Oh the royals, they truly are so relatable at times. This week, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended yet another performance of Hamilton, this time to raise funds for the Duke of Sussex’s charity Sentebale, which benefits children affected by HIV and AIDS in Lethoso.

The couple stepped out in gloriously cool evening outfits for their gala date night with Markle in a black tuxedo dress and Harry in a tailored suit. As usual, the couple quietly displayed some PDA, even in moments least expected.

After the rousing show held in London’s West End, Harry first took to the stage to deliver a few lines of gratitude—and to sing for the audience. The night was a massive success and the couple ended their visit by taking a group photo with the cast, during which Markle teased her husband for his love of Hamilton.

A clip was posted by Hello! that showed the pair interacting with the group for the snapshot. At one point, Markle realizes that she was blocking her husband (who posed with one hand on her waist), so she shifted from one side and then the other. She then turns around and asks her husband of over 100 days, “Can you see, my love?”

The cast of course reacted to Markle’s cute gesture with a chorus of responses, which left the Duchess of Sussex to react by blushing. “Oh!” she replied as she put one hand over her chest.

The royals, of course, have bestowed their own nicknames on Markle, most notably Prince Charles’ sweet monicker for the former actress (“Tungsten”).
