Every Photo from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Summer Date Night at Hamilton
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out in London on Wednesday for a very public date night, attending a special West End performance of the smash musical Hamilton to raise funds for one of Harry's longtime charities, Sentebale, which helps raise funds for children affected by HIV and AIDS in Lesotho and Botswana.
They posed for a group photo on the stage with the cast and crew following the performance.
Prince Harry surprised the audience at a special West End performance of the smash musical Hamilton on Wednesday night when he launched — briefly — into one of the show's numbers.
Speaking with Rachel John, who plays Angelica Schuyler in the London version of the Broadway hit, Meghan said, "We saw it back in January, February and thought it was incredible."
Continued Meghan of her husband, "Harry loved it, it was the first time he saw it, and now he can't stop singing the songs!"
Harry greeted Jason Pennycooke, who plays the Marquis de Layfette, with a "Bonjour!"
"The first time round [I saw the show] I was laughing so much. Just fantastic," he told the actor.
Meghan and Harry privately met Sentebale supporters before taking their seats to watch the show — appropriately in the middle of the Victoria Palace Theatre's royal circle.
Ironically, the Tony winner for Best Musical pokes fun at Prince Harry’s ancestor, King George III.
Meghan held her poster in hand as she took her seat.
Ahead of the show, the newlyweds met with the show's creator and lyricist, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and his wife, Vanessa Nadal.
Meghan wore a black tuxedo mini dress by Judith & Charles which hit above the knee for the event. She paired the chic outfit with heels and had her hair swept into her signature style: a low bun.
Meanwhile, Harry went with a classic suit and tie combination.
As well as seeing the show, Harry, Meghan and Miranda met the cast and crew on the stage of London's Victoria Palace Theatre.
Prince Harry congratulated Miranda on bringing the hit musical to London and holding the event for Sentebale. "It means so much to us and it's going to be a fun night," the 33-year-old royal said.
Harry also admitted that his bride warned him about the hilariously villainous role of King George III in the show. "I didn't know what to expect," he shared. "She told me."
Miranda told reporters that it'll be "fun and surreal" to see the show with the royal. "You don’t get that every day," the Tony winner said. "You get heads of state, we've had some popular folks come see our show, but you don't often get a direct descendant of one of your main characters."
The newlyweds entered the theatre through a back door.
The outing marks the beginning of a busy back-to-work phase for the couple following summer break. On September 4, Meghan will join Harry for the annual awards night for his charity WellChild. The charity works on behalf of seriously ill children and their families and caretakers.
