After training to become an Apache helicopter pilot California and Arizona last October, Prince Harry will return to the states to receive the Atlantic Council Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership, according to the Associate Press.
Harry, who attended the 2012 Virgin London Marathon yesterday (April 22nd) will be honored with the award in Washington, D.C. for his work with charities such as Walking With The Wounded and Help For Heroes, among other organizations.
St. James’s Palace released a statement today (April 23rd) saying that Harry will accept the award on behalf of his brother, The Duke of Cambridge. The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, set up in 2009 by the brothers to help the less fortunate, brought on The Duchess of Cambridge in early October as a patron.
“Prince Harry will use the award to pay tribute to British and American veterans’ charities for their achievements in helping to rehabilitate wounded servicemen and women and to reintegrate those who have served in the Armed Forces into civilian life,” the palace stated.
