Scottish rock band Franz Ferdinand are set to play British royal residence Buckingham Palace, at the request of famous fan Prince William.

The 22-year-old future king and student, has asked the TAKE ME OUT group to be guests at his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's Christmas Reception, honouring those who have made a special contribution to British life this year (04), next month (DEC04).

LAURENCE BELL, spokesperson for the group's record company Domino, says, "They were dumbfounded."

A Buckingham Palace source comments, "The guest list is drawn up by courtiers.

"The Queen doesn't normally make recommendations, but members of the Royal Family can give suggestions.

"I understand Prince William suggested the group because he is a fan."
