It has been reported this morning that HRH Prince Harry will be making an official trip to the USA as an Ambassador for the UK. It will be Prince Harry’s first visit to the United States on behalf of the British Government. He will be visiting places such as New York and Washington DC.
Prince Harry is to make numerous engagements on behalf of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in the United States which will cover his personal interests and much more.
The tour, which is scheduled for May this year, will end with Prince Harry playing a Polo match for his charity Sentebale.
A member of Prince Harry’s household said: “Prince Harry will do a tour this year. He is a brilliant asset however best he can be used for the UK overseas. We will not comment on the location or details of the tour until nearer the time.”
He is also scheduled for a visit to Lesotho and South Africa for his charity Sentebale.
Another aide told the Telegraph, “In addition to his own royal duties, Harry is expecting to step in for William and Catherine for some things they had planned that now won’t be possible because of the baby.”
Prince Harry has been to America before, but not on behalf of the British Government. In 2009 he went to visit victims and relatives of victims of the 9/11 attacks and visited Ground Zero.
