Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce has seen his fame skyrocket after he began dating pop star Taylor Swift.

Now he’s becoming an international celebrity as his star continues to rise. 

And Travis Kelce said two words about Prince William that took everyone by surprise.

Travis Kelce heads to London for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour

Pop megastar Taylor Swift made a highly anticipated stop in London, where she played eight sold-out shows at the famed Wembley Stadium as part of her Eras Tours.

Her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce, was spotted at several of the shows. 

The London concerts brought out the biggest celebrities in the country, including members of the British Royal Family.

Prince William brought two of his children to see the show, where he was seen dancing to her song “Shake it Off.”

Kelce had a chance to detail his meeting with members of the British Royal Family at the Swift concert on his podcast New Heights with his brother Jason Kelce.

The Chiefs star called meeting Prince William “so cool.”

“Dude, he was the coolest motherf***er,” Travis said. “He was so cool.”

“He was awesome,” Jason replied.

The Chiefs star explained that he met William and his kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, backstage at the concert.

“I didn’t realize this because obviously we’re backstage meeting him because he was there with little George and Charlotte, and they were an absolute delight to meet,” Travis continued.

The Cleveland native admitted he wasn’t sure what the etiquette was for greeting a member of the Royal Family.

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

Jason Kelce said that a member of the Royal entourage told them how to handle the delicate situation.

“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,” Jason said.

Jason Kelce cleaned up his act for his royal meeting

Travis said that his brother straightened up his act to meet William and his family.

“You put your beer, like, 10 feet away from you,” Travis noted.

Jason Kelce was pictured holding a plastic cup of beer in his teeth at one of the London concerts.

“I didn’t have it in my teeth when I met him [Prince William],” Jason joked.

He said that he was surprised by how down-to-earth the Royals seemed in their meeting.

“They were wonderful people, and that’s what it’s about. You know?,” Jason explained. “Obviously, literally part of a monarchy, Royalty. Yeah. Hard to be a down-to-earth human being, I would assume. But came off that way completely.”

Travis Kelce is getting to travel the world and meet some major celebrities as he follows his girlfriend on the European leg of her tour.
