Prince Harry received a welcome reserved for pop stars when his tour of America began - and a glowing tribute from first lady Michelle Obama.
Hundreds of screaming women greeted him on Washington's Capitol Hill when he attended an event promoting the Halo Trust, an anti-landmine charity he supports.
Prince Harry recalled the passion of his mother Princess Diana when he gave a speech in America and spoke of 'people who live in countries blighted by land mines' for who there could be 'no return to normality':
And when he was announced as a surprise guest at a White House tea reception honouring military mothers he received a standing ovation and more whoops of delight from US servicewomen and their children.
The seven-day visit is the Prince's first to America since he caused outrage by being photographed naked during a weekend break in Las Vegas last year
