If you need another reason to swoon over Prince Harry, wait until you hear him sing.
On Wednesday (August 29) night, Prince Harry attended a gala performance of Hamilton in support of his charity, Sentebale, which supports the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people affected by HIV/AIDS in Lesotho and Botswana.
“The show talks a lot about legacy, and what we leave behind. And I want you to know that tonight, because you came to see a show we’ve raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to make a better life for people through the amazing work Sentebale does. That’s part of the true legacy that we get to pay forward.” Lin-Manuel Miranda addressing the audience after last night’s special gala performance of @hamiltonwestend in support of Sentebale. #HamiltonLDN @craig.sugden.photography
While thanking the audience, cast, and crew for supporting the charity, the Duke of Sussex impressed the crowd by singing the first line of “You’ll Be Back.”

On Twitter, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda noted the significance of Harry’s choice of song usually sung by King George III in the show.
“King George III’s great-great-great-great-great-great grandson The Duke of Sussex sang a few bars tonight.” he tweeted.

We’re going to need to hear a little more to see if Harry has what it takes to make it on Broadway.
