Prince Harry Charms Olympic Swimmer Missy Franklin in Denver

May 11 2013 - 7:23am

Prince Harry met with Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin at a special reception in Denver, CO, yesterday as part of his US tour. He joined the crowd in singing "Happy Birthday" to Missy, who was celebrating her 18th birthday, and mingled with partygoers at the Sanctuary Golf Course. While this is the Prince's first official visit to Colorado, it isn't his first time in the state — he's been on rafting and ski trips with his brother, Prince William, and his late mother, Princess Diana. This weekend, Prince Harry will attend the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, CO, where he will watch more than 200 wounded veterans compete in various athletic competitions.

His visit with Missy came on only the second day of Prince Harry's US tour, but he's already packed in quite a few events. He attended a charity event for the HALO Trust and met up with Michelle Obama [1] in Washington DC on Thursday and he paid his respects to American veterans [2] on Friday. Harry will also visit New Jersey to tour areas damaged by Superstorm Sandy and play at the Sentebale Polo Cup match in Greenwich, CT.
