Prince Harry


Prince Harry is coming back to America. And, no, he won't be stopping in Las Vegas.

But the uncle-to-be is going to plenty busy!

According to his published itinerary, Prince William's little brother will arrive in Washington, D.C., Thursday afternoon and head directly to Capitol Hill for a tour of an exhibition staged by the HALO Trust—the largest mine-clearance charity in the world and a favorite cause of Harry's late mum, Princess Diana.

Harry is then expected to make a speech at a dinner and reception at the home of the British Ambassador, Sir Peter Westmacott.

His time on Friday will be split between the U.S. capital and Colorado, with the 28-year-old royal beginning his day at Arlington National Cemetery, where he will lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Solider, followed by a tour of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Then it's off to Denver for a reception hosted by Beverley Simpson, the consul-general to Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming, where he'll be joined by some Olympic gold medalists from last year's London Games.

Harry will spend the remainder of the weekend in Colorado, where he'll meet with British athletes competing in the 2013 Warrior Games (like the Paralympics) on Saturday and watching cycling at the U.S. Air Force Academy on Sunday.

Harry heads back to the East Coast on Monday.

The following day, he'll visit spots in both New Jersey and New York that were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Then it's into Manhattan for an event to support the British Government's GREAT campaign and a baseball training session with a dozen youngsters benefiting from the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

His royal responsibilities that day will come to an end at reception and dinner with the American Friends of the Royal Foundation.

Wednesday, his last day in the States (We miss him already!) will be spent in Greenwich, Conn., at the Sentebale Polo Cup, where he will give a speech at lunchtime and go to mallet for the Sentebale team. Then it's back to the U.K. that evening.
