Prince Harry’s 31st Birthday Might Not Have Gone According To Plan — But He Gave The Internet A Gift In The Form Of His Full Red Beard!

Cue the Top Gun theme song!

On Tuesday, Prince Harry celebrated his 31st birthday donning a full beard, a flight suit, and surrounded by 40 vintage jet planes. Whoa, we might need a minute!

This official event is the first appearance of the reformed bad boy since returning from his conservation work in Africa.

Prince William‘s younger brother was in his element as he attended an event at the Goodwood Aerodrome in West Essex — which happens to be the same location where the ginger royal launched his Endeavor Fund back in 2014.

In fact, the charity raises money for wounded/ill servicemen and women.

Isn’t he just the best??

Initially, the controversial prince was supposed to fly alongside other veterans and wounded servicemen in remembrance of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. What fun!

Unfortunately, Harry didn’t pull a Tom Cruise because decided to give up his seat to Tom Neil, the last living Royal Air Force ace from World War II, and two other veterans after one of the planes was reportedly left “unserviceable.”

Whomp, whomp! Though his monarch grandmother should be happy that Harry remembered his manners.

It seems that Prince George‘s uncle still had a good time as the Kensington Palace‘s Twitter account shared some fun snaps (below) from the outing.

However, the internet completely lost its chill after Prince Charles‘ youngest was snapped looking tanner and furrier than ever. LOLz!

Fans took to the social media site and wrote:

This. Is. AH-Mazing!

Things might not have gone according to plan for the birthday boy, but he still has plenty of celebrating to look forward to as the opening ceremony for the Rugby World Cup is later this week. Perhaps former flame Chelsy Davy will be in attendance? Oh we hope so!

Happy birthday Harry! Feel free to let us know where to RSVP for you official party. M’kay?!
