Prince Harry might be partial to playing polo and sneaking free samosas out of Meghan Markle’s events, but little did we know he’s also a Shaggy fan.
The 51-year-old reggae musician recently opened up about an encounter he had with the Duke of Sussex, when the royal visited Jamaica in 2012.
‘When Prince Harry came to Jamaica he came to visit the Bustamante Hospital for Children,’ Shaggy told The Observer.
The hitmaker continued, explaining that his daughter thought the prince was supposed to ride on ‘a horse, like in her storybook’.
When Shaggy told Prince Harry about his daughter’s ideas, it sounds like the father-of-one did what anyone would’ve done in this situation.
‘[Harry] turned to me and said, “Wow, she’s just so not impressed”, and then he sang, “It Wasn’t Me”. So, Prince Harry is a Shaggy fan!’ the musician added, referring to his hit 2010 song
Shaggy continued, revealing that he’d like to think that the Queen is also a fan of his music.
‘I played at her 92nd birthday party at the Royal Albert Hall,’ he said, adding: ‘Afterward, I was standing right beside her. It would have been crazy if she was like, “Hello, Mr. Boombastic.”’
Can you just imagine?
This isn’t the first time Harry has shown off his love of music.
In February, he headed to London’s Abbey Road Studios to record a charity version of Bon Jovi’s 2019 song ‘Unbroken’ with John Bon Jovi ahead of the Invictus Games.
In August 2018, the royal even sang a line from the musical Hamilton’s song ‘You’ll Be Back’ in front of a London audience who applauded his musical endeavour.
‘You say…’ he sang on stage to applause, with Hamilton’s creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda banging his feet in admiration.
