Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance in a poetry group's video call over the weekend in honor of Black History Month.
- The Duke and Duchess of Sussex surprised members of the Get Lit poetry group last weekend when they made a surprise appearance in honor of Black History Month.
- Duchess Meghan even revealed her own "favorite poetry lines" to the group.
- In other Royal News, the reason why Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s speech is reportedly ‘less formal’ at solo engagements is revealed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who moved to the US last year, surprised the Get Lit poetry group when they joined their video call over the weekend. Established to help inspire young poets and improve literary education for young people in communities across America, Get Lit shared a photo of the Sussexes' appearance on Instagram.
Their caption read: ‘We’ve saved the best for last! Guess who surprised our poetry class this weekend?! It was the best weekend EVER! Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were magic and kind and interested in poetry!’
It was also revealed that Duchess Meghan even shared some of her ‘favorite poetry lines’ with the group.
The Get List post also shared the hugely important reason for the couple's appearance, writing: ‘We are so grateful for their visit in honor of Black History Month. It goes down as most epic experience in Get Lit history!!!’

The significance of their appearance was expanded upon further on Instagram by Mason Granger, Manager of Public Outreach at Get Lit. In his own heartfelt post, he described the experience as ‘pretty surreal’.
Writing about his favorite part in the caption, Mason revealed it 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.’
‘10/10 would recommend The Duke and Duchess of Sussex for your next Zoom poetry practice’ the caption ended.

Whilst this is the couple’s first appearance together this year, they have been taking on more and more projects since moving to the United States last year after stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family.
They even launched their very own podcast last year, Archewell Audio, which soon shot up the Spotify charts.
We can’t wait to listen to the next episode!
