Prince Harry was a special guest of Michelle Obama at the White House yesterday, joining the First Lady in the East Room for a Mother’s Day tea party attended by members of the U.S. Armed Forces.
It was the second stop on the 28-year-old on his U.S. tour. Earlier in the day Harry was accompanied by Sen. John McCain to view an exhibit at the Russell Senate Office Building for one of his charities — landmine clearance group The Halo Trust. This was a pet project of his mother, the late Princess Diana.
Harry, a helicopter pilot who has served in Afghanistan, will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider in Arlington National Cemetery, honoring service men and women who died in combat and will also tour Walter Reed Medical Center during the Washington D.C. leg of his journey.
Before heading west he will also tour the Hurricane Sandy destruction on the Jersey Shore.
The Prince will then attend the opening ceremony of the Warrior Games in Denver, Colorado, an event for more than 200 wounded service personnel–where he’ll undoubtedly be cheering on the British team.
Will he stop in Las Vegas? Not a chance.
