Prince Harry and Bon Jovi record charity song together at Abbey Road

Recording the charity single comes as one of the prince's final royal duties

Prince Harry headed into Abbey Road Studios yesterday (February 28) to record a charity single with Jon Bon Jovi.

The recording of the single was one of the Prince’s final royal duties after he and wife Meghan Markle announced their recent plan to step back from service.

Harry and Bon Jovi recorded a cover of the latter’s 2019 track ‘Unbroken’ for Harry’s Invictus Games foundation, a global sports event for injured ex-servicemen.

Testing, testing?… • Recorded inside Abbey Road Studios, home to The Beatles and other music legends, The Duke of Sussex joins Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir for a special live session in aid of the Invictus Games Foundation. The song being played, called ‘Unbroken’, was created by Jon Bon Jovi to shine a spotlight on those veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI), to honour their service and acknowledge the strength of the Armed Forces community. The Duke and JBJ are both strong supporters of the military community, with The Duke founding the Invictus Games in 2014. The Invictus Games Choir, made up of wounded, injured and sick veterans and serving personnel from all services and different ranks of the UK Armed Forces, have come together to use the power of music to aid their recovery. Although The Duke was unable to sing, leaving the vocals to the professionals, the special single that was recorded in Studio 2 where The Beatles recorded 11 out of their 13 albums, and will be released in March in support of the @WeAreInvictusGames.
