You might think rock and royalty don't mix very well. But the younger occupants of Britain's Kensington Palace don't see it that way!

The British royals opened up Kensington Palace's East Lawn on Tuesday for a charity show featuring Coldplay — and Prince Harry even got up on stage to sing!

The show was a benefit for Harry's Sentebale charity (which he co-founded with Lesotho's Prince Seeiso), which helps young people with HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.

Prince Harry gave a speech before introducing Coldplay, and then returned for the show's finale, standing and singing with the band, Seeiso and the Basotho Youth Choir on Coldplay's "Up & Up."

"Thank you for standing out in the rain, thank you to the choir that has come all the way from Lesotho," Harry told the crowd according to The Evening Standard. "Please drive home safely and carry the work of Sentebale. And thank you to Coldplay — thank you so much, you've rocked the palace, you've rocked the palace!"

Of course, Prince Harry wasn't the only one to want to sing along with "Up & Up" on this tour; memorably Martin's children (with Gwyneth Paltrow) Apple and Moses joined him during the band's Glastonbury show to provide backup vocals on the tune on Sunday.

Clearly, it's catchy enough for kids and royalty alike!
