Prince Harry To Be Named 'Legend of Aviation'

Prince Harry will be honored alongside Apollo 11 hero Buzz Aldrin as a living legend of aviation at a glamorous ceremony in Beverly Hills, hosted by none other than John Travolta. The Duke of Sussex, aged 39, has been recognized for his achievements, surpassing even Charles Duke, who became the youngest person to walk on the moon at the age of 36 in 1972.

The 21st Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards, scheduled for Friday, January 19, 2024, will recognize individuals who have made remarkable contributions to the field of aviation and aerospace.

The ceremony will also acknowledge Prince Harry's remarkable work in establishing the Invictus Games Foundation. However, it remains uncertain whether Harry or his wife Meghan Markle will attend the ceremony, leaving fans curious.

The inclusion of Prince Harry in the list of inductees has sparked a lively discussion on social media, with some expressing confusion and questioning the reasons behind his selection. 

One Twitter user wrote, "I hope other military pilots who have achieved great things in their field receive the same recognition." Another user asked, "Is this some kind of joke? What legendary accomplishments has he actually achieved? I genuinely want to know!" 

Nevertheless, supporters of the Sussexes rallied around Prince Harry, congratulating him for his service as a soldier, including his two tours in Afghanistan.

Established in 2003, this event aims to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to aviation and aerospace. The list of inductees includes living legends, replacing those who have passed away, such as Neil Armstrong. 

Prince Harry's impressive military career as a forward air controller and Apache helicopter pilot, which involved numerous training missions in the UK, US, and Australia, spanned a decade, culminating in his promotion to the rank of Captain.

Harry will be joining the ranks of aviation and aerospace legends like Aldrin, Jeff Bezos, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman, Elon Musk, and Saudi Prince Sultan bin Salman Al Saud. This year, he will be inducted alongside other aerospace icons such as US navy pilot Fred George and former world speed record holder Steve Hinton. 

The event's website commended the duke for his incredible work with charities and organizations like Travalyst, Sentebale, African Parks, WellChild, and the Invictus Games. 

According to a statement on the website, Prince Harry is not only a humanitarian, military veteran, and mental wellness advocate, but also an environmentalist. He has dedicated his life to championing causes that he deeply cares about and that create lasting change for people and places.
