Prince Harry will be returning to the USA in May, but he'll be giving Las Vegas a miss
Prince Harry is heading back to the USA and we’ve got all the details of his May trip.
The prince will head over to the States on May 9 and will spend a week promoting the rehabilitation of injured American and UK troops, as well as publicising his own charities and supporting British interests.
Skipping Las Vegas, after the controversial nude photo scandal of last summer, Prince Harry will visit Washington DC, Denver, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
As part of his tour, he will watch the opening ceremony of the Warrior Games, in Colorado Springs, where injured servicemen and women will compete, and meet survivors of Hurricane Sandy.
The 28-year-old will also host a fundraising St. Regis Polo match in Connecticut, in aid of his African-based charity, Sentebale, which supports orphans and vulnerable children in Lesotho.
Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, the prince’s private secretary, said: ‘Prince Harry wants to highlight once again the extraordinary commitment and sacrifice of our injured servicemen and women – our wounded warriors.’
He added: ‘Although a prince, Harry is also an operational soldier – indeed he’s a soldier’s soldier – therefore throughout this briefing the recurring theme is to help recognise and bring a spotlight on to the work being done to help these outstanding young men and women.’
