Pregnant Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sneak into London theatre to enjoy secret date night

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who announced in October that their first child is due this spring, visited the West End to see the latest show, Tina: The Musical.

The loved-up pair were like any other couple as they headed down to the Aldwych theatre in Covent Garden, London, on Saturday.

And while they managed to avoid the paparazzi and adoring crowds, the royal attendance was confirmed by the musical's official Twitter account.

"We were thrilled and honoured to welcome The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to the show last night," the message read, alongside the hashtag 'Tina The Musical'.

According to the show's website, the musical tells the story of US singer Tina Turner, who defied 'the bounds of her age, gender and race' to pursue her singing career.

The Duchess, who is the patron of the National Theatre, met Tina cast members Adrienne Warren and Tom Godwin at the Royal Variety Performance in November of last year.

Meghan was awarded her dream role as the theatre patron by the Queen in January, who is thought to have said she was a "natural fit" for the position thanks to experience in acting.

The Duchess is said to have discussed the role when she met with the director of the National Theatre, Rufus Norris.

But Meghan is no newbie to the stage – a self-confessed theatre lover, she also enjoyed a visit to watch the Hamilton Musical at the Victoria Palace Theatre in December of last year.

And she even starred in musicals herself through her childhood – revealed in a throwback snap on Instagram by childhood friend Katharine McPhee.

"Meghan and I did musicals together as kids," she explains. "She grew up to be the Duchess of Sussex and I grew up to star on the West End, so same life if you ask me."

While the royal couple were enjoying their romantic date, Princess Diana's psychic Sally Morgan claimed the couple will have another two children after their expected first born.

The medium, who worked with Diana when Harry, 34, was only a baby, predicted the couple's family will grow over the next six years, seeing three children in total – a boy and two girls.

"The new baby will be happy, funny and highly intelligent," she said. "But it could be quite manipulative and will want to be cuddled in the night, which will mean sleepless nights."

She also predicted that the pair will protect the privacy of the child at all times, breaking with tradition by not presenting their newborn outside hospital after giving birth.
