Here’s What Prince Harry Did On Day 2 Of His U.S. Tour

Following a Capitol Hill appearance that temporarily stopped work for dozens of female staffers, HRH Prince Harry of Wales kicked off the second day of his tour of the United States on a somber note.

On Friday morning, the 28-year-old royal arrived at Arlington National Cemetery in his British Army ceremonial uniform of the Blues and Royals. Harry laid a wreath with a personal note at Section 60. The handwritten note read, “To my comrades-in-arms of the United States of America, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the cause of freedom. Captain Harry Wales.”

The prince also laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a small bouquet of flowers at the John F. Kennedy memorial.

Harry then changed into his British Army camouflage and headed over to the Military Advanced Training Center of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. to meet wounded U.S. soldiers.

The third-in-line to the British throne is due in Colorado on Friday night, where he’ll attend a reception hosted by the British Consul-General to Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming Beverly Simpson. On Saturday, Harry will spend all day at the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs. Be sure to follow @RoyalReview for live tweets and updates.

    How can you dislike the Royals? They are always doing good deeds. Keep it up Harry!
