Prince Harry Comes to America For a Big Honor

Prince Harry spoke on stage after accepting the Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership Award.

Prince Harry suited up in Washington DC last night to attend a gala hosted by the Atlantic Council. It was a big evening for Harry, as he accepted the Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership Award from the council. Prince Harry's honor was thanks to his work on behalf of veterans through his and his brother's Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon was also honored.

Colin Powell presented Harry with his statue. Harry began his remarks with a joke, saying, "Generally, I obviously don't feel that I've done nearly enough to deserve." Harry got serious about the honor, though, and later said, "This award is for the guys. So many lives have been lost, and so many changed forever by the wounds that they have suffered."
