Newlyweds Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are headed to the West End. The royal couple is set to take in a London performance of Broadway’s hit musical Hamilton as the guests of honor. Kensington Palace announced Monday that the royal couple will be attending the gala performance of Hamilton at London’s Victoria Palace Theatre on August 29, alongside show creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Though the couple previously saw the show in February, they will be attending this particular Hamilton performance as it will help raise funds for Prince Harry’s charity Sentebale — for which he recently played a charity polo match. According to its website, the charity supports the mental health and well-being of children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana. Not to mention, the royals will have the privilege of seeing the show for a second time, and who doesn’t want to see Hamilton twice?
Markle, her husband, and Miranda will meet the cast and crew onstage and are expected to address the audience, according to a statement from Kensington Palace. “At the conclusion of the show both the Duke of Sussex and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the show’s book, music, and lyrics, will address the audience,” it reads.
Anyone interested in attending the event can purchase a ticket online for $25 to $130, plus a charity donation. Kensington Palace also announced via Twitter that Harry and Meghan will also be attending the Well Child Awards — an event in support of the national charity (of which Harry is a patron) for seriously ill children and their families — on September 4, as well as charity music gala 100 Days to Peace, on September 6.
Looks like married life is insanely busy for Meghan and Harry!
