Prince Harry's charity Sentebale will host a music concert next month and some very special acts have been confirmed to perform. Coldplay will headline, while other acts include British singer Laura Mvula, the African-Norwegian singing duo Nico and Vinz, and George the Poet.

The concert will be held in the public gardens of Kensington Palace on Tuesday 28 June. Tickets, which start from £79, will go on sale at 9am on Friday 27 May.

All proceeds will go to Prince Harry's charity, which helps children and teenagers living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.

The money raised will specifically go towards Sentebale's monthly Saturday clubs, caregiver days and residential week-long camps at the newly opened Mamohato Children's Centre in Lesotho.

Harry set up the charity in 2006 with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho while on his gap year. The two royals launched Sentebale, which means "forget me not" in the local language Sesotho, in memory of their late mothers.

Last year Harry, 31, ventured to Lesotho to officially open the new Mamohato Children's Centre.

The purpose-built facility supports the charity's work with vulnerable children, and specifically hosts camps delivering psychosocial support to 1,500 HIV-positive young people each year.

Harry named one of the rooms in the facility after his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, and another after his late nanny Olga Powell, who cared for him and his brother Prince William for 15 years.

Harry also regularly takes part in the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, an annual tournament that raises money for his charity. Since its launch six years ago, the event has raised more than £3.5 million.
