Officials say Britain's Prince Harry is returning to the United States - but this time he's skipping Las Vegas.
St. James's Palace said Monday that the 28-year-old prince will travel to the U.S. east coast as well as Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado. His trip will include trips to Arlington National Cemetery, Walter Reed National Medical Center and the competition between British and American veteran athletes in the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs.
The United States Olympic Committee's (USOC) Chief of Paralympics Charlie Huebner said in a written statement:
"We are excited that Prince Harry will be attending the fourth annual Warrior Games presented by Deloitte," said Chief of Paralympics Charlie Huebner. "The United States Olympic Committee and the Royal Foundation have been working together since last year on our shared mission to develop sustainable community programs in both the U.S. and the U.K. for people with physical disabilities, including our wounded veterans and service members. Prince Harry is personally committed to help expand these programs, and we are honored to have him participate in the event."
He will also visit Hurricane Sandy victims in New Jersey.
Harry, who is third in line to the throne, made headlines on another U.S. visit, when he was caught frolicking in the nude after what was alleged to have been a game of strip billiards in his Las Vegas hotel room.
