Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is the second son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, who died in 1997. The grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip is sixth in line to the British throne and married American actress Meghan Markle in 2018. Together, the couple welcomed their first child in May 2019: son Archie.
Prince Harry was born in London on September 15, 1984, the second son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. His full name is Prince Henry Charles Albert David. The prince attended Eton College in Berkshire, graduating in 2003. From an early age he was followed by the media, which reported extensively on his partying, wild antics and flirting.
Prince Harry has had an impressive career in the British military. After graduating from school, the British royal began officer training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 2005. In April 2016, after being sworn in, he became a member of the Blues and Royals Guard Cavalry Regiment. He was originally supposed to be deployed in Iraq with his regiment, but his superiors decided for security reasons that he and his comrades would be exposed to too great a risk. As of 2007, Prince Harry was stationed in southern Afghanistan. There he took part in front-line operations, but was withdrawn early due to security concerns in 2008 after his mission became public knowledge.
From 2009, the young prince trained as a helicopter pilot with the British Air Force. After he successfully completed the training, he was appointed honorary colonel in the army aviators. From 2011 he completed training with the attack helicopter “Apache” and was then promoted to captain. Since 2014, Prince Harry has taken on administrative tasks with the British Army in London and coordinated projects and ceremonies, among other things.
After more than ten years, the Brit finally retired from the army in 2015. He retained the position of Honorary Colonel and was appointed Captain General of the Royal Marines in 2017, succeeding his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh. A year later he was accepted into the ranks of staff officers of all three British services.
After leaving the army, Prince Harry has focused primarily on charitable causes, following in the footsteps of his mother, Lady Di. In April 2006, Harry established a charitable foundation for the benefit of HIV/AIDS orphans. Princess Diana had already campaigned for AIDS orphans, so Harry is continuing her commitment. In addition, Harry is Patron of the Invictus Games, which he also created. There, wounded soldiers compete in athletic competitions
against each other.
“All I want is to make my mum proud. That’s the only thing I’ve always wanted.”
“Life is about having fun. If not – wow, imagine a life without fun.”
Since his marriage to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry of Wales has been omnipresent in the media. Amazingly, the marriage didn’t come with a prenuptial agreement that would protect his €35 million Net Worth in the event of a divorce. Although Meghan Markle brought several million euros into the marriage, if there was a divorce, she would be entitled to half of the royal Net Worth. Part of Prince Harry’s Net Worth came from his mother’s inheritance. Lady Di left her two sons William and Harry 12.5 million euros each.
Prince Charles did not insist on a prenuptial agreement when he married Diana. After the divorce, he had to leave half of his wealth to her – most of it went to his two sons after their tragic accident.
