Prince Harry briefly treats audience to his singing at musical Hamilton

Prince Harry briefly treats audience to his singing at musical Hamilton

And if you, a red-blooded American patriot, still haven't even won the Hamilton lottery here in the states, well, now you get what that whole revolution business was about in the first place.

The excitement turned to awe when Harry belted out a quick rendition of You'll Be Back, a number performed by the character of his ancestor King George III.

But he cut the song after singing "You say.", telling the audience: "That's definitely not going to happen".

Harry and Meghan took their seats in the main auditorium to watch Hamilton rather than sitting in a box away from the audience.

Marking the occasion, the Duchess of Sussex went for a daring look, slipping into a mini tuxedo-style dress by Canadian label Judith and Charles.

While Harry color-coordinated his suit with Meghan's outfit as he wore a dapper black blazer, trousers with white shirt.

The couple had already attended another performance in February as duo, and this marked Markle's third time at the cult hit musical, which makes them the world's most famous musical theater supporters.

Ironically, the show pokes fun at one of Prince Harry's distant relatives, King George III, who is cast as a comical and out-of-touch character. "Ladies and gentlemen, the Duke of Sussex", the UK Press Association reported.

Meghan told actors the energy on the night was "palpable", adding: "It was so engaging, every moment of it".

The two - both dressed in black! - were the night's guests of honor, along with show creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Harry said: "That was absolutely incredible".

The show was held for a charity Prince Harry created, which aims to help children and young people affected by HIV/AIDS in the African countries Lesotho and Botswana.
