While the Duke shies away from continuing beyond the line "You say..." it was enough to bring down the house, and, probably, make more than a few founding fathers and royal ancestors spin in their graves.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton creator and star, pointed out the significance of Harry's choice of song.

Christine Allado, the other Filipina who is part of the London cast, also took to social media to express how thrilled she was to perform for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.

The royal couple hosted Wednesday's gala performance to raise money for Harry's charity Sentebale.

Harry and Meghan wore black-tie for the occasion.

Joining Harry on stage afterwards, Mr Miranda said: "Smash cut to 2018 I'm sitting next to his sixth-great grandson".

The Dutchess was wearing a tailored black tuxedo dress by Canadian designer Judith and Charlies, which retails for $560, which immediately made headlines with some British press labelling it "daring" and "thigh-high".

Ahead of the show, Miranda said it would be "fun and surreal" to see Harry and Meghan watch the extravagant, pompous king character during the biography of United States founding father Alexander Hamilton. The trio will meet the cast and crew on the stage of London's Victoria Palace Theatre and address the audience.

The couple had already attended another performance in February as duo, and this marked Markle's third time at the cult hit musical, which makes them the world's most famous musical theater supporters.

The event raised £300,000, which will be used to improve the lives of children affected by HIV in Africa.
