Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Offer Another Glimpse of Their Living Room Decor in Surprise Video Call

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are ringing in Black History Month in the best possible way.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex recently surprised a few students from Get Lit, a poetry organization that aims to increase literacy among children, by attending one of their virtual classes—and it's safe to say that these kids were not prepared.

On their official Instagram account, Get Lit shared a screenshot from the event and wrote, "We’ve saved the best for last! Guess who surprised our poetry class this weekend?! It was the best weekend EVER! Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, were magic and kind and interested in poetry! The Duchess even shared some of her favorite poetry lines. We are so grateful for their visit in honor of Black History Month. It goes down as most epic experience in Get Lit history!!!"

In the screenshot, Markle and Prince Harry are all smiles as they speak with the poetry students, and eagle-eyed fans will also recognize the familiar decor in their spacious living room, which includes a gorgeous fireplace and their “I Love You, California” poster.

On Instagram, Get Lit's Manager of Public Outreach, Mason Granger, also opened up about the royal couple's surprise visit. He shared the same photo and wrote, "Soooo Prince Harry and Meghan dropped into my poetry class on Saturday and kicked it with the Get Lit Players for a multitude of minutes. My favorite part of it all was Meghan echoing so many sentiments we’ve talked about in class, about this particular moment in time/history to be a young person and the ripple effect of a single voice. The root of them deciding to come is because at some point in their lives, they were moved by a poem."

According to their official website, Get Lit was founded in 2006 and inspired by a one-woman show about the power of books. After the event, Lane began to work with three high schools and taught poetry to several students. And since then, she and her team have partnered with more than 100 schools.

Meghan and Harry, if you're reading this, you are both welcome to crash any of our Zoom calls—although we can't promise we'll keep our cool.
