It's no secret that the singer, 42, and Harry, 31, are longtime friends. The pair come from similar backgrounds, having served in the army together.

The Prince, who has regularly supported James at gigs in London and abroad, also asked the musician to perform at the 2014 Invictus Games closing ceremony in London.


James' most recent performance was on Sunday night at the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor. After singing, the chart-topper met the Queen and shook hands with her.

James' fans were quick to support him, as one follower replied to Laura: "That would be former Captain James Blunt of HM Armed Forces. Show some respect to the man."

Another commented: "Well played sir, well played."

James has been entertaining Twitter followers since he joined the social media site in 2009. His witty comebacks never fail to have fans in stitches, especially because he calls out his critics.

"To be honest, I don't even really like music," he also tweeted, scoring 12,000 likes for the post.
