Princes William and Harry will be helping the DIY SOS team transform a street in north Manchester into a veterans' village.

The Royal brothers are set to join the BBC team tomorrow to help with the final stages of refurbishing homes in Newton Heath for former army servicemen and women.

The project, the largest ever to feature on the makeover series, launched last Monday and is due to be completed by the end of this week.

The princes are expected to meet ex-servicemen and women who are moving into the renovated homes.

Dressed in jeans and workmens' helmets, Princes William and Harry are preparing to show off their DIY skills today, helping to turn a derelict street into homes for ex-service personnel.

The brothers are throwing their weight behind the ambitious project, which will see an entire street in Newton Heath, Manchester, rejuvenated for Armed Forces veterans.

The pair joined presenter Nick Knowles and the BBC's DIY SOS team of builders, as well as hundreds of volunteers, in helping with the final stages of the build.

I think he looks fine with the beard... it's just a matter of getting used to it again... As it was when other royal men wore a beard!

Yeah, I think he looks fine, though I doubt he'll keep it. Good to see Harry and William publicising this help for ex-service personnel.
