Take Thats Gary Barlow shares rare fact about Prince Harry with Meghan Markle

Take That star Gary Barlow once shared a secret with Meghan Markle about her husband Prince Harry.

The pop legend let slip a little-known fact about the Duke of Sussex when the couple attended the Royal Variety Performance back in 2018.

Meghan was pregnant at the time with Archie and greeted performers, including Gary, as they arrived the London Palladium.

Take That was among the musical acts at the star-studded event, meaning both Meghan and Harry welcomed Gary and his bandmates Mark Owen and Howard Donald as they arrived.

As Prince Harry chatted to the trio about how long they’d been in the business, Gary turned to Meghan and informed her: "He's been on one of our records."

Meghan, who thought Gary was joking, smiled and touched her hair nervously before throwing her head back and laughing.

Gary insisted: "We're serious."

Prince Harry added: "In Jamaica, wasn't it?"

Actress Meghan's eyes reportedly widened in disbelief as Gary confirmed: "That's right. He really is on there."

She replied: "Oh my goodness, you learn something new every day."

Prince Harry's collaboration happened in 2012 when he featured on Sing, which was written by Gary and Andrew Lloyd Webber to mark the late Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.

Former X Factor judge Gary said: "He did the tambourine hit and we spun it into the track."

However, when previously asked if the Duke showed any musical talent, Gary quipped: "No".

Gary travelled to various Commonwealth countries to complete the track, and got Harry to contribute while he was visiting Jamaica.

The tracked featured 210 artists from across the Commonwealth, including the African Children's Choir, the Commonwealth Band and the Military Wives.

Take That will join Katy Perry, Lionel Ritchie and Olly Murs on stage at Windsor Castle for the Coronation Concert on Sunday (May 7).
