Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a special date night over the weekend, keeping their promise to see a new musical in London.

The royal parents-to-be, who are expecting their first child in April, headed across town to see Tina — The Tina Turner Musical on Saturday night.

They were fulfilling a promise they made in November when they attended the Royal Variety Performance at The London Palladium, where they met some of the show’s performers and said they would like to come see the musical.

Meghan and Harry’s evening outing was revealed by the show’s social media.

“We were thrilled and honoured to welcome The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to the show last night,” the musical’s official Twitter accounted tweeted.

The show’s lead, Adrienne Warren, added her excitement about having the royal couple in the audience.

“They said they’d come and they did! Thank you to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. It was an honour to have the opportunity to perform for you again!” Adrienne Warren, who plays Tina Turner in the musical, tweeted.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the show adds, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a private visit to Tina-The Tina Turner Musical on Saturday evening at the Aldwych Theatre.”

The couple, whose Kensington Palace home is about three miles from London’s Aldwych Theatre, have enjoyed several theater outings throughout their relationships, including a few visits to see the London version of Hamilton.

Former actress Meghan, 37, is paton of the National Theatre in London, and she made her first public visit to the organization in January.

The Duchess of Sussex “is a strong believer in using the arts to bring people from different backgrounds and communities together, and this first official visit to The National Theatre will explore the work they do, as well as meeting some of the talented teams and apprentices working behind the scenes,” her office said in a statement.
