“Wasn’t sure if I was supposed to like bow to them, curtsy, just be an American idiot and shake their hand,” he said.

Jason, 36, added that he and his brother "did get [a] warning" about how to greet the royal family.

“But they said that because we weren’t at like an official royal event, we didn’t need to bow or curtsy. If it would have been like an official meeting of royalty event, then it would have been that. But I did still address him as Your Royal Highness,” Jason said.

William danced the night away, especially when "Shake It Off" came on, but apparently, it was Charlotte's idea to attend the show as she adores the Grammy winner.

"Princess Charlotte is the huge Taylor Swift fan in the family," a source spilled. "She has wanted to go to the concert for months, but with her mum [Kate Middleton] being treated for cancer, this was a really special day to be able to celebrate her Papa's birthday like this."
