Rita Ora joins Prince Harry for glamorous charity concert

Rita Ora has joined Prince Harry at a concert to raise funds for a Commonwealth charity supporting children living with Aids.

The Duke of Sussex and the singer were pictured hugging at a reception ahead of the glamorous event, which was hosted by Sentebale.

Harry welcomed Rita with a hug  when they were introduced at Hampton Court Palace in London where entertainers from across the Commonwealth performed in the open-air.

Rita said after their meeting: ‘I’m so excited, a little bit of rain never really hurts anybody, I’m just happy to be here and to be able to support and try and raise as much awareness and money for such a great cause.’

Harry, 34, left his wife Meghan and their new son Archie at home to join the 3,000-strong crowd at the bash.

Sentebale was set up to support children and young people living with Aids in Malawi, Lesotho and Botswana.

Harry spoke at the start of the concert and joked with the audience, saying: ‘I am not going take up too much of your time, I realise you’re all here to see Rita Ora not me.’

After a group cheered loudly he quipped: ‘Especially you at the front.’

Harry thanked the crowds for raising funds for Sentebale by buying tickets to the concert.

He added: ”We’ve managed to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds from this evening and every single one of you has played a part in that.

‘You have the ability to have an enormous amount of fun while knowing that you’ve changed a lot of lives in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi at the same time.’
