Superheroes always put a smile on the faces of little children. It’s the dream of many children to meet with at least one of their favorite mighty heroes, who put themselves at risk to save lives of the civilians. Well, Prince Harry decided to take things into his own hands and put a smile on kids’ faces.

Dressing up as one of the fan-favorite Avengers, Spider-Man, Prince Harry submitted a video message to a charity for its annual Christmas party, featuring a super-powered theme. The cherry on top is that the charity he recorded the video for is Scotty’s Little Soldiers – a charity that helps youngsters who had unfortunately lost a parent in the British Armed Forces.

At Scotty’s Little Soldiers’ Heroes and Villains-themed Christmas party, children were told to defeat villains that were trying to ruin the party. Children, who were the heroes of the party, had to use teamwork, brains, and brawn to stop the villains in their wicked quest. The children received a few words of motivation from none other than Prince Harry himself, who was dressed up as Spider-Man.

Sending the charity a video message, Prince Harry wished the children a Merry Christmas and inspired them to wake up their inner superhero and save the world, or just their Christmas party, from the evil intentions of the villains. The Duke of Sussex also shared a heart-to-heart with the kids saying that while it was understandable if they felt guilty having fun without their parents, their parents would have certainly wanted them to have a great time.


“Christmas is a time when we miss our loved ones really, really badly. And that’s okay. But, at the same time, it can be possible to feel guilty for having fun without our parents. 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. So go out there, have the best time, and Merry Christmas.”

This wasn’t the first time Prince Harry decided to play dress-up for the kids. Back in 2019, he sent another video message, however, at that time he was dressed up as good old Santa Claus.

Scotty’s Little Soldiers was set up by Nikki Scott in 2010 who had lost her husband, Corporal Lee Scott who passed away in Afghanistan. She met Prince Harry at the Party at the Palace in 2017. Fast forward a year, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle decided to choose the charity to benefit from their wedding.


Prince Harry seems to be quite involved with the children of the charity, as twelve-year-old Emily Reynolds stated that he wasn’t just trying to be sympathetic and that he knows what the children are going through, as he too knows what it’s like growing up without a parent. She added that her friends think it’s “really cool” she gets letters and messages from him. Another young boy, Ben O’Donnell stated that he thought it was great that Prince Harry wore the Spider-Man outfit as he has time and again shown that he “genuinely cares” for the kids.

This sweet gesture comes amidst all the backlash he and his wife have been receiving for their upcoming docuseries, Harry & Meghan. The trailer for the Netflix program was recently released on December 1. This was also the day Prince William and his wife Kate, the Princess of Wales, were on their first trip to the United States in eight years.

Harry and Meghan is reported to release on December 08, however, a date hasn’t been confirmed by Netflix.
