Pop’s biggest star finally landed in London over the weekend – and she was watched by an entourage of celebs


Did you attend the Wembley leg of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour? If so, you were in esteemed company: a plethora of big names attended the tour across three nights – 21, 22 and 23 June – proving Swift’s appeal to the masses. Spanning royalty, news reporters and Hollywood directors, here are all of the big names spotted at Wembley over the weekend.

Celebrity Appearances At The Eras Tour At Wembley

Prince Willam, Prince George & Princess Charlotte

If you were first in line to the British throne, how would you celebrate your 42nd birthday? With the queen of pop, of course. That’s exactly what Prince William did on Friday (21 June), dancing away to Swift’s greatest hits with his eldest two kids George and Charlotte in tow (sadly, no Prince Louis or Princess Kate, who both stayed home). Afterwards, Swift broke the internet with a selfie featuring Will, George, Charlotte and her boyfriend Travis Kelce, with the hilarious caption, ‘Happy Bday M8! London shows are off to a splendid start.’ The novelty of the British accent clearly did not wear off for the star during her time living in London.

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift)

Notably, this is the first time Swift has posted an image of a significant other on Instagram since Calvin Harris way back when. But with the future British King front and centre, who could say no to the most iconic hard launch in history?

To really hammer their relationship home (in Swift’s ex-boyfriend’s home city, no less…), Kelce carried Swift onto stage last night (23 June) in a top hat and tails during the intro to ‘I Can Do with a Broken Heart’, taking the place of one backup dancer in a coterie preparing Taylor for the very meta song.

Mike & Zara Tindall

Continuing the royal theme, it wasn’t just Will and the kids dancing like nobody was watching in their box at the Eras Tour on 21 June: the birthday boy was joined by cousin Zara Tindall with her husband Mike and their two daughters Mia and Lena. Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi also attended, but on Saturday night instead.

Princess Olympia of Greece

It’s not just British royals who flocked to Wembley to see Swift: Princess Olympia of Greece was also in attendance, spotted belting ‘Blank Space’ with her pals.

Keir Starmer

A very important stop on the campaign trail: Keir Starmer attended The Eras Tour as it kicked off its Wembley leg on Friday, joined by his wife and daughter. ‘What I learned last night is my daughter knows every album, every song, and every word of every song, and she wasn’t alone among the teenage girls who were there,’ the Labour leader told Sky. ‘It was utterly brilliant.’

Krishnan Guru Murthy

This legendary broadcaster went viral last summer when he posted about his struggles snapping up Eras Tour tickets on X, desperate to please his daughter for her birthday. ‘My daughter is 18 today and my job is done – I got Taylor Swift tickets in the pre-sale,’ he wrote. ‘But – not without a tortured hour and half of the Ticketmaster website chucking me out when I got to the front of the queue for Wembley and having to start again later for Edinburgh.’

The lucky journalist got to attend the legendary show twice, then, as he wrote a series of posts on X sharing his experience at Wembley on Saturday 22 June. ‘Quite excited. Just saying,’ he wrote, with a snap of his ticket. He then posted a selfie with fellow broadcaster Emily Maitlis, who he will host election coverage with on 4 July.

Hugh Grant

He wasn’t pictured partying to ‘Shake It Off’, but Hugh Grant also attended the Eras Tour at Wembley Stadium, taking to X to thank Swift for the energetic night. ‘Dear @taylorswift13, You have an incredible show, an amazing and v hospitable team and excellent if gigantic boyfriend (#tequilashots.)’, Grant wrote. ‘Thanks so much from one ageing London boy, wife and thrilled 8 year old #halfgirlhalfbracelet.’

Tom Cruise

Another famous Friday attendee was Tom Cruise, who was spotted swapping friendship bracelets with fans as he was guided to the VIP zone.

Paul McCartney

From film legends to music legends, Paul McCartney also paid a visit to Wembley Stadium to see Taylor Swift perform her iconic show. Arriving at the stadium for the Sunday show (23 June), McCartney was guided through the arena to the VIP area, but stopped to snap pics, dance and swap friendship bracelets with fans as he passed by. The Beatle was joined by his fashion designer daughter Stella McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell.

Bon Jovi

Last night, legendary American singer Jon Bon Jovi arrived at Wembley for Swift’s final London show in June. It’s a shame he didn’t visit with Prince William on Friday, as the unlikely trio could have recreated their 2013 stage performance of ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’.
