Rock legend Jon Bon Jovi has dubbed the Duke of Sussex ‘the artist formerly known as Prince’.

Bon Jovi, 57, is to meet Harry, who is preparing to quit royal life and drop his HRH style in just a few weeks time, at Abbey Road Studios in London on Friday.

The musician is recording a single in aid of the Invictus Games Foundation, which was set up by Harry and supports an international multi-sport event for injured or sick military personnel.

Appearing on BBC Radio 2’s The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show, the star, whose parents were both in the US Marine Corps, told how he sent Harry the song after writing it for a documentary on soldiers with PTSD.

The title ‘the artist formerly known as Prince’ was used to refer to US music legend Prince after he changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol.
