The two became pals when "he asked to meet me" in 1974 — years before Charles would marry Princess Diana — the singer recalled.

"So he came to the recording studio," she shared. "I offered him a sip of tea and I thought, 'They didn't have to test me for poison or something? No.'"

The two then "became friends, and I loved spending some time at Highgrove for a weekend fundraiser and going through his gardens," the actress noted.

Later on, the Funny Girl alum was staying in a hotel in London, and she noticed some fresh flowers.

"I said, 'Who sent me that?'" she recalled telling her assistant. "And she said, 'A fan called Charles.' And I said, 'Really? Let me see the note' — and there was his seal. And they weren't like from a florist because they were from his gardens and it's a different look."

Streisand's assistant "just mistook it for a fan. It was so funny, I thought. That's Prince Charles!"

Earlier this year, Charles spoke highly of the Oscar winner.

“I have always been a great admirer of the incredibly versatile American actress and singer Barbra Streisand,” the prince said. “Back in 1974, when I was serving in the Royal Navy … as a young lieutenant in the frigate HMS Jupiter, we called into the United States navy’s base in San Diego, California … when I heard that she was currently making the film [Funny Lady, a sequel to Funny Girl] in the Warner Brothers Studios … I was lucky enough to visit the set and to meet her there.”

During a 2019 concert in Hyde Park, Streisand joked about what could have been, saying: “If I had played my cards right, I could have been the first Jewish princess.”
