Meghan could hardly believe some facts about Harry shared by musicians at the Royal Variety

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, learned some previously unheard of facts about her charming Prince while taking their rightful place at the Royal Variety Performance this week.

The Duke and Duchess represented the royal family at the annual star-studded charity event, Royal Variety Performance, held at the London Palladium on November 19. 

Attending the event were several well-known celebrities who waited in line to meet the couple, including Harry's longtime friends, pop group Take That.

On the bill for the evening's entertainment were singers Rick Astley, George Ezra, and the cast of "Hamilton," as well as comedian Lost Voice Guy, the winner of "Britain's Got Talent."

Take That singers Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, and Howard Donald were recorded chatting to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry who appeared impressed to hear that they have been in the entertainment business for 30 years.


Barlow then regaled Markle about Harry's personal dabble in the music industry and that one time he reportedly played with the band, telling her:

"He's been on one of our records"


Meghan appeared incredulous at this fun fact, seemingly not knowing whether to believe the band or to laugh off their bizarre suggestion. Harry then chipped in with his own assurance, to which she eventually responded:

"Oh my goodness, you learn something new every day."


It is unknown whether Harry really is on any Take That album, but he has played the tambourine on "Sing," a song composed by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow.

The song was performed by artists across the Commonwealth in commemoration of her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee.


During a very casual chat between them, the elegantly dressed pregnant Duchess told the band that she looked forward to seeing them closing the show.

The Prince and his bride of 6 months were also spotted talking to, and Harry even kissed, a puppet elephant named Peanut from "Circus 1903."


Members of the royal family attending the Royal Variety Performance is a tradition that dates back to the days of King George V and Queen Mary in 1912. The Queen is, in fact, a patron of the charity.

Another royal tradition Meghan will reportedly have to succumb to is being weighed before and after Christmas dinner, according to experts. This tradition was designed to ensure that guests of the Crown "have had their fill."

While some of these traditions appear dated, their rationale appears sound. Getting weighed on Christmas may just be a gift that keeps on giving as guests succumb to an extra helping of pudding.
