fox News. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Parton’s humanitarian efforts:

Dolly Parton is sharing how she trusts God with her dreams and prayers. 

“I dreamed big and I prayed big,” she said of her life. “Then I worked like the dickens at the opportunities the Lord put before me.”

“‘How can you use me?’ I ask God. ‘What can I do today?’” she explained. “I’m a light sleeper, and I get up in the wee hours of the morning. That’s my prayer time, the easiest time to reach out to God, in the quiet and calm before everybody has woken up and phones start buzzing and e-mails ding.”

Parton continued, “I’m alone with God and can ask for his direction. Dreams flood in, dreams so big they seem unattainable. How can I do that? How is that possible? I’ve learned over the years to trust the dreams to God. No telling what will happen. And it will happen if it’s supposed to happen.”
