Travis Kelce has opened up about what it was like meeting royalty after he took a selfie with Prince William, Prince George, and Prince Charlotte at his girlfriend Taylor Swift's show.

After months of dating, Taylor finally shared her first official photo with Travis on Instagram from her recent London leg of her Eras Tour, and the pair were joined by some royal pals, too.

Prince William and two of his children had attended the show and stopped off backstage to meet the singer and her NFL star boyfriend.

Travis has opened up about the experience, revealing that the future monarch was a 'cool motherf***er'.

Speaking on their New Heights podcast, Travis and his brother Jason Kelce discussed how they were given a "warning" before they were able to meet the royals.

Travis began by saying: "We met royalty guys. That's right, there was royalty at the show.

"Dude, he was the coolest motherf***er. He was so cool! I didn’t realize this, 'cause obviously we’re backstage meeting him, because he was there with little George and Charlotte, and they were an absolute delight to meet.

"Wasn’t sure if I was supposed to like bow to them, curtsy, just be an American idiot and shake their hand."

Jason then revealed that they "did get warning" about how to properly greet the royals, adding: "But they said that because we weren’t at like an official royal event, we didn’t need to bow or curtsy. If it would have been like an official meeting of royalty event, then it would have been that.

"But I did still address him as Your Royal Highness. I've never felt emasculated. And I did. That was the closest I've ever been."

Jason added that while meeting Prince William was pretty cool, he was blown away by nine-year-old Princess Charlotte and her confidence in holding a conversation.

He explained: "The highlight was Princess Charlotte, Prince George was great too, but she was so f***ing adorable.

"I cannot express how much of a superstar she was. Maybe it's because I have three girls now, but she had fire to her, she was asking questions, that was the most electric part of it."

The meeting happened backstage at Taylor's Eras Tour show at London's Wembley Stadium and their epic selfie was shared on June 21, Prince William's 42nd birthday.

The future king appeared to be enjoying the show just as much as his children, as other concertgoers snapped videos of him joyfully 'dad dancing' in the crowd.

Watch the moment below:


As well as hanging out with the royals, Jason and Travis also appear to be big fans of London itself, adding: "The beers, they're a little bit tastier over here, they've been doing it for a little bit longer, it does taste really nice over here.

"The scenery is awesome, it kind of switches depending on which part of London you're in, and I like that."

Travis also revealed that he would only ever leave the Kansas City Chiefs if he were scouted for a team in London as he thinks the city is "awesome".
