Prince Harry news: Duke sang reggae to fan after hilarious meeting with star Shaggy | Royal | News

The singer, whose real name is Orville Richard Burrell, revealed some surprising history between himself and the Royal Family.

The meeting between the reggae star and the Prince happened in Jamaica, where Harry had travelled to visit Bustamante Hospital for Children.

Shaggy was also present, and the two appeared to bond instantly over his hit single ‘It Wasn’t Me’.

In an interview with the Guardian, Shaggy claimed the Duke of Sussex revealed himself to be a fan.

He said at one point Prince Harry turned to the singer and began belting out the song himself.

Shaggy said: “So Prince Harry is a Shaggy fan!”

The two also appeared to laugh over the fact that Prince Harry did not quite live up to the expectations of Shaggy’s daughter.

The musician said: “My daughter thought he was supposed to be a prince on a horse, like in her story book.

“He turned to me and said, ‘Wow, she’s just so not impressed.’”

Shaggy also admitted in the interview that he hoped the Queen would be a “big Shaggy fan”, and recalled the time he played live at her 92nd birthday party at the Royal Albert Hall.

During the visit, Prince Harry also visited the Usain Bolt Track at the University of the West Indies and a host of other ceremonial and cultural events.

The Duke’s run-in with Shaggy aside, Harry has had a close association with music in recent times.

According to The Sun, Prince Harry revealed himself to be a fan of dubstep – at least enough to recognise Skream, thought to be one of the genre’s main artists.

Another dubstep star, Artwork, told the Sun in 2010 the Duke was “well excited” when he met Skream during a charity event at Buckingham Palace that year.

Artwork said: “He put his hand out and said, ‘Hello Skream, nice one!’ Harry obviously knew who he was before he met him.”

The Duke, along with brother Prince William, is also said to be a fan of US rap giant Kanye West.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived at the Royal Albert Hall in March this year as part of the Mountbatten Festival of Music.

It was thought to be one of the last public engagements the Sussexes carried out before they stepped down from their senior royal roles at the end of that month.
