With his royal duties ending, Prince Harry decided to team up with rocker Jon Bon Jovi to record a single.
HuffPost reports the Duke of Sussex is tying up loose ends in style.
Before he and Meghan Markle officially retreat from their royal duties on March 31, shutting down their Buckingham Palace office and dropping those grand HRH titles, there are a few Ts left to be crossed — including Prince Harry’s meeting with a global rock star in the Beatles’ former recording studio.
And what better way to end a chapter than with a song? On Friday, Harry was shuttled to Abbey Road Studios in London, where he met with Jon Bon Jovi to record a special version of a very special song.
But the pair wasn’t alone. They were also joined by members of the Invictus Games Choir, a music group of 12 wounded, injured, or sick servicemen and women from the U.K. Armed Forces.
It was fitting that the song they recorded would be 2019’s “Unbroken,” which Bon Jovi wrote as a tribute to veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and, presumably, his parents, who both served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
The song was initially written for the documentary “To Be Of Service,” which focuses on how service dogs help veterans manage PTSD.

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.
