This weekend, the Prince of Wales celebrated his 42nd birthday by attending Taylor Swift's Eras Tour concert at Wembley Stadium in London—and he showed off his best dance moves in the process.

Prince William, who was joined by his children, Prince George (10) and Prince Charlotte (9), was seen in the stands grooving to Swift's popular hit song, "Shake It Off"—and one observant fan captured rare footage of the prince letting loose in his blue ensemble.

In the short clip, Prince William is having a blast while Princess Charlotte, who's standing on his left side, lifts her hands and dances along. One fan commented, "This is the greatest video of Prince William ever." Another wrote, "Prince William is the Swiftie we all needed. He is positively unhinged in the best of ways right here!"

This marked Swift's first Eras Tour stop in London, and she took time out to pose for a selfie with the royals and her partner, Travis Kelce, backstage. The 34-year-old singer posted the pic on Instagram and wrote, "Happy Bday M8! London shows are off to a splendid start." Meanwhile, Prince William shared a snap of the "Bad Blood" singer taking a selfie—and this was totally worth breaking royal protocol, because no one looks more thrilled than Charlotte.

A fan commented, "Charlotte looks star stuck and [like she's] fan girling. Omg, she’s so a Swifie, it’s too cute!!" Another fan said, "This is my favorite pop culture moment of the century."

Prince William's wife, Princess Catherine, was absent from the concert, likely to focus on her health following her cancer diagnosis. However, the royal did share a fun birthday tribute on Instagram, featuring a stunning candid photo of her husband and three kids jumping at a beach—courtesy of the princess herself. She wrote, "Happy birthday Papa, we all love you so much! Cx."

In addition, King Charles shared a throwback photo of baby William to celebrate his big day. In it, Charles is all smiles as he holds William on his lap. He wrote, “Wishing the Prince of Wales a very happy birthday!”

Hopefully, this won't be the last time I see the prince bust a move in public.
