Prince Harry Unexpectedly Broke Into Song While Out with Meghan Markle  — and We Almost Missed It!

The hills are alive with the sound of Prince Harry!

As Harry and Meghan Markle were leaving Canada House in London Monday, a group of young Canadians lined a staircase to see them off — and the prince couldn’t resist capitalizing on the moment.

As he waved goodbye, Harry sang a line from the Sound of Music song, “So Long, Farewell,” referencing the iconic moment when the von Trapp children performed from a staircase. The impromptu sing-along got a laugh out of the group, including Meghan, who looked at her husband and smiled.

Harry’s musical moment wasn’t a one-time thing. Last summer, Meghan revealed that Harry sings all the time at home.

As they attended a special West End performance of the smash musical Hamilton in August, Meghan said the prince sings all the tunes at home. In fact, before his speech at the event, Harry briefly sang “You’ll Be Back,” the song performed by King George, who is his sixth great-grandfather.

“You say…” Harry began before the crowd erupted with applause.

Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda even stomped his feet with excitement as seen in a clip posted by Kensington Palace.

Harry and Meghan are both big supporters of the arts. Meghan was recently named patron of the National Theatre, a role she took on from Queen Elizabeth.

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.


While Meghan is best known for her TV work, especially her role on the hit legal series Suits, she did her training in theater and is a double major in theater and international relations from Northwestern University.

Meghan recently caught up with her old musical theater buddy, Katharine McPhee, who is performing in Waitress on London’s West End. The two used to perform in musicals together when they were both teens growing up in Los Angeles.

McPhee told the Evening Standard, “She was lovely, and she remembered me – she remembered my sister more specifically because they were in the same class – and she said, ‘I’m just sitting around waiting for the baby to come.’ “
