When it was revealed that Prince Harry and his lovely wife Meghan Markle attended a London performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s smash hit musical Hamilton, and it went pretty awesomely. The special gala performance was put on by Sentebale, a charity founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso that gives hope to children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana.

While it’s not a full stanza from the song Hamilton character King George sings, we do get a bit of Harry singing the very beginning of ‘You’ll Be Back’, to the uproarious delight of the house.
Thank you to the cast and crew of @HamiltonWestEnd for a fantastic performance, raising awareness and funds for @Sentebale‘s work with children and young people affected by HIV #HamiltonLDN pic.twitter.com/M5hmjTfhEz

The photos of the royal couple pre-show are pretty great too, we can all agree that Lin-Manuel’s look of “where am I?!?” is entirely relatable.
