"Thomas the Tank Engine has been a comforting, familiar face to so many families over the last 75 years -entertaining, educating and inspiring children on important issues through exciting stories and characters," Harry said.
"I certainly have fond memories of growing up with Thomas & Friends and being transported to new places through his adventures."
In a number of throwback images, the little prince can be seen holding a very cute Thomas the Tank Engine bag. So adorable.
The episode will also see a new character, the Duchess of Loughborough, with actress Rosamund Pike providing the voiceover.
She said it was an "absolute honour" explaining: "I take it as a big responsibility to play the Duchess who is a lovely, warm, bubbly sort of effervescent engine that I am incredibly drawn to because she is very anxious to get things right."
Bring on the weekend! We can't wait to tune in for Thomas' special birthday.
