Prince Harry Goes To Ground Zero

Prince Harry Goes To Ground Zero

Prince Harry lays a wreath down to pay his respects to the victims of the 9/11 World Trade Center attack at Ground Zero on Friday (May 29) in New York City.

The 24-year-old British royalty marks his first official trip to the US. The young prince spoke to relatives of 9/11 victims, visited firefighters at Engine 10, greeted people at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center and planted a tree at the British Memorial Garden at Hanover Square.

Prince Harry is scheduled to visit the Harlem Children’s Zone and play in a polo match Saturday at Governors Island in New York Harbor before wrapping up his two-day visit in New York.

Dubbed as the “party prince,” Prince Harry showed a more solemn, heartwarming side during his debut visit to the US.

On the wreath he hung at Ground Zero, Harry left a note saying, “In respectful memory of those who lost their lives on September 11th, 2001, and in admiration of the courage shown by the people of this great city on that day. Harry.”

    What an amazing event! He actually DIDN’T PUT HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH! And yet would you believe people want to get rid of the royal family!
    He is a privileged brat; no less and no more.

    anon Says:


    Well, some people are spoiled, priviledged brats but never grow out of it. I think he is maturing and don’t tell me you never did anything that was stupid or never said anything that was stupid. From birth he grew up in the limelight and his life will always be like that. I’d like to see the spotlight on you all the time and I am sure we’d all have a good laugh or gasp at your expense.

    Neil Says:

    I think your comment was supposed to be directed at me. There are worse things a person can be than a privileged brat but that being said it just reaffirms that even if he looks fine he is of no consequence. His whole life will be about trying to be relevant and so justifying his privilege. “Welfare” of the highest order.

    Harry is young and hasn’t always made the right decisions in how he conducts his private life.
    But that said, he has done a lot of good for Lesotho. He did the equivalent of an internship there and has continued his campaign for awareness for this small, impoverished country which he supports and visits regularly. He also has continued to do charitable work that his mother started.
    So maybe some people want the royals to die off and disappear, but I’d far rather have someone real like Harry,
    And yes he has been privileged, but he also had his mother die in a horrendous car accident–a mother he loved and cherished and who loved and cherished him. He has had to face constant rumors about his parentage, his mother and his father’s affairs etc.
    Privileged upbringings don’t negate the infliction of emotional pain.
    I think Harry seems to be growing up and turning out to be a fine a young man.

    To Neil Says:

    He doesn’t have to justify his privliege. And he is of consequence. What god or higher authority gave you the right to declare a person royal or not royal of no consequence.
    As the previous poster said, he continues to do his charity work. Maybe it makes no difference to you, but I bet it makes a difference to those he affects and effects.
    I seem to remember a story of his first visit to Lesotho. He held a three month old child in his arms. A child who had been brutally raped by someone thinking the witch doctor’s doctrine of having sex with a young virgin would prevent you from getting AIDS.
    He has continued to look out for that child. Paying expenses for her care and education.
    You know what Neil. you may think he is of no consequence, but I bet that child thinks he holds the sun and the moon in his hands. He saved her and gave her value by his support, his patronage, his privilege whatever you want to call it. He made a difference to her.
    What have you done of consequence that has made a difference in a person’s life?

    chels Says:

    he signed “harry” he is humble, because he could have signed as “prince harrry”

    Norman Says:

    I completely agree with Courtney – Harry acted like a complete tw*t sometimes but if you have seen footage of him out in Lesotho – it is heartwarming – and before anyone says it was all for the cameras, he continues to visit the children without the cameras, so its not just about the publicity.

    You/Me Says:

    Prince Harry is a great guy, and I think he has the potential to be an even better man. Yeah he has had his party days and his share of “scandal” but I think his heart is in the right place and he will follow in his mother’s steps and try and help other people as much as possible. It’s ridiculous to rag him just because he was born royal or privileged…..that’s life, some are and some aren’t. It’s what people choose to do with their lives, born privileged or not, that matters. And I believe Prince Harry will do good.

    do i detect green eyed jealousy in your tone. i think i do; poor boy. he was born into the british royal family with all the privileges that go with it and you weren’t. let me guess, you’re of the opinion that he should have to give you money.

    JJ you forgot to mention one of the most important things:

    The polo match is to benefit his charity called Sentebale. The American branch of this charity is overseeing this trip.

    Our mission is to transform the lives of Lesotho’s orphans and vulnerable children.

    Sentebale was founded by Prince Harry and Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso to help the forgotten victims of poverty and of the HIV/Aids epidemic ravaging this kingdom.

    that’s a rumor that has been around since the day harry was born. the only people who know the truth for sure would be likely be charles, the queen and prince phillip. all of whom was have demanded a dna test by now. i also have no doubt that by now harry knows the results. i should point out that they are not legally required to give out the results. in any case, charles is the man that harry acknowledges as his father; for me that’s all that is necessary.

    New Yorker Says:

    He’s been getting fanstastic coverage here. Not too much but enough to make people aware. He has competition because President Obama and his wife Michelle are here on a “date night tonight”. There is so much security in the theater district because they are at a broadway show called Joe Turner’s Come & Gone, or something like that. Tthey looked so cute. Prince Harry looks great also.

    WTG Harry. More Americans should remember 9-11;many are forgetting it.
    some Americans and celebs should give housing for the terrorists if they want Gitmo close.

    wow Says:

    A very good looking young man with a big heart. I think he got the last bits of the riff raff out of him and is now an upstanding prince who still enjoys a good time here and there. That’s his spirit, . He doesn’t have the pressure that his older bro has though. I think he loves that!

    ahdy Says:

    You all know 911 was carried out by the us government right? It’s the same show that’s been done for years as a reason to start a war. Attack ourselves, blame it on others, and go to war.

    Just do this one thing.. what happened to WTC Building 7 ? Answer that, then go deeper.

    One day perhaps the truth will be told, otherwise do your own research and know what evil your own government has done.

    Harry is a breath of fresh air (like his mother) compared to his stiff father and brother. He is honest and humble and I wish him the best of luck in his life.

    No, not green eyed jealousy. More like jaundiced eyed. The Royal family knows very well about public perception and no doubt he has had his wrists slapped and a good talking to more than a few times. If he has some intelligence he will negotiate his future with fewer flubs. But then that seems to be The Raison d’être of the Royals. I am no fan of Dianna but I do believe it wasn’t about damage control with her when she invested her time and money into charities and such. Harry and the rest of them…. I am not convinced.
