British royalty will meet pop royalty on Thursday evening as Prince Harry joins namesake Harry Styles at the world premiere of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.

The fifth in line to the throne will walk the red carpet alongside three army veterans who served in Dunkirk, Kosovo and Afghanistan respectively.

Ahead of the premiere, Harry will host a reception at Kensington Palace for Dunkirk veterans highlighting the lasting impacts of war on the mental health of service men and women.

Starring former One Direction member Styles, the film tells the story of the chaotic rescue of Allied soldiers during the Second World War.

Style’s co-stars in the film including Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Mark Rylance, will also be in attendance at the Odeon in Leicester Square, as well as director Nolan.

:: Dunkirk is released in the UK on July 21.
