William posted a photo of his children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, backstage at Taylor Swift’s concert on Friday at Wembley Stadium.

The American pop star seemed equally delighted, posting a selfie in X with the three royals and her boyfriend Travis Kelce, alongside the caption “Happy Bday M8!” (Happy Birthday my friend!)

“The London concerts are off to a wonderful start,” she added.

A video widely shared on social media shows William, heir to the throne, dancing energetically to Taylor Swift’s hit Shake it off.

Among the approximately 90,000 fans packed into the stadium was Keir Starmer, leader of the Labor Party, who took advantage of an election campaign evening to attend Friday evening’s concert with his wife.

Mr Starmer said on Saturday that Taylor Swift had been “absolutely fantastic”.

“I’m not going to pretend that I bought every album and know every song, but Exchange is my favorite song for obvious reasons,” he told reporters during his campaign, referring to his election slogan.

Taylor Swift is touring the UK as part of the European leg of her tour Eras.

She will give another concert in London on Sunday before returning to the British capital in August.

The star has already played gigs in Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cardiff, and will next head to Dublin.

The London Mayor’s Office announced Thursday that the tour’s London shows would generate £300 million (or more than $519 million Canadian) for the city’s economy.

Several murals dedicated to Taylor Swift, as well as a special subway map, whose stations are named after songs, were created to mark her tour.
