Prince Harry Is Coming Back to America
March 25, 2013
He's coming back... Prince Harry will visit several U.S. cities in May during a trip aimed at focusing attention on his charity work.
The Palace announced Monday that the 28-year-old prince will kick off his 7-day tour on May 9 with visits including Washington D.C., New York, Colorado and parts of New Jersey and Connecticut.
Harry's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, said his U.S. visit will include engagements on behalf of charities he is closely associated and will include "a strong central theme of supporting injured servicemen and women from both the UK and US armed forces."
In Washington, the prince will view an exhibition on landmine clearance and will visit Arlington National Cemetery and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Among his other activities will be attending the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado -- a competition involving wounded servicemen and women -- as well as a visit to areas in New Jersey hit by Hurricane Sandy.
The prince's last visit to America resulted in a royal scandal when nude photos of Harry emerged on the internet during an infamous weekend last August in Las Vegas.
