‘She’ll make you shake’ Tom Jones admits meeting with Queen left him feeling intimidated
Sir Tom Jones has rubbed shoulders with a number of stars over the years from Elvis Presley to Frank Sinatra. However, the person that the 81-year-old musician was most intimidated by was Her Majesty the Queen.
Tom, who was knighted by the monarch in 2005, said “she’ll make you shake” during a recent question and answer session.
The singer made his admission when asked to name someone that intimidated him or that he was scared to meet.
“The Queen,” he told AV Club, before going into more details.
Tom said the royal had made him shake with nerves.

“So the Queen, she’ll make you shake. I don’t care who it is.
“She doesn’t mean to, but she does. I mean, to me, if you’re a royalist,” he continued.
The Voice UK star went on to say that receiving his knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II was a “big deal”.
He described it as one of the biggest things to have happened to him in his life.
“I’m excited. I’ve met her lots of times, ever since the 60s when I did what they called the Royal Command performance.
“I think it was 1966 when I first met her, it was the London Palladium,” he recalled.
“I think she likes to jig to Sex Bomb,” the singer cheekily added.
“She’s lovely, it’s nice to see her and she lights up when you talk to her. She really takes an interest in what you say.”
