The last time Prince Harry of Wales visited the US, he tried to sneak in and out of Las Vegas but managed to LITERALLY get caught with his pants down (well, off, really) sparking a worldwide controversy that very likely gave his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, fits. Today we learn that Prince Harry is returning to the US in May … but he has no plans to go anywhere near Sin City. Harry will be coming to America to do some charity work on the East Coast … but he will be spending some time in Colorado … which is dangerously close to Nevada, now that I think about it. HMMMM.
Britain’s Prince Harry is returning to the United States — but this time he’s skipping Las Vegas. The 28-year-old prince will travel to the U.S. East Coast as well as Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado, to support veterans’ charities and get in a bit of polo. Harry, a longtime supporter of charities that rehabilitate war veterans, will attend several events at the 2013 Warrior Games, a competition in which veteran athletes from both Britain and the United States take part. “Prince Harry wants to highlight once again the extraordinary commitment and sacrifice of our injured servicemen and women,” said Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Harry’s private secretary … His May 9-15 visit will include trips to Arlington National Cemetery, Walter Reed National Medical Center and an exhibition on Capitol Hill about land mine clearance, a favorite subject of his late mother, Princess Diana. He will also visit areas in New Jersey hard hit by Hurricane Sandy. Harry will also play in the Sentebale Polo Cup in Greenwich, Connecticut. Sentebale — which means “forget-me-not” — is a charity founded by Harry and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso that helps children struggling with poverty in the tiny southern African country. On his last U.S. visit, the third-in-line to the British throne stormed last year into the headlines when he was caught frolicking in the nude with a woman after an alleged game of strip billiards in his Las Vegas hotel room.
I’m assuming that Harry will be able to control himself this time … or, at the very least, will have the foresight to keep cellphones out of the room if he decided to get fully nekkid while partying again. It’ll be great to have the young prince back on US soil. He always brings a good time with him so … WELCOME BACK, HARRY!
