Prince Harry dresses as Spiderman in sweet Christmas video message for bereaved children

The Duke of Sussex has dressed up as Marvel superhero Spiderman to issue a sweet Christmas message to bereaved children.

Prince Harry, 38, donned the costume to take part in a video for children's charity Scotty's Little Soldiers, which supports children whose parents have died while serving in the armed forces.

The dad-of-two, who penned a touching letter for the charity about grief to mark Remembrance Day, kept his identity under wraps throughout the video, before pulling off his mask in the final seconds to wish the children a Merry Christmas.

"Hey Scotty's Little Soldiers. Welcome to the Christmas Party," Harry started off by saying.

He went on to ask the children to 'save Christmas' by defeating the villains who had stolen Santa Claus' presents. The children completed challenges during the Heroes and Villains themed party.

Harry then finished off his speech with a heartfelt message to the children. The 38 year old said: "At the same time, Christmas is a time we will miss our loved ones really, really badly. And that's okay.

"But at the same time, it can be possible to feel guilty for having fun without our parents. But I am here to assure you that our parents always want us to have fun, okay.

"So don't feel guilty – you're allowed to have the best time ever, especially with this Scotty's Little Soldiers community."

The Duke then signed off by saying: "So, go out there and have the best time, and…" before lifting up his mask to reveal a large grin, and saying: "Merry Christmas".

Harry has long supported the charity and previously dressed up as Father Christmas in 2019 to share a similar message to the children during the festive period.

In November, he penned a touching letter about losing a parent and his own experience with grief to mark Remembrance Day for Scotty's Little Soldiers.

The dad-of-two said he knows "first-hand" the pain the children feel after losing his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997, when he was just 12 years old.

He also urged the children to talk to those around them as he said he's "learned to cope" through "community" and talking about his grief.
