How Downton Abbey Led Sam Smith To This Royal Mistake...

Awkward!

Sam Smith's love of Downton Abbey meant he made a bit of a faux pas when he met the royals. 

Instead of the understated head nod and handshake, Smith went all out... with a bow that saw him at a right angle. 

“My issue is that I watch too much Downtown Abbey,” Smith told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

“You get instructions, they say you’ve got to bow with one arm behind your back. If someone tells you to bow — I properly went for it!”

Easy mistake to make, right!? 

At least Prince William seemed amused...
