Abstract: Prince Henry of Wales, familiarly known as Prince Harry, is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales. He is  currently the 5th in line of succession to the British throne. He spent ten years working in the Armed Forces, ending operational duties in 2015. Harry is voted to be the third-most popular member of the royal family, after William and the Queen in the United Kingdom.

In 2009, he co-founded The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry with his older brother Prince William. After the wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton in 2011, The Foundation underwent a name change and became The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

The Foundation’s three focuses, including:-

1) Armed Forces – Promoting the welfare of those who are serving or who have served their country in the Armed Forces

2) Young People – Helping children and young people to build their skills, confidence and aspirations.

3) Conservation – Supporting communities to protect and conserve their natural resources for future generations.

Harry launched the Invictus Games in 2014, and remains patron of its Foundation. He also gives patronage to several other organisations, including the HALO Trust, the London Marathon Charitable Trust, and Walking With The Wounded. Together with his great friend Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, he set up Sentebale to offer long-term support to community organisations working with children and young people, and in particular to those working with orphans.
