Taylor Swift kicked off the London leg of her Eras Tour at a sold-out Wembley stadium, performing to fans, celebrities and politicians alike.

In amongst the crowd of nearly 90,000 fans, rumour has it that Prince William celebrated his 42nd birthday dancing the night away with his three young children – Prince George, ten, Princess Charlotte, nine, and Prince Louis, six – although Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

Prince William and megastar Swift have a history – the unlikely pair shared the stage at Kensington Palace to perform Livin’ On A Prayer with Jon Bon Jovi at a charity event in 2013.

Although this performance took place more than a decade ago, it would appear the royals have continued to be committed fans of Ms Swift.

Today the military band at Buckingham Palace performed a rendition of Ms Swift’s 2014 hit Shake It Off to mark the Eras Tour arriving in the UK capital.

Tonight was made even more memorable for Ms Swift, 34, as she was reunited with her boyfriend Travis Kelce after a month apart.

The American football player, 34, flew in from Cannes with his older brother, Jason.

Ms Swift and Kelce, who are nearing their first anniversary, have not been seen together for over a month after they last enjoyed a romantic lunch on Lake Como, Italy, in May.

The Kansas City Chiefs star has so far been unable to support his girlfriend on the UK leg of her tour due to training commitments.

Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan, 34, was among the star-studded crowd who joined Kelce in the VIP area alongside Swift’s close friend, model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne.

Another familiar face in the massive crowd was Labour leader Keir Starmer who took a ‘Swift break’ from the general election campaign to enjoy the concert with his wife. 

Ms Swift was clearly overwhelmed by the 89,000-strong crowd and said: ‘Oh my god London, look what you’ve done. What better way to spend a Friday night than in the most exhilarating city in the world.’

Her first show in London was always going to be special for her as she shares a close affiliation with the city after she called it her second home for the six years she was dating British actor Joe Alwyn.

Ms Swift has also dated several British heartthrobs including singer Harry Styles and actor Tom Hiddleston.

Today is the first of three sold out dates at Wembley, with the international sensation returning in August to perform another five.

Taylor’s adoring fans were brimming with anticipation to know if she would perform any of her London-inspired hit songs.

Fans predicted that the American megastar would choose a London-themed tune as her surprise song. 

Many hoped for Swift’s more melancholy hits such as ‘So Long, London’ and ‘The Black Dog’ from her recent album The Tortured Poets Department.

As the sparkling night drew to a close, the star sang Hits Different and Death by a Thousand Cuts – both of which have no reference to the English capital city.

But fans went wild when Taylor took to the piano and began singing her recent hit The Black Dog, as many predicted she would.

‘The Black Dog’ is largely believed to be about 1975 singer, Matty Healy, who she reportedly had a brief two week relationship with following her break-up with Alwyn.

The lyrics seemingly reference a Vauxhall pub, as well as band – The Starting Line – whose songs The 1975 have covered several times during their tour.

Megan, 26, who hails from Birmingham said it was ‘amazing’ as she prepared to see the star.

She told the Evening Standard: ‘It’s amazing to be here. Taylor is such a great example of female empowerment. I love country music and that’s how I got into her.

‘I’m just so excited to be here. It was like a war to get tickets online but now I’m here it’s all worth it.’ 

Luna Musch, who travelled from the Netherlands added: ‘I can’t believe I’m here – I love her and her music. She is so positive. Her talent is just incredible.’

The doors at Wembley officially opened at 4.30pm, with Mette and Paramore taking to the stage from 5.45pm before Taylor at 7.30pm.

Since she has ventured across South America, US and Asia, whilst also performing in several cities across Europe, with her NFL boyfriend Travis Kelce supporting from the crowd. 

This month alone, she has already sang to packed out crowds in Edinburgh, Liverpool and Cardiff.

However, the superstar’s 100th show of her record-breaking Eras Tour last Thursday at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool didn’t quite go off without a hitch.

The international pop sensation hailed the commitment to the countless fans who braved the rain to catch a glimpse of her landmark show.

And while the 53,000 crowd packed into Anfield stadium to cheer along to her greatest hits for three hours – not everyone left completely satisfied.

Certain VIP ticketholders were left briefly disgruntled after paying to sit behind a white tent – largely blocking the view of their beloved idol.

And poor VIP seat placements weren’t the only mishap of the night as eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot the huge screen showcasing Taylor’s performance had momentarily switched off.

However, London is still overcome with Swiftmania, as a military band at Buckingham Palace performed a rendition her smash-hit Shake It Off today.

In celebration of Taylor’s arrival to London, a video titled Changing of the Guard (Taylor’s Version), was posted on X (formerly Twitter) by the Royal family’s official account.

The band stood on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace blasting  trumpets, saxophones and other wind instruments, as the caption read: ‘Can’t stop, won’t stop groovin’.’

Taylor-fever has already gripped the bustling, with a host of special events taking over London, such as a Taylor trail, a special Tube map and even two new Swift-themed artworks on display at Wembley Park.
