Future dad Prince Harry broke into song while at Canada House

By Meaghan Wray

The Duke of Sussex is gearing up to become a first-time dad, and is proving he'll have more than a few talents to pass along when Duchess Meghan gives birth to their first child! While leaving Canada House on Commonwealth Day (March 11), the duke broke into a little rendition of a song from The Sound of Music.

With a wave and a flash of his winning smile – and to the laughs of those lucky enough to see him that day – the prince sang the first few lyrics of "So Long, Farewell" from the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical before leaving with his wife, the Duchess of Sussex. The sweet moment (a little insight into what kind of father Harry will be) was caught by ITV's Lizzie Robinson.

This moment of song was certainly not out of character for the 34-year-old, who is a known lover of musical theatre, as is Meghan. One of their favourite productions to see together is Hamilton. They've been spotted twice at stagings of the musical. Meghan even went with Priyanka Chopra in New York City before meeting her beau!

In August 2018, the couple attended Hannibal in support of the prince's charitable organization Sentebale, which supports the mental health and well-being of children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana. While taking to the stage to meet with the cast of the production, Harry showed off his pipes, singing the first bits of "You'll Be Back."

Harry and Meghan seem like they'll be naturals when it comes to parenting. They also share a love of dogs, and have similar senses of humour and a passion for the arts, so it's no wonder they fell head-over-heels for each other. And as the two prepare to welcome Baby Sussex around the end of April, it's certain Harry's down-to-earth nature is keeping any new-parent panic at bay.

In the meantime – when they're not busy with trips to Morocco or royal engagements with the Queen – the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are preparing to move into their family home of Frogmore Cottage. When the 37-year-old joined Harry at WE Day London on March 6, she told old friend Katharine McPhee she's just "sitting around waiting for the baby to come."
