Prince Harry’s Christmas Card Includes A Heartwarming Tribute To Veterans

Prince Harry, a veteran himself, took a different approach to his Christmas card this year than his brother and sister-in-law.

The card was tweeted out today by Kensington Palace and features the Prince standing next to a fighter jet. Seated inside the jet is 95 year-old Battle of Britain veteran Tom Neil, smiling ear to ear.

The two met at the 75th anniversary of the battle. In an Instagram post, the Prince said he chose the photo because he “considered it a great honor to meet Tom during the Battle of Britain flypast in September. It was one of his most memorable moments of 2015.”

From InStyle:

It would be hard to beat as charming a family portrait as Prince William and Kate Middleton’s official Christmas card, but Prince Harry is holding his own. Kensington Palace released the Prince’s card in a tweet which features him standing next to a fighter plane with Tom Neil, a 95-year-old Battle of Britain veteran, at the pilot’s seat. The photo is shot in black and white and shows a very pleased looking Harry and Neil, who looks like he is on cloud nine. The palace captioned the photo, “Merry Christmas from Prince Harry! Here’s his Christmas card photo showing one of his favorite moments from 2015.”
