Rock royalty met actual royalty today as the Duke of Sussex joined Jon Bon Jovi at London's iconic Abbey Road Studios.

The US re-recording his song Unbroken with the Invictus Games Choir, as part of an initiative for the Invictus Games themselves — an international sporting event, created by Prince Harry, in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in a variety of sporting events.

The prince — who will step down as a working royal and relinquish his title as the Duke of Sussex at the end of March — posted a video of both men in a recording booth, and we must say that Harry looked pretty at ease behind the microphone. However, you will have to wait for the final recording as the video cuts off just before the two begin singing...

According to the BBC the well-known men greeted each other warmly on the steps of the world-famous London studio synonymous with the Beatles.

They were then ushered inside to the control room overlooking Studio 2 - where Fab Four recorded during the 1960s.

Before entering the studio, the duke was heard to joke that the pair had 'been gargling next door, so we're ready to go', according to the Press Association.

Bon Jovi said he had sent the song to Harry, who had sent a 'very nice letter' in return which said he would 'love to include it in something to do with the Invictus Games'.

Talking to the press ahead of the recording session, the American rocker said: 'In light of what has come, you know, with his leaving the monarchy, as it were, I didn't plan on any of this.

'But he said: 'Not only am I going to come back [to England], you know, but I want to be there when you do it'.

'And to do it at Abbey Road, of course where the Beatles once were; and to do it with the "artist formerly known as Prince", I think it's gonna be an incredible, moving moment.'

It's the collaboration no one saw coming but will now never forget.
