Thousands of Swifties have descended Wembley as the sports stadium is glittering with sequins – as Taylor Swift is set to host the second night of her Eras Tour in London.

Last night the American megastar, 34, sent the capital into a frenzy as she delighted 90,000 fans with renditions of Hits Different, Death By A Thousand Cuts and The Black Dog.

But the most stunning moment of the night came as the star took one of the most iconic pop-culture selfies of all time – posing up next to Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte as the delighted royals shared a moment with the singer.

Earlier in the concert, the Prince of Wales had stunned the crowds as he was spotted pulling out his best dad-dancing moves as the trio partied through the concert alongside thousands of other Londoners.

Ms Swift was clearly overwhelmed by the huge crowd in the capital last night 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 capital after she called it her second home for the six years she was dating British actor Joe Alwyn.

A host of A-list celebrities including Mission Impossible star Tom Cruise, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Hugh Grant are among thousands of Swifties who have descended on the capital for another night of her sell-out Eras tour.

Last night the American megastar, 34, sent the capital into a frenzy as she delighted 90,000 fans with renditions of Hits Different, Death By A Thousand Cuts and The Black Dog.

But the most stunning moment of the night came as the star took one of the most iconic pop-culture selfies of all time – posing up next to Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte as the delighted royals shared a moment with the singer.

Wembley prepares to host Swifties as they descend on the capital

Wembley Stadium is preparing to host thousands of Swifties as the famously-fanatical fans descend on the capital.

They have renamed signs to ‘Taylor’s Version’, including ‘Swiftie Steps’ as friendship bracelets are already being exchanged in west London.

She may have said so long to London in her latest album – but Taylor Swift is set to rekindle her love affair with the city later this month.

The pop sensation, 34, is performing three consecutive nights at Wembley Stadium from 21 June as part of her Eras Tour, which has grossed over $1bn worldwide.

The star will then return in August to play a further five sold-out shows, which will be attended by over 450,000 Swifties.

However, the star – who previously professed her love for ‘London Boy’ Joe Alwyn – has a long-standing and complicated history with the UK’s capital city.

Taylor is first referenced London in her 2012 song ‘Come Back… Be Here’ where she pines after a mystery man, singing: ‘You’re in London and I break down ’cause it’s not fair that you’re not around.’

Swift performed to nearly 90,000 adoring fans at a sold-out Wembley Stadium last night – but one family got to share a very special moment with the American megastar.

A sweet selfie taken by Taylor showed the moment the Queen of Pop met fellow royalty as Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte posed with her backstage.

The Love Story singer’s NFL beau Travis Kelce also smiled for the photograph while wearing his Team USA Olympics hat.

Although the selfie was truly star-studded, royal fans were only drawn to Charlotte.

With her pink sparkling dress, plaited hair and wide toothy grin, people could not help but compare the young princess to Queen Elizabeth II.

Taylor Swift’s eight sold out shows at Wembley are predicted to bring a £300million boost to the London economy.

The hitmaker is currently in the UK as part of the European leg of her billion dollar Eras tour.

The singer, 34, is set to perform three dates in at the 90,000 capacity venue over the weekend before returning for five more nights from the 15-20th of August.

With a total of 640,000 tickets sold, Greater London Authority are expecting fans to spend an average of £471 per person,

Taylor has also taken over a giant car park at the stadium to create a merchandise stall which has been open since Wednesday, two days prior to the shows kicking off.

It may now be clear where Prince Louis gets his moves from as William’s ‘dad dancing’ at the Taylor Swift concert last night was just like his son’s cheeky shapes at a Jubilee event back in 2022.

The Prince of Wales delighted Swifties as he broke out some moves during Taylor’s performance of Shake It Off at Wembley last night.

Prince William was joined by his children George and Charlotte at the sold-out gig but his youngest son Louis stayed at home with Princess Catherine.

This, however, does not stop striking similarities being drawn between the father and son duo’s dance moves.

Prince Louis was filmed moving his waist with both his hands in the air during the Jubilee Pageant to mark the 70th anniversary of the succession of the late Queen Elizabeth II to the throne.

On Friday, the songstress, 34, kicked off the London leg of her record-breaking Eras Tour – performing to fans, celebrities and politicians alike – as well as her American footballer boyfriend Travis Kelce.

Model Cara, 31, danced the night away on Friday with her socialite sister Poppy, 38, before posing for a selfie with Bridgerton actress Nicola, 37, and Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness, 37.

Royalty even headed to Wembley to see Taylor in action. The Prince of Wales was among the 90,000-strong crowd in London showing off his moves to Shake It Off as he celebrated his 42nd birthday with George, 10, Charlotte, nine, and Louis, six.

Mike, 45, and Zara Tindall, 43, also proved to be Swifties as they too headed to the spectacular show.

Taylor Swift is already familiar with London, having lived in the city with her ex-boyfriend and ‘London Boy’ Joe Alwyn, as well as dating other British heartthrobs such as Harry Styles and Tom Hiddleston.

She’s so familiar with London that she even has a favourite kebab shop and pub, and makes a string of references to the city in her music.

Here, MailOnline looks inside Taylor Swift’s London life:

Taylor Swift fans have revealed a secret shortcut to beat the crowds at the star’s sell-out Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium tonight.

Some 90,000 people are set to descend on Wembley as the Bad Blood songstress starts a mammoth four-day musical marathon at the arena – to the delight of her London fans.

And as the star prepares for her performance in the capital tonight, fans have unveiled secret shortcuts to save time and beat the crowds when travelling via Wembley Park tube station, which is anticipated to become congested with concertgoers tonight.

TikTok user @GMurphy101 shared: ‘Walk down the side of the Wembley arena, turn right onto Empire Way and walk down to the tube station. Takes five to ten minutes – or stay in this queue for hours!’

A Taylor Swift fan was left furious after she was paid a staggering £700 for a VIP ticket which ended up having an ‘obstructed view’.

The frustrated fan took to TikTok as she struggled to see the singer during her first live gig of the iconic Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium on Friday night.

‘Wembley section 123 has an obstructed view of 100% of the diamond stage’, before claiming ‘(ticket was sold as a VIP unobstructed seat).’

She continued: ‘AXS sold this obstructed ticket for £700.’

The user added nevertheless it was a ‘brilliant night’ thanks to Taylor, but wasn’t happy with her purchase as it seemed very overpriced for the view.

The Prince and Princess of Wales’s official X account posted the adorable photo with the caption: ‘Thank you Taylor Swift for a great evening!’

During the concert, where the pop star performed in front of fans, celebrities and politicians, as well as her American footballer boyfriend Travis Kelce, the Prince of Wales, 42, was filmed breaking out his best ‘dad dancing’ moves as Taylor sang her hit Shake it Off.

The sweet selfie shared by the Queen of Pop did not mark her first encounter with William.

In November 2013, the pair made headlines when they took to the stage during a charity event to sing a song together – with Jon Bon Jovi.

Prince William took his children to old friend Taylor Swift’s sell-out London gig last night as he celebrated his 42nd birthday – along with fellow royals Zara and Mike Tindall, plus Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and his wife Victoria.

Taylor kicked off the London leg of her record-breaking Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium, performing to fans, celebrities and politicians alike – as well as her American footballer boyfriend Travis Kelce.

The Prince of Wales was among the 90,000-strong crowd in London for the hottest ticket in town – celebrating his 42nd birthday dancing the night away with his three young children Prince George, 10, nine-year-old Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, six.

Taylor Swift is back!

Good evening and welcome to MailOnline’s live coverage of Taylor Swift’s second night at Wembley as thousands of Swifties descend on London.

Last night the American megastar, 34, sent the capital into a frenzy as she delighted 90,000 fans with renditions of Hits Different, Death By A Thousand Cuts and The Black Dog.

But the most stunning moment of the night came as the star took one of the most iconic pop-culture selfies of all time – posing up next to Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte as the delighted royals shared a moment with the singer.
