A recent Taylor Swift concert in London as part of the Eras Tour was a revelation for NFL star Travis Kelce. In an episode of the "New Heights" podcast with his brother, Jason Kelce, Travis recounted how he met Prince William and referred to the Duke as the "coolest motherf---er." Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis also shared his story about how he got confused about how to approach royalty.

"He was there with little George and Charlotte," he said, describing William and Kate Middleton’s children, aged 10 and 9. Travis was mesmerized by their presence and said, "They were absolutely a delight to meet. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to bow to them, curtsy, just be an American idiot and shake their hands, like, ‘Sup, dude.’ We wanted to be polite." Jason, who used to be a Philadelphia Eagles player, also noted that since they were not at a royal occasion, they did not have to bow.

He chuckled and said Travis made it a point to keep it at least 10 feet away from him out of respect for it.

Royal Encounter Highlights

The brothers applauded Prince William for allowing his children to be themselves. Jason said, "Prince William was fantastic, but the highlight was Princess Charlotte." he added: This girl was so adorable.

She had a spark; she was inquiring, and perhaps because I had three daughters now, that impressed me. Aside from the encounter with the Royals, the Kelces also talked about the Taylor Swift concert, which made Jason cry. The podcast episode seems to have been recorded after the Friday concert show but before the Sunday moment when Travis was with Swift on the stage during the change of the skit for "I Can Do It With a Broken Heart." Travis who has been dating Swift since summer of 2023 suggested that there would be more moments to come.

Even Swift herself posted about how happy she was to have her boyfriend on stage, she stated, "I was cracking up/swooning." Their love was brought to light even more when Swift posted a picture of Travis, Prince William, her and the young royals taking a selfie.

This royal meet-up occurred just a week after Jason offended many people with his comment during a podcast episode when he said, 'f--k kings.'
