HRH Prince Harry

Prince Harry is the younger son of The Prince of Wales and the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Prince Henry Charles Albert David (always known as Prince Harry) was born on 15 September 1984 at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington. He was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in December 1984 in St George's Chapel, Windsor.

In 1998 both young Princes were with The Prince of Wales, for brief public appearances and a skiing holiday in Whistler, British Columbia. Like his brother, Prince Harry is a keen skier.

In 2003, Prince Harry spent the first part of his gap year in Australia, followed by a stay in Africa, where he worked in an orphanage in Lesotho, and retuned home in July 2004. His time in Lesotho led him to create Sentebale, a charity helping children and young people in Lesotho.

In May 2005 Prince Harry entered Royal Military Academy Sandhurst to begin his training as an officer in the Army. On 12 April 2006 Prince Harry was commissioned as an army officer. He has now joined the Household Cavalry, and is currently serving as an Armoured Reconnaissance Troop Leader. In February 2008, Prince Harry returned home from Afghanistan after completing more than two months active service.
