  • Shaggy is sharing new details about his meeting with Prince Harry in 2012.
  • "Prince Harry is a Shaggy fan!" he said, recalling the Duke of Sussex singing It Wasn't Me to him.
  • Shaggy said he'd also like to think the queen is a fan too. The reggae singer played at Her Majesy's 92nd birthday after all.

Prince Harry's not afraid to sing his heart out.

The Duke of Sussex famously sang a line of You'll Be Back when he attended a West End performance of Hamilton in 2018 and joined forces with Jon Bon Jovi earlier this year for a cover of Unbroken to promote the since cancelled Invictus Games.

But have you ever heard the prince sing Shaggy's It Wasn't Me?

The reggae singer recently told The Guardian of the time Harry visited Jamaica in 2012.

"My daughter thought he was supposed to be a prince on a horse, like in her storybook.

"He turned to me and said, 'Wow, she's just so not impressed,'" Shaggy said. "And then he sang It Wasn't Me.

"Prince Harry is a Shaggy fan!" he told the publication.

According to People, Harry was in Jamaica visiting the Bustamante Hospital for Children at the time.

Shaggy added in his interview that he once performed for Her Majesty, The Queen too.

"I played at her 92nd birthday party at the Royal Albert Hall," he said. "Afterward I was standing right beside her. It would have been crazy if she was like, 'Hello, Mr Boombastic.'"
