Britain's Prince Harry has accepted an award for his charitable activities on behalf of wounded servicemen during an event in Washington, his first visit to the U.S. capital.
The 27-year-old accepted the award Monday from the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank. Earlier in the day, he visited with wounded veterans at the British Ambassador's Residence.
Harry, who is training as an Apache military pilot, has worked with a number of charities including Walking with the Wounded, a British charity that retrains and re-educates veterans, as well as Help for Heroes, which helps wounded servicemen and women. There, he also met Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden.
The Atlantic Council's annual award ceremony is also honoring U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.
