Prince Harry To Visit U.S. Again

Get ready, royal fans. Prince Harry is coming back to America. Harry, 27, who did Apache helicopter training in California and Arizona last year and wowed the Caribbean and Brazil on his first solo overseas tour last month, will be in Washington, D.C, on May 7 to accept the Atlantic Council’s 2012 Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership.

The honor recognizes the prince’s charitable work, particularly on behalf of military veterans and servicemen and women and their families. In a statement, Harry office stressed that he is accepting the award on behalf of “his brother the Duke of Cambridge, and their joint work through the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.”


Harry has worked with charities such as Walking with the Wounded and Help for Heroes. During their visit to Los Angeles last July, William and his wife Kate attended an event put on by ServiceNation, a group dedicated to inspiring voluntary citizen service in America.

This weekend, Harry caused a stir at this weekend’s London Marathon by telling the BBC that his brother and sister-in-law are planning to run the race next year. But a Clarence House spokesman said Harry’s comments “were said in jest.”

Prince Harry Becomes Next-door Neighbor of William and Kate

After returning from his tour of the Caribbean and Brazil, Prince Harry, 27, took his bags from his rooms at Clarence Houseover over to the Kensington Palace compound where Prince William and Kate live.

The prince is temporarily in a one-bedroom apartment in the Palace, until he can relocate to a bigger place when William and Kate move to their long-term home next year.

“This is not a huge space, but it is only natural now he’s in his 20s that he would want to be independent and have his own place, and move out of the place he has been since he was a child,” a Palace source tells PEOPLE.  ”The princes are very close, and Harry is also very close to the duchess,” the source adds. “They have all been thinking about this for a while, and when the opportunity came up they grabbed it.”


It means that William and Kate and Harry can be geographically closer when they are all in London. “They do things privately together a lot,” the source says, “and there are things that all three attend together in a formal capacity, and hopefully that won’t change.”

As previously announced, when William and Kate move into their permanent home, Apartment 1a, late next year, Harry will move into their two-bedroom home, Nottingham Cottage. Work on their home begins in earnest in September.
