Meghan Markle declared that she would give up acting after becoming engaged to Prince Harry, but she’s still thrilled by the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd.
This weekend, the former star of legal drama Suits took her fiance to see hip-hop musical Hamilton, which tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.
A spokesman for the hit show at London’s Victoria Palace Theatre confirms the royal ‘private visit’, and a fellow audience member tells me: ‘They seemed to love it and were applauding enthusiastically.’
It was, however, too dark to record Harry’s reaction to the scene in which his ancestor, George III, is mocked mercilessly. The English king (played by Michael Jibson, pictured) is portrayed as a ‘puddingish, catty’ figure who stamps his foot on the floor cartoonishly, saying he is feeling blue at the loss of his colony.
