Scotty’s Little Soldiers

May 2024

Today, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex shared his continued commitment to supporting military families by joining 50 bereaved military children and young people at a special gathering organized by Scotty’s Little Soldiers. Held in Park Lane, London, this event was not just a meeting but a celebration of courage, resilience, and the lasting impact of community.

Today marks the first in-person convening since The Duke was named Global Ambassador of Scotty’s Little Soldiers last year. His presence brought an aura of joy and excitement, engaging with the young attendees through a series of fun-filled activities. From tug of war to rocket balloons, these activities served a greater purpose, allowing the young people to connect with peers who understand the profound impact of their loss, foster new friendships, and create a supportive network.

The day also included a more intimate gathering where The Duke spent time with members of Scotty’s Council. This session offered a platform for these young individuals to share their personal stories of loss, resilience, and the critical support Scotty’s has provided them through their journey. This meaningful dialogue underscored the importance of the organization’s work and the difference it makes in the lives of bereaved military families.
