Rumor has it, Prince Harry has been working on his DJing skills after an inspirational meeting with the widow of Reggae legend Bob Marley, Rita, on his first solo tour. And while most of the world won’t get to see his new skills as a DJ, Harry has done a musical cameo appearance in the official Diamond Jubilee single by Garry Barlow and Andrew Lloyd-Webber.
Barlow, by chance, was in Jamaica when Harry arrived there on his tour: “We turned up and I asked him would he play on the record and he said, ‘I don’t sing,’” Barlow told the U.K. Press Association.”But I said, ‘No, no – I don’t want you to sing, I want you to play the tambourine’. And so he said, ‘It’ll cost you.’ Then we met him later on that night and he did the tambourine hit and we spun it into the track. He probably hasn’t got a clue what he’s part of just yet.”
The song will be one of many compositions comprising a commemorative jubilee album by Gary Barlow & The Commonwealth Band; it will be released on Monday May 28th.
