Prince Harry might be best known as Will’s little brother, but the young royal is now making a name for himself as an advocate for injured soldiers thanks to his recent trip around the United States. As if we need another reason to swoon over him, the prince, who is a captain in the British army, has reportedly said he wants “to be a champion of ‘wounded warriors.”
On Friday, Prince Harry paid his respects at Arlington National Cemetery by laying a wreath for fallen American soldiers. With the wreath, he left a handwritten note thanking the soldiers for making the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom. The royal then followed in Sophia Bush's footsteps with a trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he wore his fatigues to visit with wounded soldiers.
Prince Harry spent the weekend in Colorado watching the 2013 Warrior Games, which is a competition that “showcases the resilient spirit of today's wounded, ill or injured service members from all branches of the military.” To wrap up his U.S. tour, the prince is scheduled to arrive in New York City today to tour communities that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
