British royalty, the second son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, known as Prince Harry. At the time of his birth, he was third in the line of succession to the throne after his father and his brother William.
In 2001, the then-16-year old was caught smoking pot and drinking, causing his father, Prince Charles, to take him for a Scared-Straight session.
The younger son of Prince Charles graduated from high school in 2003 and took his "gap year" before joining the military, part of which he spent in Australia for three months, as a "jackaroo" or cowboy.
On 21 October 2004, at about 3:20 AM, Prince Harry got into a scuffle with a photographer as he was leaving a private London club. Reports say that Harry headed for his car but, just as he started to get into the back seat of the car, he changed his mind and went for a photographer. The photographer claimed that Harry smashed the camera into his face, cutting his lower lip. The royal bodyguard and club security tried to restrain Harry in the brawl. Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana, once differentiated Harry from his older brother by the label "the naughty one."
Harry entered The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in January 2005, eventually joining an army regiment. He was commissioned as a cornet (i.e. second lieutenant) into the Blues and Royals, serving temporarily with his brother, Prince William, and completed his training as a troop leader. In 2007–2008, he served for over ten weeks in Helmand, Afghanistan, but was pulled out after an Australian magazine revealed his presence there. He returned to Afghanistan for a 20-week deployment in 2012–2013 with the Army Air Corps. He left the army in June 2015.
He and his girlfriend of more than three years, Chelsy Davy, split in November 2007. She was the daughter of a Zimbabwe safari company and they had shared a love of the outdoors. In May 2012, Harry was introduced to Cressida Bonas, granddaughter of Edward Curzon, 6th Earl Howe, by his cousin Princess Eugenie. On 30 April 2014, it was reported that the couple had parted amicably.
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.
Since August 2016 Prince Harry has been in a relationship with American actress Meghan Markle. On 19 May 2018 in Windsor, England they exchanged wedding vows and rings beginning at 12.35pm and were declared husband and wife at 12.39pm before a worldwide audience estimated at around two billion people. Upon his marriage he was styled His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex.
On 15 October 2018, while the Duke and Duchess were touring Sydney, Australia, Kensington Palace announced that they were expecting their first child in the spring of 2019. In London, England at 5:26 AM on 6 May 2019, the Duchess gave birth to Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, born seventh in line to the throne.
