The Duke is set to join a host of celebrities for a Stand Up for Heroes event as a special guest, joining the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow and Ray Romano in taking part. The show will be presented by the New York Comedy Festival and is set to be shown online on November 18. The event has been described by the charity’s organisers as a night to “highlight inspiring moments, memorable surprises, and stories of resilience while recognising the men and women who have served in our nation’s military”.
It remains unclear whether Harry will perform himself, but during a WellChild charity dinner in 2014, the 36-year-old had the audience howling as he admitted he was surprised who he was seated with.
Ahead of the event, Harry posed for various pictures with a number of women, and was told that around 200 women were in attendance.
But after learning of who he was sitting next to, Harry took aim at the event’s organisers for not sitting him next to a woman.
He told the crowd: “Thank you all very much for coming this evening, I’m not entirely sure who made the seating plan as I’m sandwiched between two men.
“Which when I considered tonight it was meant to be 100 women and myself – it’s slightly strange.
“It’s great to see so many of you with us in this wonderful Harry Potter-esque setting – there won’t be any Quidditch.”
Omid Scobie, who co-authored the bombshell biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex entitled ‘Finding Freedom’, broke the news on Twitter.
He added: “Prince Harry will join an all-star lineup to honour veterans and their families on November 18. The Stand Up for Heroes comedy event, which airs on ABC, will see the Duke appear (virtually) alongside the likes of Jon Stewart and Tiffany Haddish.”

Speaking before Remembrance Sunday, Harry discussed how wearing his military uniform was “among the great honours there are in life”.
He added during the chat on Declassified: “The act of remembering, of remembrance, is a profound act of honour.
“It’s how we preserve the legacies of entire generations and show our gratitude for the sacrifices they made in order for us to be able to live the lives we live today.”
