The Duke of Sussex has teased an upcoming collaboration with music icon Jon Bon Jovi.

Taking to the @SussexRoyal Instagram account, Prince Harry shared a video of an imagined text conversation between him and Jon Bon Jovi giving followers the impression they’re getting a glimpse of the exchange from Harry’s phone.

“Hey Harry, how’s it going?” appears a text message from Bon Jovi at the beginning of the video.

“Hey! I’m good! Just livin’ on a prayer…” Harry replies, in reference to the rock star’s hit song.

“What’s up?”

Bon Jovi replies he’ll be in London on February 28th and has an idea related to the upcoming Invictus Games founded and championed by Harry, a Paralympics-style competition for service members and veterans set to be held in The Hague, The Netherlands later this year.

“Nice! Is it just you or the band?” Harry asks.

To which Bon Jovi responds: “Just me for now, but don’t worry – I’ve got some back up that I think will work…”

“Ha! Don’t expect me to sing…” Harry quips, “BUT I’ll give it a shot!”

While Sussex Royal adds a disclaimer that the text exchange isn’t real, it’s a fun way tease the upcoming collaboration, that’s for sure.

According to People, Prince Harry will team up with the American rock star at a recording session on February 28. Bon Jovi is planning to re-record his song Unbroken with the Invictus Games Choir which will be realised in support of the Invictus Games Foundation.

The upcoming Invictus Games will kick off in The Hague, The Netherlands in May, with Prince Harry travelling to the country last year just days after little Archie was born to launch the one-year countdown until the Games.

It was also at the Invictus Games in Toronto in 2017 that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance as a couple.

While Harry, Meghan and Archie have spent the last few weeks in Canada following the announcement they will be stepping back, the family-of-three is set to travel back to the UK at the end of this month to attend several engagements before they formally step back from April 1.

Earlier this week the date of their royal exit was confirmed as March 31, with the couple agreeing to a review of the agreement in 12 months.

During the next 12 months, the couple is planning to launch their new non-profit organisation.

According to a spokesperson for the couple, the new charitable organisation will follow similar themes to the work they have championed as working royals which includes “the Commonwealth, community, youth empowerment and mental health”.
