The Duke of Sussex joins Jon Bon Jovi at Abbey Road Studios
The Duke of Sussex arrived at the famous Abbey Road Studios, where Jon Bon Jovi recorded a charity single for the Royal Invictus Games Foundation.
Harry returned from Canada to the UK this week to begin a series of royal engagements that will likely be his last before he leaves royal duties on March 31.
After telling delegates attending a sustainable tourism conference on Wednesday to simply call him Harry, the royal was equally relaxed around the rocker who had a string of hits with his band Bon Jovi in the 1980s.
The prince and popstar were ushered inside the control room overlooking Studio 2 – where the Beatles recorded in the 1960s.
Engineer Obie O’Brien, Jon’s longtime friend and producer, was waiting to talk to the Prince about the process of re-recording the Bon Jovi 2019 single Unbroken with the Invictus Games Choir.
The single comes to the aid of the Invictus Games Foundation which oversees the development of the Invictus Games, the international multisport event for wounded and sick soldiers founded by Harry.
Unbroken was created by Jon Bon Jovi to spotlight and honor Veterans Living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The musician has a close affinity with the military as both of his parents served in the US Marine Corps.
Crowds outside Buckingham Palace were treated to a mix of Bon Jovi songs during the changing of the guard ceremony.
Harry and the rockstar had a private reunion and while they were in the studios they recorded a video which was later posted on Harry’s official Instagram account.
The couple were seen in a recording booth with headphones on and Bon Jovi had a guitar. Just before they sang into a microphone, the streak ended.
The Duke then joked with an engineer, “We have gargled next door, so we’re good to go.”
