AceShowbiz - Prince Harry shows support and love for children who have lost a parent while serving in the British Armed Forces. The Duke of Sussex delivered a heartwarming message for them at the U.K.-based Scotty's Little Soldiers' annual Christmas party while donning a Spider-Man outfit.
For the charity, which is dedicated to supporting bereaved British Forces children and young people, the royal recorded a 50-second video that was played at the party. Through its "Heroes and Villains" theme, it called on heroes to save Christmas and defeat the villains who want to ruin the holiday.
"Christmas is a time when we miss our loved ones really, really badly, and that's okay," Harry said in the video. "But, at the same time, it can be possible to feel guilty for having fun without our parents."
The Duke continued, "But I'm here to assure you that our parents always want us to have fun, okay? So, don't feel guilty. You're allowed to have the best time ever, especially with the Scotty's Little Soldiers community." He added, "So, go out there, have the best time, and Merry Christmas," before taking off his Spider-Man mask.
Of the children's task to "defeat" the villains, the husband of Meghan Markle instructed the kids, "Use your teamwork, your brains and your brawn to make sure that you do exactly that. Find them, and don't let them ruin Christmas."
Harry's sweet message to the children arrived a month after he penned a heartfelt letter to the organization on the U.K. holiday Remembrance Day. Harry, who lost his mother Diana in a tragic car accident when he was only 12, wrote, "We share a bond even without even meeting one another, because we share in having a lost parent. I know first-hand the pain and grief that comes with loss and want you to know that you are not alone."
