PRINCE HARRY made a heartwarming gesture to war veterans as he reflected on their service in a tribute for VE day.
Prince Hary warmed the hearts of Britons as viewers watched his special BBC’s The One Show segment on Monday evening. The Duke of Sussex praised the Guinea Pig Club while speaking to the families of those whose family served in World War 2. The footage was prerecorded and saw Harry Zoom call in from his home in Los Angeles.
Prince Harry said: “It is days like this when it is so important to remember the Guinea Pig Club.
“And to also look forward to everything that the CASEVAC Club will achieve as well.
“Those individuals that signed up and chose to serve and then had life-changing injuries didn’t stop there.
“That is why it is incredibly impressive but at the same time so incredibly uplifting.”

Prince Harry also explained why he decided to speak with The One Show on this issue.
He said: “The One Show got in touch and asked if I could shine a light on a group of veterans that lots of people might not know about.”
Prince Harry’s appearance on The One Show comes after the Duke praised young Britons for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
While being supported by one of his patronages, the Onside Youth Zones, Harry commended Britons for their strength in a video message shared from his home.

In the video, Prince Harry recalled the Onside Awards ceremony he attended in November 2019.
He said: “Hi guys, just a few months ago we were all together at the OnSide Youth Zones Awards and wow, what a night that was.
“I remember meeting so many incredible people and hearing your stories, stories of strength, determination, resilience – but ultimately, of courage.

“And as I have said you on that night, and I will repeat it again, hats off to every single one of you for surviving, but also for thriving.”
In his heartfelt video, Prince Harry acknowledged how the challenges of the youngsters supported by the OnSide Youth Zones have become even harsher due to the coronavirus pandemic.
