Eagle-eyed Taylor Swift fans were quick to notice something they’ve seen before in Red, White & Royal Blue.
Swifties are loving the small moment that occurs in Red, White & Royal Blue that’s taking them all back to a specific music video.
In one of the scenes, Princess Beatrice (portrayed by Ellie Bamber) wears a blue gown with beaded detailing and it wasn’t long before Taylor Swift fans clocked where they’ve seen it before.
The ensemble is the same one Tay wore in her ‘Blank Space’ music video in 2014.

Ironically, Tay also wore it in a very regal setting.

Tay swans about in a huge country mansion in her music video, strutting through grand halls and immaculate gardens – scenery that wouldn’t look out of place in the new Prime Video movie starring Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine.
“The royal family are swifties confirmed,” one fan said on Twitter after viewers noticed the Easter egg.
“Did someone say ‘get me Taylor swift in blank space mv',” commented another.

Red, White & Royal Blue is based on the novel of the same name by Casey McQuiston, telling the story of Prince Henry and the son of the US President, Alex, whose connection develops from enemies to friends, to something much more.
While viewers will recognise Nicholas from films like Cinderella (2021) and Purple Hearts, they’ll know Taylor from The Kissing Booth 2 and 3 on Netflix.
