Prince Harry meets Lady Gaga at charity concert

Prince Harry had the chance to mingle with pop royalty on Monday night, after being introduced to Lady Gaga at a charity concert. The Born This Way singer was performing at an event for WellChild, the organisation of which Harry is a patron.

The pair looked to be having a grand time together and were pictured chatting and sharing a joke at the evening event.

Lady Gaga, who shared the stage with Tony Bennett, toned down her usual wacky style for the royal encounter, opting to wear a shimmering sequin maxi dress. She however couldn't resist adding a quirky touch to her outfit, and donned diamante jewels above her eyebrows.

Harry, meanwhile, looked dapper in a dark blue suit and white shirt. The prince has been a patron of WellChild for eight years, and the concert held at the Royal Albert Hall will no doubt have been a night to remember.

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett were celebrating the launch of their new collaborative jazz album Cheek To Cheek, which features both solo performances and vocal duets.

"We wanted to make something that sounded perfect because of the quality of the emotion… the honesty," Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, has previously said. The duo took the stage by storm, belting out their hits and captivating the audience.

The event was held to support Harry's charity WellChild, which helps seriously ill children and their families in providing the best possible care – something that the fifth-in-line to the throne has previously praised.

"What they do is quite remarkable," Harry has written in a statement. "The love and commitment to those they look after shines through as strongly as ever."

He regularly attends the WellChild awards in September – a particularly touching evening where Harry has the chance to meet youngsters suffering with serious illnesses, who have shown unparalleled courage.
