Prince Harry's D.C. Visit Includes Anti-Landmine Photo Exhibition, Dinner With Ambassador

Prince Harry's D.C. Visit Includes...

WASHINGTON -- This week Prince Harry will be looking at pictures rather than having them taken.

On Thursday, Prince William's younger brother begins his week-long U.S. visit with two days in D.C..

His schedule starts with a trip to Capitol Hill for an anti-landmine photography exhibition put on by the HALO Trust, a group that works to remove explosives left behind by war. The exhibition is on display at the Russell Senate Rotunda, and open to the public until May 10.

Harry, a patron of the HALO Trust’s 25th Anniversary, is scheduled to be escorted by Washington royalty -- Cindy McCain, the wife of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) -- as well as HALO Trust founder Guy Willoughby and a HALO Trust board member.

E Online reports that the prince's itinerary in the nation's capital also includes being guest of honor at a reception and dinner at the home of British Ambassador Peter Westmacott, where Harry will give a speech about HALO's work.

On Friday, Prince Harry is due to visit Arlington National Cemetery, then the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, before boarding a flight to Colorado. After Colorado, the 28-year-old royal will travel to parts of New Jersey hit by Hurricane Sandy, followed by a trip to Manhattan, ending his stateside stay with a Greenwich, Ct., polo fundraising event.
