The Duke of Sussex released the video for Scotty's Little Soldiers

Prince Harry dresses as Spider-Man for touching Christmas message

Children supported by Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a UK charity serving the bereaved families of military personnel, received an early Christmas gift from Prince Harry.

Prior to their annual Christmas party, the young ones were shown a Christmas message featuring The Duke of Sussex. In the video, Harry made an appearance as Spider-Man and addressed the group, highlighting the enjoyable activities they would be participating in, such as a search for five hidden “villains” who intended to “ruin Christmas.”

He also addressed the mixed emotions that many of the children would have felt, saying that “Christmas is a time when we really, really miss our loved ones.

“That’s fine, but it’s also possible to feel guilty for enjoying ourselves without our parents. But I’m here to assure you that our parents always want us to enjoy ourselves, so don’t feel guilty; you’re allowed to have the best time ever, especially with the Scotty’s Little Soldiers community.”

In addition to wishing the kids a “Merry Christmas,” Harry pulled up his Spider-Man mask to reveal himself to them at the end of the video.

The Duke of Sussex holds a special place in his heart for the 2010-founded charity, and he first met Nikki Scott, its founder, at a Party at the Palace event in 2017.




The charity was chosen as one of the recipients of charitable donations made for the occasion after his marriage to Meghan Markle.

Speaking about the occasion, Nikki said: “Having Prince Harry’s ongoing support is incredible for everyone at Scotty’s. He is aware of the difficulties faced during particular seasons of the year because he experienced growing up without a parent.

“One of those occasions is Christmas. We host the party to help members meet new people and develop friendships as well as to remind them that they are not alone.

“In addition, it gives parents and caregivers access to resources and information to support their children,” she continued.




Harry’s unexpected appearance particularly delighted the kids. Emily, 12, who is 12 years old, said: “It’s cool that someone who’s been through the same experience as us is thinking about us.

He truly understands what it’s like to grow up without a parent; he’s not just trying to be sympathetic. My friends think it’s really cool that Prince Harry writes me letters and messages.
