And we didn’t see it coming…
The royal family are a hit with the public, for the simple reason that they are relatable.
Gone are the days where we would only see a royal waving from Buckingham Palace balcony. Now they are accessible, all over social media, from Princess Eugenie dominating Instagram with her behind the scenes royal snaps to the Queen and Prince Philip’s Twitter account.
And it doesn’t stop there, with it emerging that they even share our TV habits.
On a Royal visit to Fowey, Cornwall, last week, Prince Charles revealed that he’a fan of UK cult show Poldark, and now it has emerged that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are super fans of one particular reality TV show.
There was hope that the show they habitually tune into was Love Island. But while we love the thought of the royals voting for Dani and Jack via the app and debating whether Laura and Paul will make it on the outside, it looks like it’s not meant to be.
Their reality show of choice? The Voice Kids.
Donel Mangena, a finalist on The Voice Kids opened up about the royals being mega fans whilst appearing on talk show Lorraine, explaining that he had met the newlyweds at the Queen’s 92nd birthday celebrations earlier this year.
‘Harry and Meghan walked in and I expected a handshake,’ the 16-year-old explained. ‘But Meghan screamed my name and ran over to give me a hug.’
Harry reportedly agreed, telling Donel, ‘Our money’s on you’.
Just when we thought we couldn't love Harry and Meghan any more than we did.
