Prince Harry walks out onstage and briefly sings at the Hamilton Sentebale Gala
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently attended a particularly special West End performance of the musical Hamilton, after which Harry delivered a speech.
The 33-year-old Prince surprised everyone by stepping on stage alongside the cast and crew and singing the first two words of "You'll Be Back," the song performed by his sixth great-grandfather, King George.
The audience erupted with applause while Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of Hamilton, stomped his feet with excitement as it can be seen in a short clip shared by Kensington Palace on Twitter.
“Ladies and gentleman, thank you so much — thank you to Cameron Mackintosh productions, to the show’s creators Thomas Kail and of course Lin-Manuel Miranda, the cast and crew.”

A VERY KIND PRINCE
The Royal also took the opportunity to thank everyone in attendance for showing up to the evening's activities and helping raise a great amount of money for Sentebale, his charity.
According to Harry, that money will be put to great use and will be able to 'change the lives of thousands of children in Botswana,' as well as 'stop the generational hand down of the stigma around HIV.'

FOLLOWING IN HIS MOTHER'S FOOTSTEPS
It was definitely a very special night for Harry, who, much like his late mother, Princess Diana, and older brother, Prince William, is quite passionate about helping those who don't have to means to help themselves.
For the lovely evening, the Prince wore a traditional navy suit while Markle looked wonderful in a black tuxedo minidress designed by Judith & Charles, which she paired with black heels.
