Odds are you definitely know who Prince Harry is. He is the youngest son of the Princess Diana and Prince Charles, little brother to Prince William, and the fifth in line to the throne of England. Although a part of the royal family, Harry has undoubtedly bought into the more celebrity side of the lifestyle, as he is known as a partier and a playboy, which was evident from those infamous Las Vegas photos. While he has grown up in the spotlight and has matured from his antics of the past, there are lots of things that are not known about the red-headed royal, Prince Harry.

8. Is Dedicated To Helping Others

Prince Harry’s dedication to putting in work to help others is not something he considers as just part of his job as a member of the royal family, but is something he is actually very passionate about. His mother Princess Diana would bring both William and Harry to homeless projects, orphanages and other aid organizations at a very young age in order to give them an “understanding of people’s emotions, insecurities and of people’s hopes and dreams.” On Worlds AIDS Day, Harry offered his own personal confession to promote #FeelNoShame and try to alleviate the stigma around AIDS.

Although many have accused Harry of only participating in staged and completely safe operations in the military, he made it very clear he was serious about serving like every other soldier. As a member of the Household Cavalry, Harry was supposed to deploy to Iraq, but the the military was forced to pull him out when the media figured out where he would be. He made it to Iraq without media knoweldge in 2007 and served 10 weeks before an Australian paper once again blew his cover, forcing him to leave again.
