What Happened When Prince Harry Met Rihanna

Dec 01, 2016

Prince Harry and Rihanna were all smiles when they met each other this week.

The royals—one a British prince, the other a princess of pop music—met twice on Wednesday as Prince Harry visited Rihanna's native Barbados during a tour of the Caribbean. They first spoke at an afternoon event in Bridgetown, Barbados, and then sat next to each other on stage at a benefit concert that evening, the BBC reports.

"Hello, it's very nice to meet you," Prince Harry said, turning to Rihanna after he met the President of Guyana. Later, at the concert, the pair smiled frequently as they sat next to each other and talked during free moments.
