Watch Prince Harry sing a line by 'Hamilton' character King George III

By Jessica Pollack

Not only did Prince Harry treat a theatre full of excited revellers to a gala performance of the award-winning play Hamilton on Wednesday (Aug. 29), but he also treated them to his own rendition of one of the show's iconic lines! The charismatic duke, who put on the production to raise funds for his charity Sentebale, fittingly chose to perform a line by the play's royal funnyman: King George III.

"You say..." Harry sang as he kicked off his speech on stage at the end of the show, and the cast and audience went wild as creator Lin-Manuel Miranda stomped his foot. The line is one that opens each of the king's three musical interludes, and once the room had quieted down the royal pointed to Lin-Manuel and said with a mischievous smile, "He did try, but I said no."

The Duke of Sussex then praised the cast and crew before thanking all of the evening's attendees who helped him to reportedly raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Sentebale. "A round of applause for yourselves for taking part in this evening's activities because you have together raised a huge amount of money to change the lives of thousands of children in Botswana and Lesotho." The charity helps support children and families impacted by HIV and AIDS in the two African countries and was founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in honour of their late mothers.

Lin-Manuel also had the crowd in a fit of giggles as he made a short speech to introduce Harry. The celebrated talent explained that he wrote the play on his honeymoon and had the idea to throw King George into the mix for comedic effect. As Prince Harry laughed beside him, the playwright continued: "...smash cut to 2018 and I’m sitting next to his sixth great-grandson." The energetic crowd then erupted into cheers.

This was Meghan Markle's third time seeing the show, which she'd previously watched on the West End with Prince Harry and on Broadway with bestie Priyanka Chopra. According to The Sun's royal reporter, Emily Andrews, Meghan also told Lin-Manuel during intermission that she loved seeing how different the British audience reacted to the King George III character in contrast to American audiences. She also spilled to the cast that Prince Harry loves singing along to the soundtrack, which may explain his willingness to take a stab at the royal role!
