Prince Harry and Meghan Markle surprised a group of young poets when they joined a virtual class organised by the non-profit Get Lit–Words Ignite. The appearance drew comparisons to another moment when the Duchess of Sussex’s love of poetry made the Duke of Sussex emotonal. Meghan reportedly read a poem of her own on her royal wedding day in 2018.
A guest at her evening reception told : “She read her poem like the professional she is.
“Most of the room was misty-eyed by the final line.
“Harry was so proud and had to wipe away a tear.
“She spoke about their first date and falling in love at first sight.”

They added: “Meghan said she knew she had met her prince from the off.
“She spoke about how blessed and lucky she feels to have found such a profound love.”
Get Lit revealed that Meghan had given a little reading of her own on their call.
In a social media post they wrote: “The Duchess even shared some of her favourite poetry lines.”
One of Get Lit’s organisers, Mason Granger, posted to Instagram: “Soooo Prince Harry and Meghan dropped into my poetry class on Saturday and kicked it with the Get Lit Players for a multitude of minutes.
“My favorite part of it all was Meghan echoing so many sentiments we’ve talked about in class, about this particular moment in time/history to be a young person and the ripple effect of a single voice.
“The root of them deciding to come is because at some point in their lives, they were moved by a poem.
“And whoever wrote that poem at some point thought to themselves, “Does this even matter? Is anyone even listening?” And they shared it anyway.
“Fast forward ripple ripple ripple and these kids get a surprise 45 minute chat with the Prince Harry and Meghan. It was pretty surreal.”
