Prince Harry was honoured at the Living Legends of Aviation Awards and recalled Princess Diana's dance with John Travolta during his acceptance speech.

On Friday, Jan. 19, the Duke of Sussex notably appeared without his wife, Meghan Markle, at the 21st Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards in Beverly Hills.

The event was hosted by the Official Ambassador of Aviation, Travolta, and the two exchanged an adorable memory.

When Prince Harry was called upon the stage to receive his award, he was presented the honour by the Golden Globes award winner.

After taking up the podium, Harry, 39, described the moment, "This is nice", and addressed Travolta, 69, "Thanks very much, Captain John."

He recalled, "I was one year old when you danced with my mum… and look at us now."

The younger son of King Charles and Princess Diana also extended his "heartfelt thank you to the living legends of aviation" to grace him with the honours.

The Duke of Sussex was among the four people who were inducted at the 21st Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards in Beverly Hills on January 19.

In the past, Prince William's younger brother served as a helicopter pilot in the British Army military services.

In addition to flying training missions in the U.S., U.K., and Australia, he also served in combat missions in Afghanistan.

Harry was awarded his Flying Wings in 2010 after he completed the eight-month-long Army Pilot Course at the Army Aviation Centre.

Later, he became a fully operational Apache pilot by February 2012.
