Prince Harry Meets With Wounded Veterans For a Charity Event in London

Prince Harry welcomed a group of six wounded Afghanistan veterans with a smile after they completed the Walk of Britain at Buckingham Palace in London on Sunday. Harry kept things casual in a gray sweatshirt and blue trousers for the outing, which involved an emotional US Marine, Kirstie Ennis, who gifted Harry with a dog tag as a token of her appreciation. The event was organized by Walking With the Wounded, a charity that benefits vets and marked the end of a 1,000-mile trek, which began in Scotland on Aug. 22.

Harry's appearance comes on the heels of a busy couple of weeks for the prince. After Harry cohosted the premiere of Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer's Llamas with his brother, Prince William, and his sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts' London headquarters, the trio attended the world premiere of the new James Bond film, Spectre, at the Royal Albert Hall, and most recently, Harry met up with President Barack Obama for the first time to discuss his participation in the 2016 Invictus Games.
