Prince’s encounter with Taylor Swift
Prince William joked: “I can’t believe I’m actually telling you this story […]
‘When I sat down to watch Jon Bon Jovi do his performance, I thought, ‘That’s it. My job is done. I’ll get a dinner in a minute, and I might be able to have a chat to some people, and, you know, I’m off-duty a little bit now.”
However, Taylor had other plans.
He continued: “[Taylor Swift] was on my left – and after Jon does his first song, there’s a pause and she turns to me.
“She puts her hand on my arm, looks me in the eye and says, ‘Come on, William. Let’s go and sing.’
“To this day, I still do not know what came over me. Honestly, even now I’m cringing at what happened next, and I don’t understand why I gave in.
“But, frankly, if Taylor Swift looks you in the eye, touches your arm and says, ‘Come with me…’ I got up like a puppy and went, ‘Yeah, OK, that seems like a great idea. I’ll follow you.”
