Prince Harry was 'proud dad' at flypast

Britain's Prince Harry felt like a "proud dad" when he watched the war veterans take part in the flypast on Tuesday (15.09.15).

The 31-year-old royal was overcome with joy when he saw the last remaining World War Two servicemen fly the fighter jets in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain at Goodwood Aerodrome in West Sussex, England.

Speaking of the servicemen taking part in the event, Harry told Channel 4's 'Battle of Britain: Return of the Spitfires': "I feel like a proud dad. I am thrilled they have managed to last the distance so far and have actually been enjoying it."

The flame-haired hunk was determined to capture as much of the event as he could on camera and could be seen happy-snapping at the fighter jets before their takeoff.

The Prince even told one of the pilots to "to do some aerobatics over the field," and according to wounded veteran Nathan Forster, "he did a few "loops and rolls."

Harry - the grandson of Queen Elizabeth - was expected to fly in one of the four two-seater Spitfires taking part in the display but gave up his seat for veteran Tom Neil, 95, after one of the vintage planes developed a mechanical fault.

Meanwhile, the handsome Prince, who spent his 31st birthday at the memorial event, has just returned to the UK after working on conservation projects in South Africa.
