The 25-year-old singer, who has taken a short break from appearing in the West End play Breakfast At Tiffany's to record new material, beamed as she was introduced to Charles.
She had jetted back from Cannes after wowing on the red carpet and on the town with model beau Oliver Cheshire over the past few days.
She added: 'I've met some amazing people today. It's lovely to hear their stories and how much more confidence they have from working with the Trust, and the way they've turned their lives around.'

'To meet them and hear their now un-interrupted confidence and self worth is so beautiful, having had their lives shattered by illness or poverty or abuse,' Sir Ben said.
'It's not throwing money at the problem, it's throwing intelligence and care and affection, and I think at the centre of it is HRH's profound affection for what he does and the people for whom he does it.
'I think he's a very unique combination of enormous compassion, without ego - it's a very rare combination.'

Sir Ben presented Charles with a digital book of memories - a touch screen device containing photos and recollections recorded by young people and supporters of the trust and gathered during a nationwide road show.
The trust began when the prince became concerned that too many young people were being excluded from society through a lack of opportunity.
In 1976, when he left the Royal Navy, he used the £7,400 he received in severance pay to fund a number of community schemes - these early initiatives were the founding projects of his charity.
During the past 40 years it has grown to become Britain's leading youth charity and has reached more than 825,000 young people in total, with three in four achieving a positive outcome - moving into education, employment or training.
