  • fun faith fact! Chose to give a personal eulogy in lieu of a religious reading at the 10th Annual Memorial Service for his mother

His Royal Highness Prince Harry, born Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and the late Princess Diana, and fourth in line, after his father, older brother William, and nephew Prince George, to inherit the throne.

His eventful childhood was marked by his parents’ divorce in 1996, followed by the tragic loss of his mother in a car crash in France a year later. His teenage partying and drinking escapades and other questionable behavior as a young adult became tabloid fodder. More importantly, Prince Harry is recognized for both his distinguished service in the British Army, as well as his dedication and generous contributions to charity. He has served in Afghanistan twice, both on the front lines and as a pilot. Following in his mother’s philanthropic footsteps, he created a charity to benefit South African children orphaned by HIV. The concert Prince Harry and his brother organized to commemorate the 10th anniversary of their mother’s passing raised money for the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.
