Prince to attend gala concert

Prince Harry will spend an evening in the company of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett when the stars perform a gala concert in aid of a charity supported by him.

Lady Gaga and Bennett will take to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall next Monday in aid of the children's charity WellChild with Harry among the audience.

The night of classic jazz standards will benefit the work of the charity and the music has proved popular with fans and critics alike with the duo's CD Cheek to Cheek winning a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

Harry is patron of WellChild, a UK-based charity dedicated to the needs of sick children and their families, whose children's nurses provide specialist medical care and direct support in the home for chronically ill youngsters.

He will meet the stars before they take to the stage, attend a short reception for supporters of WellChild, and then host the charity's nurses, and families who have benefited from their work, in the royal box to watch the performance.

Colin Dyer, W ellChild's chief executive, said: "WellChild is thrilled that Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are supporting WellChild through this concert. The proceeds will be a massive boost to our work to support seriously ill children and their families across the UK."
