Unlikely Duet: Prince Harry And Jon Bon Jovi Join Forces On New Track

"Unbroken", a musical ode to military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), will raise funds for The Invictus Games Foundation and be released next month.

On Friday, Prince Harry visited London's famed Abbey Road Studios to meet Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir as they re-recorded the track, which was originally released late last year.

The song's lyrics, penned by the Bon Jovi frontman, 57, are a deep look at the complexities of a soldier's life after he returns home from war.

With lyrics like, "in a thousand year old fight / I got this painful ringing in my ear, From an IED last night / But no lead light humvee war machine, could save my sargeant's life".

The new single will be released in March, with all proceeds going to the Invictus Games Foundation.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, who returned to Britain this week from Canada for his final royal engagements -- joined the special live session at Studio 2 in Abbey Road, the home of The Beatles's greatest classics.

The recording features the Invictus Games Choir, made up of wounded, injured, and sick veterans and serving personnel of the UK Armed Forces.

The Duke and Jon Bon Jovi are both strong supporters of the military community, with Harry founding the Invictus Games in 2014 after spending 10 years serving in the British military.

The next Invictus Games -- to be held in May, in the Netherlands -- will be the last iteration the Duke will attend in his official role as a working royal.
