Spidey Harry! While delivering a sweet Christmas message to military children, Prince Harry did this in a head-to-toe Spider-Man costume.
“Hey, Scotty’s little soldiers! Welcome to the Christmas party,” said the Duke of Sussex, 38, in a YouTube video posted by the British charity on Saturday December 3, in which he wore a face-covering Spider-Man outfit. “I hope you got some rest before tonight’s excitement. I hear from Sharky and George [that] There are five villains and you must stop them from ruining Christmas. So use your teamwork, your brain, and your brawn to make sure you do just that. Find them and don’t let them ruin Christmas!”
Harry has long been a supporter of Scotty’s Little Soldiers, an organization that helps children of deceased military veterans. The non-profit organization hosts an annual themed Christmas party, and this year the focus was on “Heroes and Villains.” The little contestants were then tasked with “saving” the day by defeating “bad guys” who stole Santa’s presents. To do this, they were asked to work together to complete a series of challenges and solve secret encrypted messages.
Paying homage to the hero side of the party theme, the BetterUp CIO’s Spider-Man outfit wore a replica of the suit Tom Holland‘s version of the comic book character is worn in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Harry kept the Spidey mask on his face for the duration of the video – until the end of the footage.
In his one-minute video message, Harry spoke about the difficulties of celebrating the holidays after the death of a parent. (The military veteran can relate to Scotty’s little soldiers after he lost his mother, Princess Diana, in a car accident in 1997.)
“Christmas is a time when we really, really miss our loved ones. And that’s fine,” Harry – who shares son Archie, 3, and daughter Lilibet, 17 months, with his wife Megan Markle – said in the video from Saturday. “But at the same time, having fun without our parents can make you feel guilty. But I’m here to assure you that our parents always want us to have fun, okay? So don’t feel guilty. You are allowed to have the best time ever, especially with the Scotty’s Little Soldiers community. So get out there, have the best time and Merry Christmas.”
While Harry appeared to be in his element in the super suit, both Archie and Lili are yet to reach out to their dad. During his little ones’ first California Halloween last year, Archie and Lili weren’t smitten with the idea of dressing up.
“We wanted to do something fun for the kids, but then the kids just wouldn’t be there. Archie was a dinosaur for maybe five minutes — not even five minutes,” recalled Meghan, 41, during a November 2021 appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Harry finally spoke [Archie] in putting the [dinosaur] Head on, but Lili was a skunk. She was a little skunk. i know how flower out Bambi.”
Harry and the suits Alum relocated to Montecito, California in 2020 after stepping down from his senior royals positions and leaving the UK
