Prince Harry visits DC, accepts award for service

Britain's Prince Harry, making first DC visit, accepts award for work with wounded veterans By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Britain's Prince Harry has accepted an award for his charitable activities on behalf of wounded servicemen during an event in Washington, his first visit to the U.S. capital.

The 27-year-old accepted the award Monday from the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank. Earlier in the day, he visited with wounded veterans at the British Ambassador's Residence.

Harry, who is training as an Apache military pilot, has worked with a number of charities including 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's annual award ceremony is also honoring U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.
