King George—the British king who bops out crowd-favorite "You'll Be Back," in the Broadway super-hit Hamilton—is actually the sixth great-grandfather of Princes Harry and William.

That made it especially delightful when—after seeing a special West End fundraising performance of the show in London—Prince Harry took center stage and crooned just a couple words in a surprisingly good voice.


"You say..."

That's all the crowd needed to hear to know what was going on. Lin Manuel Miranda, the show's creator who joined the cast and crew on stage, stomped his feet with excitement as the performers laughed delightedly.


The performance was actually part of a fundraising effort by Prince Harry's charity Sentebale.

According to their website, "Sentebale supports the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people affected by HIV in Lesotho and Botswana. Our programmes of education and care provide the tools and knowledge this vulnerable generation need to live long, happy, healthy lives in future."

The British royal founded the charity in 2006 together with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho after Prince Harry spent a year in Lesotho in 2004. AIDS related and children's charities were an important part of his late mother's—Princess Diana's—life.

In his remarks, the Prince thanked the many donors for taking part:

"Ladies and gentlemen, thank you so much — thank you to Cameron Mackintosh productions, to the show's creators Thomas Kail and of course Lin-Manuel Miranda, the cast and crew."
"And as already mentioned, a round of applause for yourselves for taking part in this evening's activities because you have together, raised a huge amount of money to change the lives of thousands of children in Botswana."

Prince Harry continued:

"Through the work that we're going to be doing now– we will be able to stop the generational hand down of the stigma around HIV."


The Duke—and his now wife Duchess Meghan—saw the show earlier this year around Valentine's Day as special guests of Miranda.

Miranda himself couldn't get over Prince Harry's familial ties.

Watch him tell the story here:


The Twittersphere shared Miranda's delight over both the connection and the Duke of Sussex's joke.





There's only one other song that might have garnered a bigger reaction from the Hamilton audience:


Tickets to Hamilton are extremely hard to get. The Duchess of Sussex may have discovered the best way to get them though, at least in London. Just marry a Prince.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
