Prince Harry is to be inducted into the “Living Legends of Aviation” for his work as a British Army veteran and pilot.

He will receive the honour at a glitzy awards ceremony hosted by actor and aviation ambassador John Travolta in Beverly Hills, California, next Friday. The event was set up to honour those who make significant contributions to aviation and aerospace.

But royal expert Angela Levin is unsure whether the Duke of Sussex is worthy of such an award and points out just how few hours Harry has under his belt.

She wrote on X: “Harry flew for 20 weeks in Afghanistan. Surely not enough to have a Living Legends of Aviation award.”

Many others have questioned Harry’s credentials, with an RAF source telling Express.co.uk: “It’s a little bit odd.”

Others took to social media to discuss the news, with one person writing on X: “Is this a joke? What is the legendary stuff that he has done? I am asking seriously! What the heck has he done?”

Dozens of others thought the award was a “joke”, with one person writing: “This is a joke, he has done nothing to earn this.”

But Sussex fans were quick to heap praise on Harry and say he was worthy of the accolade.

One person said: “Oh wow, how, wonderful news. Prince Harry deserves this, thank you LLA for recognizing Prince Harry. Congratulations are in order.”

Another wrote: “Yeah!!!!!! This is EXCELLENT news!!!!! Go Prince Harry!! You are a living legend who is leaving an indelible mark in this world. You are an amazing leader and so inspirational! Your mother would be so proud of you!”

Harry served in the military for ten years and completed two tours of Afghanistan where he flew in several combat missions, as well as flying in training missions in the UK, US and Australia.

He is also the founder of the Invictus Games, a competitive sports tournament for wounded and sick ex-military personnel, many of whom suffered horrific injuries while serving for their country.

In accepting the award, Harry will join other aviation and aerospace “legends” including Buzz Aldrin, Jeff Bezos, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman, Elon Musk and Saudi Prince Sultan bin Salman Al Saud.

Other aerospace icons set to be inducted alongside the Duke this year include US navy pilot Fred George and former world speed record holder Steve Hinton.

The event’s website also praised the duke for his work with charities and organisations including Travalyst, Sentebale, African Parks, WellChild and the Invictus Games.

A statement on the event’s website said: “Prince Harry is a humanitarian, military veteran, mental wellness advocate and environmentalist. He has dedicated his life to advancing causes that he is passionate about and that bring about permanent change for people and places.”
