There’s no denying that news about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has heated up our summers. As summer draws to a close, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are ready to get back to their royal duties. After some traveling and catching up with friends, the newlyweds are back to their routine, starting with a special gala performance of the smash hit musical Hamilton.
Harry and Meghan shined as representatives for the royal family and for Sentebale, a charity Prince Harry helped found in 2006. Harry even sang a few lines of “You’ll Be Back,” one of the esteemed musical’s popular songs.
After the show, a few brief words exchanged between the duke and duchess had everyone swooning. While getting together with the cast for a group photo, Meghan stood in front of Harry. She briefly turned around to ask him if he could see and slipped up by calling him a sweet pet name.
