Travis Kelce calls Prince William ‘the coolest’ – Music News

Travis Kelce has called Prince William “the coolest”.

During Wednesday’s episode of his New Heights podcast with his brother Jason Kelce, the American football star recalled meeting the British royal family at his girlfriend Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour show in London on June 21.

“We met royalty guys, there were royalty on the show,” Travis, 34, said. “I was lucky enough to get there early and meet Prince William. How about that? Your Royal Highness. He was the King’s coolest bastard.”

Jason, who stated on an earlier episode of the podcast that he was “out to honor kings,” agreed with his brother.

“He was great,” the 36-year-old said. “He was a good guy.”

Prince William, 42, attended the concert with two of his children, Prince George, 10, and Princess Charlotte, nine, whom he shares with his wife Catherine, Princess of Wales. The couple also share six-year-old Prince Louis.

“He was there with little George and Charlotte,” Travis continued. “It was an absolute pleasure meeting them. I wasn’t sure whether to bow down to them, take a bow, just be an American idiot and shake their hands, ‘Sup dude.’”

Jason then revealed that they had been briefed on how to greet the royal family.

“We did get a warning,” he said. “They said we didn’t have to bow or make any references because we weren’t at an official royal event. If it had been an official royal event, that would have been it. But I still addressed him as Your Royal Highness. I never felt emasculated, and I did. That was the closest I ever came.”

Travis added, “I’ve never seen you show someone so much respect: you put your beer ten feet away from you.”
