Love is in the air for Britain’s royal family. Wedding bells will be ringing soon for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and one magician is already banking on an invite to dazzle the newlyweds. Richard Jones, winner of Britain’s Got Talent from 2016, shared his hope to be a performer at the upcoming royal wedding during a recent television appearance. “I haven’t had the call yet, but I hope they will call,” he told TV host Christine Lampard.
It wouldn’t be the first time he’d impressed royalty. Jones also talked about when Prince William was a recent on-stage guest at one of his performances. Understandably, His Highness’ security was a little edgy about it.
“I had Prince William on-stage at one of my shows recently. When I invited him on-stage, I could start seeing a few fidgety people in the audience and then I brought out a sword as part of the trick,” Jones said. “I could definitely tell who the [security] people were because I’m sure they were getting ready to rugby tackle me.”
Jones must be a real romantic, because he’s also using Valentine’s Day to announce some special UK tour dates for his show, The Military Illusionist.
