Prince Harry Set to Present at the 2013 London Marathon

The Duke of Cambridge's younger bro proves time and time again that he's an active activist. 

Prince Harry, an official patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust, will be lending a royal hand to this year's much-anticipated Virgin London Marathon, St. James's Palace has announced. In accepting a three-year commitment to the cause (that's allocated over £50 million, or roughly $76 million, to events nationwide!), the prince will not only make a grand appearance but present awards to the winners of each race: wheelchair/IPC athletics, mini marathon, and elite men and women. Select volunteers of the organization will also be oh-so-lucky to meet the charmer in person. 

His Royal Highness has lately been keeping most of his public appearances to the more humanitarian kind.

On April 19, Harry is slated to attend The Walking With the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge, an outing to bring together a team of wounded servicemen and women to trek across 208 miles of the Antarctic to the geographic South Pole

Besides delivering the deserving service personnel a short speech, Harry will also meet with the contestants to talk about their experiences.

As if we didn't adore the royal redhead before!
