The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are done with Day 11 of their royal tour — and it was a doozy. From a rammed morning of engagements in Tonga to then packing up and heading back to Sydney to an awards dinner before doing it all again tomorrow — we’re exhausted just thinking about it. But before Meghan and Harry bid farewell to the awesome people of Tonga, they visited Tupou College where they received quite the serenade.
When you think “serenade,” particularly when it’s to British Royals, it’s easy to assume it’s going to be a sweet, solemn little number. Nope! The group of Tongan boys sang about mosquitoes and their performance was less sombre routine and more comedy show. And Meghan loved every second of it.
While Harry tours the Forest, the boys of Tonga College sing a song about… mosquitos. Duchess Meghan smiling and clapping.

Complete with buzzing noises and flying actions, the song was meant to frighten off any of the little buggers that might be hanging around the island. Tonga is one of the countries that pregnant women like Meghan are advised against travelling to, thanks to the risk of the Zika virus. If anything, however, it made Megs forget all about any worries she may have had as she was in stitches at their epic performance.
Literally, fits of laughter.
She went into her ugly laugh-cry.
Not that Megs could ever be ugly but you know what we mean. Where you’re trying to keep your sh*t together and act all classy but the more you try, the harder it is.
Yup, that one. At least she had waterproof mascara on.
We’re used to seeing many of the royals in humourless, stuffy states, all dignified and no-nonsense. This is yet another reason to love Meghan. Just when we thought it wasn’t possible to love her more …
