PRINCE Harry will appear on The One Show tonight talking to the families of World War II survivors who suffered horrific burns in battle.
His debut comes after he joined a
video call last week to speak about The Guinea Pig Club and the CASEVAC Club, two organisations that offer support networks for those wounded in combat.
As the country paid tribute to those who fought in World War II last Friday for VE Day, Harry has been talking to relatives of World War Two survivors who were injured so badly that they subjected themselves to experimental surgery.
This comes after the dad-of-one praised young Brits for not just “surviving but also thriving” during the coronavirus pandemic.
His video clip was played at the OnSide Awards, as the 2019 ceremony streamed in full for the first time last night.
The video was posted on YouTube, with Harry saying: “Hats off to every single one of you for surviving but also for thriving.”
His message echoes the words spoken by Meghan Markle, 38, last year where she spoke of struggling in her new royal role.
Hats off to every single one of you for surviving but also for thriving.
She said on the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey: “I've said for a long time to H—that's what I call him—it's not enough to just survive something, right?"
Speaking on what should have been the start of the Invictus Games, Harry said that life had "changed dramatically" and urged his "Invictus family" to look out for each other after the games were postponed.
The competition, set up by Prince Harry in 2014, brings together current and former wounded, injured or sick veterans from more than 20 countries around the world.
In the video, Harry said:"As we commemorate VE Day this weekend and pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the entire Second World War generation, we should have also been gathering together in the Netherlands to kickstart the Invictus Games 2020 in The Hague.
Tonight The One Show will be on BBC Two at 7pm.
