DJ hands Prince Harry business card asking to DJ his wedding to Meghan Markle

A radio presenter slipped Prince Harry his business card in an effort to secure a DJ set at his wedding to Meghan Markle.

Jevanni Letford, a DJ for Reprezent radio, handed the royal his card as the couple visited the studios in Brixton, south London.

Footage of the interaction shows Prince Harry taking the card from Mr Letford and putting it in his pocket.

“We’ll DJ at your wedding,” Mr Letford shouts after Harry, who turns and grins.

The DJ then posted the clip to Twitter, with the caption: “Just slipped Prince Harry the old business card in a bid to secure that #weddingdj gig.”

Speaking to the Independent, Mr Letford said: "I DJ and present on Reprezent Radio and offered Prince Harry my business card as he entered the station.

"He smiled and exchanged glances with Meghan before slipping the card into his pocket."

He added he would let the royal couple choose the song for their first dance, if they agreed to let him DJ.

"If I could choose a song on their behalf, it would be Luther Vandross & Beyonce - The Closer I Get To You," Mr Letford said.

"Aside from that, I am confident that my track selections would have everyone on their feet from the Obamas to the Queen herself."

The DJ’s video has been watched hundreds of thousands of times, prompting him to launch a petition.

“Whilst I await that call from @KensingtonRoyal and Prince Harry himself, I’ve created a little petition to help further my chances,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Thanks to everyone who has shared my video, 250,000 views and counting! Didn’t expect that!”

The petition is campaigning for Prince Harry and Ms Markle to give Mr Letford a 30-minute DJ set at the wedding, to “show and inspire young people to believe that anything is possible”.

The Reprezent radio station set up a work programme a decade ago to try to tackle knife crime.

The scheme provides hundreds of young people with media training and employment skills.

Prince Harry and Ms Markle are set to marry on 19 May at St George’s Chapel at Windsor castle.
