Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, (Henry Charles Albert David; 15 September 1984) is a member of the British royal family. He is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales and is sixth in the line of succession to the British throne.
Harry was educated at Wetherby School, Ludgrove School, and Eton College. He spent parts of his gap year in Australia and Lesotho. He then underwent officer training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He was commissioned as a cornet (second lieutenant) into the Blues and Royals, serving temporarily with his brother Prince William, and he completed his training as a troop leader. In 2007–08, he served for over ten weeks in Helmand, Afghanistan, but was pulled out after an Australian magazine revealed his presence there. He returned to Afghanistan for a 20-week deployment in 2012–13 with the Army Air Corps. He left the army in June 2015.
Harry launched the Invictus Games in 2014 and remains patron of its foundation. He also gives patronage to several other organisations, including the HALO Trust, the London Marathon Charitable Trust, and Walking With The Wounded. On 19 May 2018, he married American actress Meghan Markle. Hours before the wedding, his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II made him Duke of Sussex. The couple's son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, was born on 6 May 2019. In January 2020, the couple announced their intention to step back as senior members of the royal family and split their time between the UK and North America.
According to an celebrity & entertainmet source of information these are some of worst things Prince Harry has done,
At the age of 34, Prince Harry has settled into married life with actress Meghan Markle and his role as the Duke of Sussex. With inspiring speeches to young activists, tackling climate change, and notable charity work, the youngest son of the late Princess Diana would make his mother proud.
However, during Prince Harry's younger days, many thought that would never actually happen. The guy was a wild man who couldn't stay out of the tabloids. Let's scroll through some of his greatest hits, shall we?
Harry's bad boy days started early when his father, Prince Charles, forced him to attend rehab for one day after discovering the then 16-year-old was regularly drinking and smoking weed in 2002. One day in rehab? That'll teach him. While attending Eton College (pictured below), former teachers reportedly helped Harry cheat because he was "such a weak student," The Guardian reported in 2005.
If actor Dominic West is to be believed, Harry told "eye-wateringly rude jokes" and drank champagne out of an Afghanistan veteran's prosthetic leg during a 2009 trip to the South Pole alongside the actor (via The Guardian). Then, in 2012, pictures of a fully nude and drunk Prince Harry in Las Vegas hit TMZ, much to the chagrin of the royal family. "I probably let myself down," Harry told reporters at the time, adding that the incident was a "classic example of me probably being too much army and not enough prince."
Then there was the time way back in 2004 when the young prince attacked a group of paparazzi? "Prince Harry was hit in the face by a camera as photographers crowded around him as he was getting into a car," a royal spokesman told The Guardian. "In pushing the camera away, it's understood that a photographer's lip was cut." Gotta love that royal spin.
We can definitely chalk all of these incidents and stories up to Prince Harry being young and dumb — after all, if given the chance, who wouldn't drink champagne out of a prosthetic leg in the South Pole? But there's one incident where the wild prince definitely seems to have taken things too far. Back in 2004, Harry wore a Nazi costume to a Halloween party, and, well, let's put it this way: people noticed.
According to The New York Times, Jewish groups called on Harry to visit the Auschwitz death camp, and even then-Prime Minister Tony Blair was forced to make a statement. "Clearly an error was made," Blair said. "That has been recognized by Harry, and I think it is better that this matter continues to be dealt with by (Buckingham) Palace." Translation: not my problem, go ask the Queen.
Eventually, Harry released an apology statement calling the costume a "poor choice" and stating that he was "very sorry if I caused any offense or embarrassment to anyone." Suffice it to say, Prince Hal has come a long way since then.
It's easy to take Prince Harry's side when he gets shaded for having a few too many drinks, because it's nice to see a royal acting so normal. What isn't normal, however, is wearing a swastika armband to a costume party, especially when you're a member of the British royal family. But that's what Prince Harry inexplicably did in 2005. Needless to say, many people were displeased. "Prince Harry has [apologized] for any offence or embarrassment he has caused," Clarence House released in a statement after The Sun splashed the shocking image across its front page (via BBC News). "He [realizes] it was a poor choice of costume."
For many, a simple statement informing the public that Prince Harry had apologized for his severe lack in judgement wasn't good enough. "Anybody who tries to pass it off as bad taste must be made aware that this can encourage others to think that perhaps that period was not as bad as we teach the young generation in the free world," Israeli foreign minister Silvan Shalom said (via The Telegraph). To make matters worse, this all took place in the run-up to Holocaust Memorial Day.
What on Earth was the ginger prince thinking?
