Recently, Prince Harry caused a hilarious reaction after making a joke about John Travolta dancing with his mother, Princess Diana, in the White House in 1985 while receiving an important honor in the ceremony of the Living Legends of Aviation Awards 2024.
The Duke of Sussex attended the ceremony in Beverly Hills, which was hosted by actor John Travolta and where he was awarded for his work as an Apache helicopter pilot with the British Army in Afghanistan.
When the son of King Charles III went to the stage to receive his honor and give a speech, he met Travolta, who put a medal around his neck and gave him a hug. By reaching the microphone, he said, ‘This is very nice‘, thanked the actor, and talked about the encounter with Princess Diana.

“I was 1 year old when you danced with my mom“, said the Duke. “As you’ve told everybody here, and continue to dine out on that probably every single night. But look at us now. It’s great. So if we’re not going to dance together, we’ll fly together“, continued Harry.
