They have been married almost four months but it seems the honeymoon period isn’t over yet for Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, as the former actress revealed the very affectionate nickname she uses to address her husband.
The royal couple, who tied the knot at Windsor Castle on May 19, attended a special charity performance of ‘Hamilton’ at London’s Victoria Palace Theatre on Wednesday, in support of Harry’s charity Sentebale, which works with young people affected by HIV in southern Africa.
Shared on a fan account, the short clip shows the Duke and Duchess standing close to one another amidst the cast of the stage show before Meghan turns around to the 33-year-old prince and asks: “Can you see my love?”
The show’s cast were quick to react, showering the couple with “oohs” and “ahhs” after hearing Meghan refer to Harry as “my love”, before the bashful 37-year-old clasped her hands over her mouth in embarrassment and shouted “Oh!”
The sweet candid video delighted fans of the newlyweds, with many leaving gushing comments of support on the ‘Harry Meghan updates’ page. One such fan wrote: “The couple is just so cute together.” (sic)
One wrote: “This is absolutely precious.” While another said: “Harry and Meghan are really a lovely couple! I wish the best for them!”
The couple are known for being affectionate, previously garnering attention due to the fact that – like many young couples in the grips of love – they hold hands whenever they are out in public together, despite most members of the royal family opting not to.
The couple are getting ready to jet off on their first official intercontinental trip together, as they will head to Australia in October for the Invictus Games, which were founded by Harry in 2014.
Kensington Palace announce in June that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would travel to Sydney for games, as well as visiting Commonwealth countries New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
