Prince Harry will take part in a virtual comedy event on 18 November.

The 14th Annual Stand Up for Heroes event, will see him join the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, Ray Romano and Tiffany Haddish with Jon Stewart hosting.

According to People, the event was launched in 2007 by Bob and Lee Woodruff and New York Comedy Festival founders Caroline Hirsch and Andrew Fox to raise funds for, and in honour of, injured veterans and their families – something that's very close to Prince Harry's heart, having served in the army for 10 years. Harry also launched his own charitable organisation for injured soldiers in the form of the Invictus Games.

The Stand Up for Heroes event will be broadcast online and on ABC News, Vanity Fair reports.

The news comes shortly after the royal family paid tribute to soldiers on Remembrance Sunday in the UK. Prince Harry, who was unable to fly back amid the pandemic, visited the Los Angeles National Cemetery instead and laid flowers at the graves of two Commonwealth soldiers before placing a wreath down that read: "To all those who have served, are saving. Thank you."
