Harry's US tour to help boost aid for injured troops

Prince Harry will tour America to lend his support to various rehabilitation charities, including his own, St James's Palace announced today.

Harry will attend the opening ceremony of the Warrior Games where injured serviceman and women will compete in Paralympic-style competitions in May.

Harry's private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, said the Prince intended to use the tour to highlight the work being done to help those injured in war.

Prince Harry wants to highlight once again the extraordinary commitment and sacrifice of our injured service men and women, our wounded warriors.

Although a Prince, Harry is also an operational soldier - indeed he's a soldier's soldier - therefore throughout this briefing the recurring theme is to help recognise and bring a spotlight onto the work being done to help these outstanding young men and women.
