Prince Harry may have shared his fake texts with Jon Bon Jovi, but the musician is opening up about his real friendship with the Duke of Sussex.
Bon Jovi stopped by The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky on Wednesday and discussed his upcoming musical collaboration with Harry, according to People.
If you didn’t know, it was revealed last week that Harry is teaming up with Bon Jovi at a recording session on Friday, February, 28, for a re-recording of his song “Unbroken” with the Invictus Games Choir. The release is in support of the Invictus Games Foundation of which the duke is the founder.
According to the 57-year-old singer, he had sent the song and its lyrics to Harry as “a great gift” to his foundation. “He said yes and stuck now to it, so we’re doing it,” Bon Jovi said in the interview.
The appointment is scheduled for tomorrow at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, where Harry is supposed to sit in on the recording session. Unfortunately for us, it doesn’t look like we’re going to be getting any vocals from the duke.
“I’m gonna hand him a tambourine and see what he’s got going,” Bon Jovi joked.
The Grammy winner also revealed his confusion with addressing Harry now that he’s no longer a senior member of the royal family. “I’ve been asking, ‘What do I do? How do I address him?’ And then I realized I’m gonna call him ‘The Artist Formerly Known as Prince.'”
So, The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, if you’re reading this, we can’t wait to hear what you do with that tambourine.
