The Prince and Princess of Wales's son, Prince George, has met a roster of famous faces over the last ten years, even from an early age.

Royal watchers were delighted as Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte posed for a snap with Taylor Swift after attending her Eras tour at Wembley Stadium last Friday.

George and Charlotte beamed from ear to ear as they met the US megastar backstage at the concert, which coincided with dad William's 42nd birthday.

But what other big names has George met? From footballers to world leaders, the young Prince has rubbed shoulders with some of the most high profile figures.
