John Travolta was the ‘driving force’ behind Prince Harry being named a ‘Living Legend of Aviation’, saying he had ‘always felt a connection with the Duke ever since he danced with Diana at the White House’

John Travolta was said to be the driving force behind Prince Harry being named a «Living Legend of Aviation» due to his «strong emotional connection and connection» with the Duke through his friendship with the late Princess Diana.

Travolta, 69, is said to have been one of the «biggest supporters» of Harry, who was honored at tomorrow’s event during a selection process between existing honorees and committee members.

Diana and Travolta famously danced together at a White House dinner in an iconic moment in 1985 – said to be the pinnacle of the Hollywood actor’s life.

A source close to the event said Travolta, who won The Living Legends Ambassador of Aviation award in 2007, believes Diana’s sons are carrying on her legacy of charitable work.

And an insider hit back at accusations that Harry’s award was a publicity stunt or a downgrade of his royal status, describing the proposal as «disgraceful».

Prince Harry to be named ‘living legend of aviation’

John Travolta was said to be the driving force behind Prince Harry being named a «living legend of aviation» due to the «strong emotional connection and connection» he has with the Duke through his friendship with the late Princess Diana.

Diana and Travolta once famously danced together at a White House dinner in an iconic moment in 1985 – said to be the highlight of the Hollywood actor’s life.

«Harry’s name was suggested because of his amazing commitment to helping people in and out of the military, promoting awareness of the triumphs and travails of this life,» a source told The Mirror.

“But he is tall as a philanthropist. Any suggestion of this as a publicity stunt is disgraceful and insulting.

«John was of course a supporter of Harry and supported his nomination. I’ve always felt a connection to him, especially since he and Diana enjoyed that moment of pop culture history dancing at the White House.»

A top military veteran has described the Duke of Sussex’s honor as a «pathetic» publicity stunt.

Retired senior officers say that while Harry was rightly awarded for flying an army helicopter in Afghanistan, it was his royal status that saw him singled out from hundreds of equally worthy pilots.

Colorado-based Kiddie Hawk Air Academy, the organization behind Harry’s gong, is a non-profit organization that works to spark an interest in aviation among young people.

Harry will be inducted as a «Living Legend of Aviation» at an awards ceremony hosted by John Travolta in Beverly Hills, California, on Friday. The Duke’s work in setting up the Invictus Games Foundation will also be celebrated. It is unclear whether Harry or his wife Meghan will attend.

Retired officer Colonel Richard Kemp (pictured) said Harry was a ‘brave guy’ and his role in Afghanistan was ‘undoubtedly very dangerous’. But he said there are «helicopter pilots who have done far more extraordinary things in Iraq and Afghanistan, risking their lives to save their fellow soldiers.»

Harry served two tours of Afghanistan as a forward air traffic controller and Apache helicopter co-pilot gunner. He served in the army for ten years and rose to the rank of captain.

Lord West, the former head of the Royal Navy, responded to Harry’s award: “He is not a living legend of aviation. To suggest that it is is pathetic. The whole thing looks a bit like nonsense if they are willing to pick someone like Prince Harry.

“When he flew for the military, he didn’t put on any big exciting display of amazing flying skills. They’re just trying to get publicity. They know it will cause a stir.’

Retired officer Colonel Richard Kemp said Harry was a «brave guy» and his role in Afghanistan was «undoubtedly very dangerous».

But he said they were «helicopter pilots who did far more extraordinary things in Iraq and Afghanistan, risking their lives to save their fellow soldiers.»
