Meghan and Harry joined The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William yesterday to attend a special service at Westminster Abbey with the Queen to mark Commonwealth Day.
Jaspreet Kaur and One Direction’s Liam Payne took to the stage to cover John Mayer’s song, ‘Waiting On The World To Change’, but what was more interesting was some of the members of the royal family’s reaction to the performance. After Liam was done with the song and turned around to congratulate his guitar players, BBC managed to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry raising his eyebrows in response, and Meghan bending forward laughing.
The Sun interpreted the prince’s gesture and Markle’s giggles as a diss of the performance, as did the Mirror, which wrote that the couple “maybe didn’t enjoy the song as much as some of the other guests.”
The Independent said the two were “caught making fun of Liam Payne.”

Really enjoyed Meghan Markle bursting out laughing at the end of Liam Payne singing at the #CommonwealthDay service.

We can’t help but wonder whether Liam would get an invite to perform at the wedding..
