Liam Payne’s performance for Britain’s royal family at a Commonwealth Day event elicited a giggle from Prince Harry’s fiancee Meghan Markle.
The One Direction singer turned solo star covered John Mayer’s Waiting For The World To Change at the service celebrating the Commonwealth of Nations inside London’s Westminster Abbey on Monday.
He was politely watched by royals including Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, as well as Meghan and Harry.
As Liam finished the song, BBC TV cameras caught Harry raising his eyebrow and sharing a joke with his wife-to-be, who struggled to suppress a chuckle.
The 24-year-old, who was dressed in sombre fashion in a dark suit to meet Queen Elizabeth at the event, took to Twitter to express how honoured he was to be asked to sing.
Alongside a video of his performance he wrote, “Such an honour to be asked to perform at the #CommonwealthDay service in front of the @royalfamily! Hope you enjoyed my cover of @JohnMayer’s Waiting For The World To Change.”
Liam later tweeted a picture of the moment he met the Queen, who is the head of the Commonwealth, writing it was “an absolute pleasure” to be involved in the celebrations.
The Westminster Abbey service is the first public engagement the Queen has attended alongside Prince Harry’s actress fiancee, ahead of their wedding in Windsor, England on 19 May.
Commonwealth Day is held to encourage cooperation between citizens of the organisation’s 53 states, which are mostly former parts of the British Empire.
