Prince Harry Thanks Vets

    Britain's Prince Harry (L) receives the Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership Award presented by former Secretary of State Colin Powell during the Atlantic Council 2012 Annual Awards Dinner at a hotel in Washington, DC, on May 7, 2012. Prince Harry joined a black-tie dinner in Washington to accept a humanitarian prize for his work supporting charities that help injured British and US military personnel. Harry, 27, arrived at the Atlantic Council fund-raising dinner to a small bevy of young female admirers, who he neglected to acknowledge as he stepped inside the luxury Ritz Carleton hotel for the gala.

    Prince Harry will fly back to Britain Tuesday after visiting Washington, D.C., and receiving an award for his humanitarian efforts on Monday. Former U.S. secretary of state Colin Powell introduced Harry to the Atlantic Council dinner, saying “the loving effort that Princess Diana made to teach her sons the importance of serving others has touched [their] hearts and souls.” Harry thanked service members, saying it was a “privilege for me to fight alongside members of the United States Armed Forces.” Earlier Monday Harry met with Jill Biden at the British ambassador’s residence before they went to the dinner.
