Prince Harry has written a heart-wrenching letter to bereaved children of members of the British Armed Forces, reminding them they "are not alone".
The Duke of Sussex wrote the letter to members of Scotty's Little Soldiers, a charity for bereaved British Forces children and young people, on Remembrance Sunday, saying they are all in his "thoughts and heart".
Harry shared that he learned how to cope with the loss of his mother Princess Diana "through community and talking about my grief".
"As many of us observe and reflect on Remembrance Sunday, I wanted to write to you and let you know you are all in my thoughts and heart today. We share a bond even without ever meeting one another, because we share in having lost a parent," the Duke wrote in the letter. "I know first-hand the pain and grief that comes with loss and want you to know that you are not alone.
"While difficult feelings will come up today as we pay tribute to heroes like your mum or dad, I hope you can find comfort and strength in knowing that their love for you lives and shines on. Whenever you need a reminder of this, I encourage you to lean into your friends at Scotty's Little Soldiers.
"One of the ways I've learned to cope has been through community and talking about my grief, and I couldn't be more grateful and relieved that you have amazing people walking beside you throughout your journey.
"We all know some days are harder than others, but together those days are made easier."
Harry continued, "Today and every day, I admire and respect all the men and women who have given their lives in service of us - especially those in your family. I am also incredibly proud of you for being the best example in remembering them.
"When you march together in today's parade, wearing your yellow and black scarves, I know it will be hard, but equally important to do. Today you will bring new awareness to young people, just like you, who will benefit from this community of support. I salute you for serving others in need, in the most honourable memory of your parent."
Scotty's Little Soldiers was set up by war widow Nikki Scott in 2010, following her husband Corporal Lee Scott's death in Afghanistan the year prior. Nikki saw the impact on her two young children and wanted to help support others who were in the same position.
Speaking of Harry's letter, Nikki shared that she was thankful for his support.
"We are so grateful to Prince Harry for his continued support. Our members know that he truly understands what it's like to grow up without a parent and it means so much to them to know his thoughts are with them," she said.
"To receive his letter on Remembrance Sunday has given them a huge boost on a proud but difficult day."
