Chart star Prince Harry hits No 1

Gary Barlow's musical celebration of the Diamond Jubilee - featuring Prince Harry on tambourine - has made it to the top of the UK albums chart on its debut.

The Take That star's album Sing, which was recorded at Abbey Road studios and features a cameo appearance by the royal, scored a first place position in its first week in the charts.

The album, which sees Barlow backed by the Commonwealth Band, was presented to the Queen herself to commemorate the celebration of her 60 years on the throne.

Barlow recruited Prince Harry, a keen music fan, to play on the track - although the royal refused to sing.

The track, also called Sing, was written by Barlow and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and features the chart-topping Military Wives.

All other top five albums in the chart this week were also newcomers, with Paloma Faith's Fall To Grace in at 2 and Rumer's Boys Don't Cry charting in third place. They were followed by Magic Hour by the Scissor Sisters and Anthems by Russell Watson.

It was also a week of big debuts in the singles chart, with drum and bass anthem Feel The Love beating Eurovision winner Loreen to the top of the singles chart.

In its first week in the charts, the track by London-based underground electronic act Rudimental and featuring vocals by singer John Newman managed to overcome Loreen's Euphoria despite her triumph at the song contest last weekend.

But the Swedish pop princess also managed to take advantage of her new-found international fame by scoring a third position during the single's second week in the charts.

Another newcomer which did well was pop outfit Lawson's debut single When She Was Mine, which climbed to number 4. Frontman Andy Brown reportedly wrote the number after finding out his ex-girlfriend had a new boyfriend.
