Young and single, Britain’s Prince Harry, 24, is going to New York for his first formal overseas engagements outside of his home turf.
CNN and the BBC report that this is the first visit to the United States since the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
The Palace publicists released a statement to the media and claim that this trip is part of Harry’s royal training of sorts.
Harry reportedly will visit to the World Trade Center site on May 29. Then he will participate in a charity polo match on Governor’s Island intended to raise cash for his African charity, Sentebale.
Harry will also visit the Harlem’s Children’s Zone, a nonprofit community-focus organization accompanied with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho.
The two-day trip at the end of the month will be Prince Harry’s first visit to the US since he was a child.
St. James Palace released the schedule information, which also reveals Prince Harry will meet families of those killed in the 11 September terror attacks at the site where the twin towers once stood.
Harry will then commemorate the 67 British victims by formally naming the British Garden at Hanover Square, before meeting more families at a reception.
Harry will also reportedly attend a private reception in support of New York’s British interests.
Britain’s Prince Harry recently won a coveted army popularity prize.
He had completed initial pilot training with the RAF – and was voted as “the man you would most want on your squadron” by his peers and instructors.
During his graduation ceremony – which was at the RAF base at Barkston Heath, Lincolnshire – Harry was awarded the Horsa Trophy in front of over 100 of his fellow Army Air Corps colleagues.
A source said told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “It shows he is not only popular, but has natural pilot skills.”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
