The one time mischievous Harry is the youngest child of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles of Wales. Harry still talks about how much his mum means to him.

Harry has his wings. He spent ten years in the British Armed Forces as an Apache helicopter pilot. He did two tours of duty in Afghanistan.

Harry even received a service medal for his time in Afghanistan and rose to the rank of captain.

Harry's fellow service members are close to his heart. The Prince created the Invictus Games - a sports competition for wounded service members. The games are how Harry first met Meghan Markle.

Harry supports a number charities around the world, from ones that work toward social change, to empowering women, to conservation.

Harry and Meghan designated seven organizations for donations to go to instead of gifts for their wedding:

Harry lives at Kensington Palace and will live with Meghan at Nottingham Cottage on the palace grounds.

He was the best man in his brother Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011.
