Prince Harry Sings with the Cast at a Performance of 'Hamilton'

People.com

If you needed another reason to love Prince Harry, we’ve got one for you: he has a great sense of humor. The royal attended a special performance of the hit show Hamilton with his new bride Megan. The night was a benefit for a charity that Harry started to help children affected by HIV in Africa, and raised $400,000 for the cause. The evening concluded with the happy couple joining the cast on stage — along with the show’s creator and original star, Lin Manuel-Miranda.

If you haven’t yet had the chance to see the musical, it takes place during the founding of our country and revolves around Alexander Hamilton. Also featured in the show is King George III of England. Having Prince Harry see the show was somewhat significant since King George was the young man’s great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather.

When Harry took to the stage, he began his speech by surprising the cast and audience with the beginning of the song “You’ll Be Back,” which is one of King George’s songs. The crowd went wild. It turns out that Harry was put up to it by Manuel-Miranda himself — although he was hoping he would perform a little bit more of the song than just the first line.
