Prince William reveals he’s a secret Taylor Swift fan

Turns out the Prince of Wales is also a big Taylor Swift fan.

Prince William has hinted he’s a huge Taylor Swift fan while attending the 2023 Tusk Conservation Awards, earlier this week. While speaking to the future king, Rolling Stones member Ronnie Wood said: “We were talking about the tour and I said, ‘Come on, you’ve got to come out on tour,” and William said: “[He would] if we could get Taylor Swift there.”

Ronnie continued by informing the Prince of Wales that fellow bandmate Mick Jagger recently performed with Swift, where he exclaimed: “I’m there then.”


William also recounted a fond memory from 2021 with the international pop sensation, telling Apple Fitness+’s Time to Walk series: “After Jon [Bon Jovi] does his first song, there’s a pause, and [Taylor Swift] turns to me. She puts her hand on my arm, looks me in the eye, and says, ‘Come on, William. Let’s go and sing.”

He continued, “I still do not know what came over me. Honestly, even now I’m cringing at what happened next, and I don’t understand why I gave in. But, frankly, if Taylor Swift looks you in the eye, touches your arm, and says, ‘Come with me…’ I got up like a puppy and went, ‘Yeah, okay, that seems like a great idea.”
