When Prince Hot Ginge told Duchess Meghan that they were going to the THI-TURR last night, she must’ve figured they were going to go see Chicago, because she looked like she was ten seconds away from swirling out a Bob Fosse jazz hand while singing, “… the name on everybody’s lips is gonna be MEY-GHAN!” (see: the Roxie Hart shit she wore to the theater in the video after the cut). But they went to see Hamilton instead. The performance was a gala to raise money for PHG’s charity Sentebale, which helps children and young people living with HIV in Lesotho and Botswana. At the end of the show, PHG got onstage to thank everyone and while up there, he crooned out bits of a Hamilton song into a mic. That mic is now pregnant with little ginger mic babies. Those ginger mic babies will be seventh in line to the throne.
Lin-Manuel Miranda and his wife Vanessa Nadal were also at the performance, and sat with PHG and Duchess Meghan. Below is a riveting video of them walking to their seats as audience members around them think, “Wait, are we at Chicago?” PHG and Meghan took the aisle seats, and if I was Lin-Manuel I’d be pissed about that. Because then I wouldn’t be able to smoothly slip out 5 minutes into the performance to watch episodes of House Hunters International on my phone in the lobby as everyone got into the show I’ve seen 5,932,984 times.

After the curtain call, PHG gave a little speech and also warbled out a couple of lyrics from You’ll Be Back, which is sung in the show by King George, his sixth great-grandfather. Meanwhile, PHG’s nephew and King George’s namesake Prince George was probably in his playroom bringing his nannies to their feet with his stirring rendition.
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

PHG’s singing voice sounds like a cross between “a walrus with laryngitis doing a Frank Sinatra impersonation” and “a walrus with laryngitis doing a John Wayne impersonation,” but my ears still smoked a cigarette after getting fucked with that verbal hotness.
According to People, Duchess Meghan told Rachel John, who plays Angelica Schuyler in the London production, that he’s been singing the songs ever since they saw the show months ago.
“We saw it back in January, February and thought it was incredible. Harry loved it, it was the first time he saw it, and now he can’t stop singing the songs!”
I say this daily, but GODDAMN that Duchess Meghan. Not only does she get to cuddle up to that scalding mound of ginger hotness every night, but she gets a private Hamilton concert from him regularly. And now I’m going to have the recurring wet dream of PHG singing songs from Hamilton during sex. And yes, the lyrics from a Hamilton song he’d sing with me would be “I will never be satisfied….”
