One Direction for Diamond Jubilee? Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson to sing for Queen?

Can things get any better for One Direction? Like really?

Yesterday it was announced that the boys had broke all sorts of records in America, after their debut album ‘Up All Night’ went straight to number one in the US Billboard charts, only a week after it’s release.

Today, it has been revealed that the stars may be about to play for royalty, as X Factor judge Gary Barlow is keen to add them to the lineup for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert.

It will be a tight squeeze for the boys, as they will be just finished both their Australian and US headline tours and will have to jet straight back to the UK for the gig, if they agree to appear.

Harry Styles recently admitted that he’d love to meet the Queen, telling The Mirror:

“I’d love to meet Her Royal Highness.!”

He is also keen to spend some bonding time with Sir Paul McCartney, after all the comparisons that have been drawn between 1D and The Beatles over the last few weeks.

The curly haired cutie added:

“I grew up listening to the Beatles….They’re quite an inspiration.

“It’d be amazing if Paul McCartney was up for doing something… I love him. That would be incredible.

“We’ve got a lot of big plans but I’m sure anything would be struck out of the diary if an invitation came along.”

A concert insider explained that a 1D appearance at the Jubilee celebrations is likely, adding:

“Obviously Gary has close connections with Simon Cowell and The X Factor, and is keen to get One Direction signed up.

“A few things need to be moved around but hopefully the boys will be signed up by the end of the month.”

Meanwhile, after taking the US by storm in recent weeks, One Direction announced yesterday that they will be conducting their own 20 date tour in America and we have all the date and details here.

Also, all the travelling and work is taking it’s toll on poor old Harry, as he recently admitted that he has started regular vitamin injections in his bum, to help him cope with exhaustion and being run down.
