Meghan Markle Laughed So Hard She Cried During a Choir Performance Today

Meghan Markle has had her share of laughs during her first royal tour, but no moment has tickled her quite as much as a performance from a boys’ choir in Tonga.

On the 11th day of their highly publicized tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand, Markle and her husband Prince Harry visited Tonga’s Tupou College in Nuku’alofa, where a school choir treated them to a few tunes. Their serenade included a fully choreographed song about warding off mosquitos in a region that has been affected by Zika virus. Videos captured Markle enjoying the performance, but it seems Prince Harry may have said something that sent her over the edge—over the buzzing mosquito noises of the choir, Markle begins to laugh so hard she starts to cry.

Watch, below:

The couple visited Tupou College to dedicate two rainforest reserves to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, a conservation effort. According to reports from The Sun, Prince Harry eventually joined the’ choir for a rendition of “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and urged the audience to sing along with him.

He later ventured into the region’s Tuloa forest as part of the dedication, but Markle had to stay behind due to risk of Zika virus, which affects women who are pregnant. Markle recently revealed that she and Prince Harry are expecting their first child (and he’s already crossing his fingers for a girl).

The laughing fit was just one of the highlights of what’s already been a whirlwind tour that has seen Markle give empowering speeches on education and attend dinners with powerful dignitaries (even if she’s had to toast with water). Still, the trip included one scary situation, which happened earlier this week when Markle stopped in Suva, Fiji to speak with a group of local vendors at a market. However, her security detail escorted her out after just six minutes when the environment was deemed “unsafe.”

The Duchess remained cool and collected the whole time—but she just couldn’t hold it in when it came to songs about mosquitos.
