Yesterday’s Commonwealth Day celebration at Westminster Abbey was a mostly formal affair, but that didn’t stop Prince Harry from getting his jam on.

The 34-year-old Duke of Sussex attended the Commonwealth Day services alongside his wife, Meghan Markle, and really got into the musical performances.

When Grammy-winning band Clean Bandit took the stage, Harry couldn’t help but bob his head along to the music with serious concentration. He was really feeling it when, suddenly, he realized his face was on TV screens throughout the Abbey. He smiled sheepishly and his pregnant 37-year-old wife turned to him to share a quick laugh. Sadly, the performance continued sans head bobbing. (What a shame.)

In addition to Prince Harry’s beloved Clean Bandit, various other musical groups from the Commonwealth (the group of 53 nations united under Queen Elizabeth II’s rule) also performed. Some musical acts included a didgeridoo number by an Australian aboriginal musician and North Indian dhol drumming.

Yesterday marked the 70th anniversary of the formation of the Commonwealth. This year’s theme was reportedly “A Connected Commonwealth,” which aimed to encourage countries in the group to protect their natural resources and environment. Overall, the day serves to celebrate the various cultures and values of Commonwealth countries and to recognize them as one big happy family.

Speaking of family, the Commonwealth celebration also marked the royal Fab Four’s latest appearance. Kate Middleton and Markle gave each other a hug and a kiss on the cheek at the beginning of the service. The 37-year-old Duchess of Cambridge opted for a red Catherine Walker coatdress and fascinator, while the Duchess of Sussex donned a white Victoria Beckham dress and coat. She topped the look with a white Jackie O–style pillbox hat. 

Head bobbing, didgeridoo performances and kisses on the cheek? What a day.
