Synopsis

Born in London, England, in 1984, Prince Harry is the second son of Charles, Prince of Wales and Princess Diana. He seems to have taken the place of his mother in the tabloids, shocking the public with his teenage escapades and shows of cultural insensitivity. He served in Afghanistan and was promoted to captain in 2011 after holding the rank of Lieutenant since 2008. He is involved in many charitable causes.

Family Life

As the second son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, Prince Harry is third in line to the English throne, behind his older brother William. He has grown up under intense media scrutiny, having his personal tragedies as well as his antics and gaffes as the subject of numerous news reports.

His mother once described Prince Harry as "very artistic and sporty." At an early age, he developed an interest in riding and hunting. While the family lived in Kensington Palace during the week, they often spent the weekends at Highgrove House, their family's estate in Gloucestershire. Their mother strove to give both her sons "as normal a life as possible" despite their privileged position in British society. To this end, Prince Harry attended Mrs. Mynors nursery school in London's Notting Hill neighborhood. Princess Diana also took Prince Harry and his brother to amusement parks, fast-food restaurants, and other places frequented by other children their age.

Growing Up Under the Spotlight

Photographers were on hand as his parents dropped Prince Harry off for his first day at school in September of 1987. According to Ingrid Seward's William & Harry, the young prince had a difficult time adjusting to school initially. Despite his parents' increasingly strained marriage, he became known for his happy-go-lucky disposition as a child. Prince Harry also developed an interest in all things military as he matured.

In 1989, Prince Harry enrolled at the Wetherby School, where his older brother William was already a student. He then followed his brother to the Ludgrove School, a boarding school in Berkshire, in 1992. Around this time, he was reportedly informed of his parents' impending separation, which was officially announced that December. The couple divorced in 1996.

After the separation, Prince Harry and Prince William spent their school holidays dividing their time between their parents. They spent time at Highgrove with their father, enjoying outdoor pursuits, as well as going on official trips and vacations abroad. With their mother, they engaged in a variety of activities from going on tropical holidays to visiting AIDS clinics and homeless shelters.

Mother's Tragic Death

Prince Harry remained at Balmoral for several days after his mother's death, mourning in seclusion with his family. He then traveled to London with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his brother, to prepare for Princess Diana's funeral. On September 6, Prince Harry walked past thousands of people who had gathered to say good-bye to the woman many had dubbed "the people's princess." He trailed behind his mother's coffin in the funeral procession along with his brother, father, and grandfather, Prince Phillip.

 

In response to the criticism, Prince Harry issued a statement, saying "I am very sorry if I caused any offence or embarrassment to anyone. It was a poor choice of costume and I apologize."

Military Career

A few months later, Prince Harry and his brother attended their father's wedding to Camilla Parker Bowles. "She's always been very close to me and William... She's not the wicked stepmother. She's a wonderful woman and she's made our father very, very happy which is the most important thing," Prince Harry told the press at the time.

In May of 2005, Prince Harry enrolled at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He underwent 44 weeks of training there and, in April 2006, joined the Household Cavalry as a Second Lieutenant. Later that year, Prince Harry and Prince Williamannounced their plans for a special concert to be held in 2007 to mark the tenth anniversary of their mother's passing.

On what would have been Princess Diana's 46th birthday, more than 60,000 people gathered at Wembley Stadium for the Concert for Diana. The event raised money for the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund and several other charities including Sentebale, which Prince Harry has established to help children and others affected by the AIDS crisis in Lesotho.

That same year, Prince Harry began training for possible war zone deployment. His status as a royal posed certain security challenges to the army, and there was much debate regarding whether he should be allowed to serve in a combat situation. In February of 2008, Prince Harry began his tour of duty in Afghanistan. He served for two months.

In early 2009, Prince Harry once again faced criticism for his insensitivity. Videos of him from 2006 surfaced and depicted him using a derogatory term for a fellow Pakistani soldier as well as another offensive remark. Prince Harry apologized for his comments, and the army ordered him to undergo sensitivity training.

Despite this latest incident, Prince Harry continues to pursue a career in the military. He started his training to become an Apache helicopter pilot in the Army Air Corps in 2009. After two and a half years, Prince Harry completed his program in February 2012. He then put these newfound skills to work in his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, which began that September. During his time there, Prince Harry will participate in combat missions.

Photo Scandal

In August 2012, Prince Harry became the subject of numerous news stories after nude photos of the royal had been leaked to the public. The images of the prince were taken during a private party in a hotel room in Las Vegas where the prince had been vacationing. He and his friends had reportedly been playing a game of strip billards.

The photos of the partying prince ran in Rupert Murdoch's The Sun, but most other papers in England declined to run them. While the story dominated the headlines for a short time, the scandal seems to have no lasting impact on his public image. One of his first public appearances after the scandal was at the WellChild Awards in London, where he received a warm welcome. Prince Harry serves a patron to WellChild, a charity dedicated to supporting sick children and their families. He even joked in his speech that he was "never shy in coming forward," according to BBC News.
