Prince Harry: Atlantic Council Awards in DC
Prince Harry speaks at the Atlantic Council’s Annual Awards Dinner held at the Ritz-Carlton on Monday (May 7) in Washington, DC.
The 27-year-old Royal received the Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership Award, which was presented by former Secretary of State Colin Powell.
“British and American forces train together, fight together and, tragically, some are wounded and some die together,” Harry said, adding that there needed to be continued cooperation between the countries’ armed forces. “I obviously don’t feel I’ve done nearly enough to deserve this.”
Earlier in the day, Harry marked his first visit to the U.S. capital with a reception at the residence of British Ambassador Peter Westmacott. He met with athletes from the Warrior Games, a paralympic event for wounded or sick veterans.
