Prince Harry Sports a Fuller Beard and Green Flight Suit to Celebrate His 31st …

31 things you didn’t know about Prince Harry on his 31st birthday.

If you’re even the slightest bit a Prince Harry devotee, today is, uh, well the best way we’re coming up with to describe it is: a Prince Harry Christmas in September. Harry, still sporting the ginger beard he grew during his three-month conservation trip in Africa, warmly mingled with WWII veterans at an event to mark the historic Battle of Britain during a soggy day in England.A source close to the 25-year-old daughter of 1960s model Lady Mary Gaye Curzon, told The Sun: ‘She’s considering making another go at it with Harry. Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace tweeted a sweet throwback photo of a young Harry in the cockpit – a position he would continue to embrace into adulthood. He marked the occasion by officially representing the monarchy for the first time since returning from three months in Africa working on wildlife conservation projects.

She still holds Harry dear and always felt he was The One, even though she ended the relationship to focus on her acting career.’ The prince, who has previously spoken publicly about his want for a family, is believed to have recently met up with another old flame, Chelsy Davy, while he was out in Africa. —— But most important of all: Harry’s beard (which we first became of aware of via a Facebook photo posted earlier this summer by an African conservation organization) is not only still intact, it is more vital, more vibrant, more lush, than ever before.

Although mechanical problems prevented Harry from taking flight in one of the vintage Spitfire fighter – as he gleefully did last year – he was serenaded by school kids singing “Happy Birthday.” The display of more than 30 planes, which took place 70 miles south of London, was billed as the biggest flypast since the WWII battle that made history 75 years ago. Yes, the beard (at least for now) is here to stay. “Prince Harry” was trending in the U.S. on Twitter this morning thanks to the facial hair; the Daily Mail is likely in the process of hiring a Harry’s Beard correspondent; Prince George is no doubt searching for a P.R. consultant to figure out how to get his buzz back, in spite of this new challenger. Insiders detect the sure hand of the Kensington Palace PR supremo Jason Knauff, who has been on a mission to make the young royals less formal and more approachable, part of a master plan to ensure that the family continues to connect with citizens as the 21st century bounds onwards. It’s silly to even keep writing words in this post, given there are pictures of Harry’s beard here for you to look at, but: one potential threat to the beard is the Queen’s strict guidelines when it comes to matters of appearance and decorum. It is Knauff, attentive readers of the Royalist will recall, who was said to be behind the cakes sent out to loyal ‘superfans’ waiting outside the hospital for the birth of Princess Charlotte and he is also the prime mover in the palace’s attempts to bypass the traditional media via a massively increased social media presence in recent months.

We are all aware of his will-they-won’t-they relationships, his job, that one time he wore a swastika and that other time he went to Las Vagas and got his kit off. 1 When he started nursery school in London aged three, Prince Harry didn’t automatically get on well with the other children and was reportedly picked on by bullies. 2 His kind-heartedness started early. Former parachute regiment private Nathan Forster, who suffered severe damage to his left leg in an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2011, and Corporal Alan Robinson, an RAF technician who lost his leg in a motorcycle accident, have been taught to fly in the same way as a WWII pilot in a scholarship supported by Prince Harry’s Endeavour Fund. Knauff, an America, was also the signatory of the much-derided letter appealing directly to consumers not to support magazines that published pap pics of Prince George. Beard Watch will continue later this week, when Harry appears with William and Kate (the latter of whom is also working through a hair-related shift) at the opening of the Rugby World Cup.

The Spitfire Scholarship is inspired by heroic pilot Douglas Bader, who flew throughout WWII with 20 individual aerial victories despite losing both his legs in 1931. The young prince would also spend hours tending to the sheep on the country estate. 4 Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas are actually related, albeit very distantly. In fact, Harry’s grandmother has such an aversion to hairy-faced men that her staff are forbidden to sport them, and there was apparently much frostiness at Sandringham at Christmas 2013 when Harry declined to shave off the facial fuzz he grew on his polar walk.

Style-wise, one might well argue that Harry has missed the boat, as true hipsters are now shaving their beards off, but Harry has never really demonstrated an iota of interest in fashion. Harry recently admitted that the recent expansion of his brother’s family had made him more eager to have children of his own — as well as finding the right partner to have them with. As a British prince, he doesn’t have a fixed surname and so instead used the name of the area over which his father holds title, as a territorial suffix in place of a surname. 8 He’s a dab hand at the Fifa video game, which we know because he told the Press in an interview while out in Afghanistan, saying, “You can ask the guys, I thrash them at Fifa the whole time”.

James Middleton – Kate’s brother – has a massive (some would say out of control) homesteader’s beard which serves to point up explicitly that he is not part of the royal troupe. Not only because obviously there’s not a lot about himself he doesn’t know, but because neither he nor William take any pleasure in reading articles about themselves and try to avoid it if they can. 12 Aged 18, he spent his gap year in Australia and Lesotho. The new Labout leader Jeremy Corbyn’s beard is a visual reminder of his radical left wing policies and actively messages his contempt for what he and his allies see as the toadying, clean-shaven David Camerons of the world.

While in Australia, he spent time working, as his father had done, on a cattle station and participating in the Young England vs Young Australia Polo Test Match. 13 In 2007-2008 he served for 77 days in Helmand, Afghanistan. Harry has been a champion for wounded vets and the success of his 2014 games led to the creation of Invictus Games Foundation, which manages the selection the hosts for future games and oversees their execution. Harry looks good in it, that cannot be denied, and the picture will definitely make tomorrow’s front pages, but it’s hard to imagine the old guard at the Palace delighting in the fact that the first picture of Harry in many months is so totally lacking in royal dignity. Have a look this video made when he later returned to Lesotho. 18 On the 10th anniversary of his mother’s death, he gave a speech at the Thanksgiving Service in which he said: “What is far more important to us now is how she is remembered as she was: fun-loving, generous, down-to-earth, entirely genuine.” 20 When commenting on the Las Vegas naked picture scandal, Prince Harry said that “at the end of the day I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down,” but also that “I was in a private area and there should have been a certain amount of privacy that should have been expected.” Quite right, too. 22 There was an American TV show called I Wanna Marry Harry, in which 12 women were led to believe that they were competing for Prince Harry’s affections.

When he was a child, Princess Diana took William and Harry around homeless projects and Aids wards in the hope that it would give them an understanding of people’s emotions, insecurities and of people’s hopes and dreams. When Prince Harry presented the rings at his brother’s wedding, he carried them in the cuff of his tunic as his military uniform didn’t have any pockets. Following training at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant into the Blues and Royals of the Household Cavalry Regiment.

Harry has three medals to his name: an Operation Service Medal for Afghanistan, Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal and Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
