Even royals are Swifties: Prince William celebrates birthday with family at Taylor Swift’s London concert 

As Taylor Swift kicked off her first show out of eight at London’s Wembley Stadium, a few special guests were in the crowd.

With more than 88,000 in attendance, some fans couldn’t help but notice Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte in a private suite. A video posted of William dancing to ‘Shake It Off’ shows the royals are like many across the world; Swifties.  William was clearly having a blast as he shimmied along. 

The following morning, multiple posts on social media showed the royals enjoying the big show that brought thousands to Wembley.

The Prince and Princess of Wales posted a photo showing Taylor taking a selfie with a beaming Princess Charlotte alongside her brother and dad. Just moments after. Taylor posted on her own account saying ‘Happy Birthday M8.’ What fans were even more excited about is this photo also featured Taylor’s boyfriend, Kansas City Chief’s Travis Kelce. 

It was later confirmed that William’s cousin, Zara Tindall, and her husband, Mike, were at the show with their daughter, Mia.

The selfie sparked multiple comments on social media. The Princess of Wales was at home with Prince Louis as she continues her treatment for cancer. However, with another run of shows in August at Wembley, maybe we could see the royals make another appearance.
