The Voice Kids finalist Donel Mangena appeared on UK's Lorraine on Friday, and revealed he met the royal couple while performing at Queen Elizabeth's 92nd birthday celebration at London's Royal Albert Hall.
The 16-year-old told the television host, 'I was expecting like a handshake, and Meghan Markle ran to me, gave me a hug. She screamed my name, like, ‘Donel!''
Mangena then recalled Harry saying, 'Our money's on you,' to which he replied, 'Thanks Harry, no pressure.'
In the Grand Final, Mangena finished as runner-up to 14-year-old Daniel Davies.
Mangena was lucky enough to be introduced by Harry himself at the celebration, who said: 'It now gives me great pleasure to introduce a star of the future, Donel Mangena.'
The 33-year-old royal also shared a smile and a friendly handshake with the singer before heading off the stage.
Mangena said on Lorraine, 'People went crazy over the handshake. Like straight after going off stage and getting ready to go home, I looked at my phone and see people messaging me and Twitter going, ‘The handshake!''
