Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrive to watch special charity performance of Hamilton

The Duchess of Sussex looked stunning in a thigh-skimming tuxedo dress as she joined Prince Harry for a special charity performance of hit musical Hamilton tonight.

Meghan, 36, and Harry, 33, beamed as they spoke to guests inside the foyer of the Victoria Palace Theatre, London, ahead of the show.  

The special charity performance is being held to raise awareness and funds for  Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale, which works with children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.

It is the second time Meghan and Harry have watched the hip-hop musical, which tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States after having made an unofficial visit to see it in February.   

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, is believed to have also caught the show on Broadway with close friend and actress Priyanka Chopra before she moved to the US.   

Ironically, Hamilton pokes fun at the British monarchy, particularly King George III, who is cast as a comical and out-of-touch character.

Tonight’s event is designed to raise awareness and funds for Sentebale, the charity Harry set up with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to help children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.

Its name means ‘forget me not’ in the local Lesotho dialect and was chosen in memory of the princes’ late mothers.

Before the show, Harry and Meghan will meet representatives from Sentebale and Hamilton, including its cast and crew.

After the show the Duke will take to the stage with its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, to address the audience. 

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 37, have enjoyed a low-key summer, attending a friend’s wedding on August 4, the duchess’s birthday, and enjoying a ‘romantic’ few days in Italy with film star George Clooney and his lawyer wife Amal.

They have also visited Charles, Camilla and the Queen in Scotland.
