Prince Harry to be honored in D.C. for work with wounded veterans

Prince Harry will be in D.C. on Monday to visit wounded veterans and accept an award honoring his charitable work to help rehabilitate injured service members.

Harry, Britain’s so-called “spare to the heir,” shares the Atlantic Council’s “Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership” with his brother, Prince William.

According to the Associated Press, Harry has worked with several charities, including Walking with the Wounded and Help for Heroes.

He is scheduled to appear at the British ambassador’s residence, where he will meet wounded veterans, before accepting the award Monday night at a dinner at the Ritz Carlton.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and violin virtuoso Anne-Sophie Mutter will also be honored at the event.
