Jevanni posted the clip on his Twitter account, writing: "Just slipped Prince Harry the old business card in a bid to secure that #weddingdj gig @KensingtonRoyal @ReprezentRadio @meghanmarkle #triedit #godj – at Pop Brixton (sic)"

In the video, Meghan and Harry are seen walking along when the DJ slips Harry his card and then starts cheering when the flame-haired prince puts it in his coat pocket.

Following the success of the clip, Jevanni started a petition to try to make his dream of performing at the pair's wedding, which will take place on May 19, a reality.

He tweeted: "Whilst I await that call from @KensingtonRoyal and Prince Harry himself, I’ve created a little petition to help further my chances. Thanks to everyone who has shared my video, 250,000 views and counting! Didn’t expect that! (sic)"
