Find out what Taylor was surprised to learn about the prince, then watch their incredible surprise performance with Bon Jovi!
Taylor Swift has always lived her life like a fairytale, and now, she finally has a prince to complete the story! She had the royal pleasure of meeting Prince William on Nov. 26 at London’s Kensington Palace during the Winter Whites Gala, a fundraiser to benefit homeless youth, which was a cause near and dear to William’s late mother Princess Diana. Of course, the evening wasn’t all business; Taylor and William also performed on stage with Bon Jovi — and their video is a must-see!
In true T-Swift fashion, the Red singer served up her best “lame” dance moves — which she recently told HollywoodLife.com she “loves” to bust out at awards shows — while William really let his princely hair down and cut loose. Once we saw William adjusting his bowtie, we knew we were in for a jolly good show.

Also in typical Taylor fashion, she was totally humble and excited to be in the presence of so many huge names. Here’s what she said to the fundraiser attendees, per the UK’s Daily Mail:
I’m Taylor, it is very nice to meet you, especially under these circumstances. It is my first time playing at Kensington Palace or any other palace for that matter. … I have to thank you, Prince William, for having me. It’s amazing. To call attention to this age group especially, teens and young adults.
As for her thoughts on Prince William, Taylor was reportedly relieved to discover he has a great sense of humor.
“He was very funny,” Taylor told reporters. “I was really happy he was funny.”
