WASHINGTON (AP/WUSA) - Britain's Prince Harry met with wounded servicemembers and helped plant a tree at the British Ambassador's residence in Washington during his first visit to the city.
Harry traveled to the nation's capital to accept an award for his charitable activities on behalf of wounded service members. He accepted the award at a Monday night dinner hosted by the Atlantic Council at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
Harry, who is training as an Apache military pilot, has worked with a number of charities. They include Walking With the Wounded, a British charity that retrains and re-educates veterans, as well as Help For Heroes, which helps wounded servicemen and women.
The Atlantic Council is a Washington-based think tank. Its annual award ceremony will also honor U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.
Earlier in the day, Harry attended a reception at the British Ambassador's residence for soldiers who participated in the Warrior Games. Harry chatted with some of the British soldiers as well as with Dr. Jill Biden, who was also at the event.
