Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took a night off from parenting this week, treating themselves to a romantic date night at an open-air music gig in sunny California.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted dancing and swaying in the audience of a Jack Johnson concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Wednesday evening, much to the excitement of their adoring fans.
The A-list couple enjoyed the US crooner's setlist from a VIP section, which they shared with a small group of other spectators.
It's understood that they arrived at the venue separately, with the Duchess showing up at 8pm and Harry joining an hour later. The sighting comes shortly after the release of the fourth episode of Archetypes, in which Meghan revealed her 'adolescent embarrassment' ahead of a discussion with Lisa Ling and Margaret Cho about Asian American stereotypes.
The Sussexes later posed for a photo with Paula Fuga, one of the supporting acts at the Jack Johnson concert.
The Hawaiian singer-songwriter shared the exciting moment on her Instagram Story, looking clearly delighted to meet her celebrity fans.
In the grainy snap, Meghan is rocking an all-blue outfit of flared trousers and a matching blouse, while her sleek hair is tied back in a high ponytail. Harry seemed to have also clocked the color memo, wearing a navy sweater and tan slacks for the laid-back event.
Archie, 3, and one-year-old Lilibet were not in attendance, having seemingly remained at the family's £14 million Santa Barbara home in Montecito while their parents enjoyed their night out.
The royal date night took place just a couple of weeks after Harry and Meghan's whirlwind trip to the UK, which ended up being extended due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Duke and Duchess were away from Archie and Lilibet for a fortnight – the longest amount of time they'd ever spent apart from their children. They reportedly spoke to the toddlers on FaceTime every day while they were away, but were understandably desperate to reunite with them face-to-face after the sad overseas trip.
