Prince Harry’s support of a landmine clearance charity was praised as he began a tour of America by visiting an exhibition highlighting its work.
Harry made the trip to Washington to see a moving photographic display raising awareness about the anti-landmine charity the Halo Trust.
The Prince has returned to America for the first time since he sparked outrage by being photographed naked during a break in Las Vegas last year.
His seven-day tour will see him attend the Warrior Games, a Paralympic-style sporting championship for injured servicemen and women, support British interests and promote his own charities.
The royal has followed in the footsteps of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales by supporting the Halo Trust, founded in 1988, and this year he became patron of its 25th anniversary appeal.
Diana famously highlighted the work of the organisation when she was pictured wearing a face mask and protective clothing during a visit to a minefield in Angola in 1997. Harry also visited Africa to promote the charity’s work travelling to Mozambique in 2010 where under supervision he detonated several mines and met people who had lost limbs to landmines.
