John Legend has five years of marital bliss under his belt, which makes him the perfect person to offer advice on married life. Luckily for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle—the latest celebrity newlyweds—the "All of Me" singer is sharing a few tips specifically for them. And while they were directed towards the royal couple, they're particularly salient for just about any recently-married couple.

 

When asked if he had any guidance for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the musician cited communication as the key factor of a happy union. "I think you just have to listen to each other, love each other, take care of each other, communicate well," he told Billboard at Sunday's 2018 Billboard Awards. "And then hopefully they can go off and make some babies, too. That'll be great."

This isn't the first time Legend has publicly addressed the couple. Following the confusion surrounding Meghan's father's royal wedding attendance, he supported the royal bride by sharing a similar anecdote from his own past on Twitter. His reason for commenting came from a place of comradery. "She's in the most high-profile situation in the world," he said. "We all have family we have to deal with and she had to deal with it in the public arena in a way that most of us would never have to, so kudos to her."

 

He also complimented the Duchess for her constant poise, even in the face of adversity. "I think she handled it with so much grace and her family, her mother did too," Legend continued. "I'm happy for her, happy for Harry, and wish them all the best."
