Jockey Paul Carberry jokes that Niall could be either John or Edward Grimes
It seems Niall Horan‘s huge blond quiff has made him resemble an Irish set of twins.
The One Direction singer, 20, was told he looked a bit like Jedward in a jokey Tweet from jockey Paul Carberry yesterday, who he’d hung out with the night before.
Niall and Paul, 40, had both been invited to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace, in an event to celebrate the Irish community in Great Britain.
‘great to finally meet jedwerd one of my dreams came through,’ Tweeted Paul.
Niall replied: ‘ur some eegit carberry.’
Paul and Niall – who hails from Mullingar, County Westmeath – joined over 300 Irish people from business, politics, the arts, showbiz, sport and charity at the do.
They posed for a funny selfie with Paul‘s fellow jockeys Barry Geraghty and Mick Kinane, quipping that they’d started a new band called No Direction.
It seems Niall may have received a bit of ribbing from the group throughout the evening.
‘hope all is well sorry about the slagging last night it was good old crack,’ Tweeted Paul yesterday.
Niall replied: ‘all is great carberry! Serious laugh wasn’t it?’
