Brief Introduction

Born on September 15, 1984, Prince Harry is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales and Diana, the late Princess of Wales.

He is officially entitled as "His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales".

In June 2015, The Queen made him the Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO).

In his military career, he has served as a Second Lieutenant in the Household Cavalry and later promoted to the rank of Lieutenant.

He has also worked as an Apache Pilot on his tour in Afghanistan. He left the army after the service of 10 years in June, 2015, but still works in an effort to support the wounded soldiers and women.

When Princess Diana died, Harry was only 12 years old and accompanied by his brother, father, grandfather and uncle Earl Spencer in walking behind the funeral cort├Ęge.

There is no escape and no lie that I actually regret for not talking about her. From the very first 28 years of my life, I have never tried and even thought to talk about it. There is no denial of the fact, whether you are a member of a royal family or soldier or any star. It really does not matter, everyone suffers and everyone can suffer.

We are humans and it is alright to suffer. But as long as one talks about the same, it is not at all a weakness. Weakness is much different. It means having a problem, but not observing it and not solving it in any manner.
