He’s not only a great prince but a great man and today Prince Harry has been rewarded for all of his hard work in his service for his country and his Queen, who also happens to be his doting grandmother.
In a touching ceremony, proud Harry was made a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO), Buckingham Palace confirmed.
A personal award given by British monarchs for service to them, the honour was given privately at the palace earlier. The prince is to leave the Army shortly, after 10 years of service, reports the BBC.
In between his engagements as a prince and his military commitments, Prince Harry found time to be a support of many charities, including Help for Heroes and ABF the Soldiers’ Charity.
He also helped set up the charity Sentebale in Lesotho to help children affected by HIV and Aids.
It is believed that once the prince completes his service in the Army, he will travel to Africa to volunteer with a conservation project.
Now technically Sir Harry, after leaving the Army, the prince will do voluntary work with a conservation project in Africa and with disabled veterans in the UK.
Take a look at his insignia below:
