Harry was born on September 15, 1984 at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, England. He was baptized Henry Charles Albert David at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The second son of Charles, Prince of Wales and Princess Diana, Harry is currently sixth in the line of succession to the British throne.

Harry was only 12 years old when his mother died in a horrifying car accident. In the last few years, he has revealed publicly his struggles to come to terms with her death.

He joined the military after graduating from school and trained to become an Apache helicopter pilot. He served 10 years in the armed forces and became the first royal to serve in a war zone in more than 25 years.

In 2018, Harry married American actress Meghan Markle and a year later, they welcomed their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Earlier this year, the couple announced their decision to step away from their senior roles in the royal family.
