Prince Harry, Meghan join Lin-Manuel Miranda at 'Hamilton'

Meeting happens same day as six-week run opens in Minneapolis

August 30, 2018 - 4:47 am

LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry sang and joked with Lin-Manuel Miranda on the stage of "Hamilton," after he and his wife Meghan joined audiences for a gala charity performance of the smash-hit musical in London's West End.

The royal couple sat in the royal circle at Victoria Palace during the performance, and afterward they joined Miranda, the show's creator, on stage with the cast.

Harry briefly sang a line by the role of his sixth great-grandfather King George III, to loud cheers and applause from the cast and audience.

Miranda added it was "fun and surreal" to have Harry there because "you don't often get a direct descendent" of the characters to watch the show.

The royal couple hosted Wednesday's gala performance to raise money for Harry's charity Sentebale.
