Prince Harry heading back to U.S.; Vegas not on itinerary

March 25, 2013|By Nardine Saad

Prince Harry is heading back to the United States, but this time Las Vegas doesn't seem to be on the itinerary.

His visit last summer made headlines not for any charity work, as he might this time, but for nude photos that were taken during an alleged game of strip billiards in Sin City.

This time, the British prince will be focusing on his royal duties, including seeing to his charities and making military visits during his May 9 to 15 trip.

He'll be competing in a polo match in Greenwich, Conn., to benefit his Sentebale charity that he co-founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho. The 28-year-old is also planning to attend some of the U.S.Ā versus U.K. Warrior Games, which pit veterans from each nation against each other.

"Prince Harry wants to highlight once again the extraordinary commitment and sacrifice of our injured servicemen and women," his private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton told the Associated Press.

"He is a soldiers' soldier and will bring a spotlight on what's being done to help these outstanding men and women," he added at the press briefing Monday.

Other stops on his itinerary include Denver and Colorado Springs, Colo., New Jersey sites ravaged by Hurricane Sandy,Ā Arlington National Cemetery, Walter Reed National Medical Center and Capitol Hill for an exhibition on land-mine clearance.

The younger son of the late Princess Diana will be the guest of honor at a Manhattan benefit for the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, which focuses on work with the armed forces, youth and conservation, according to the charity's website.

Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, will not be attending the event because they're minimizing travel abroad to focus on the pregnant duchess, who is due in June, People reports.
