A year after his last trip to Washington, when he hobnobbed with
Henry Kissinger,
Colin Powell, and
Ban Ki-Moon at a fabulously glitzy dinner at
the
Ritz-Carlton,

Prince Harry is heading back to town. The 28-year-old
helicopter pilot will make another
trip to the US May 9 through 15, visiting Hurricane Sandy
victims in New Jersey and
playing in the Sentebale Polo Cup in Greenwich, Connecticut, as
well as attending
the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado.

Not on the agenda: a Vegas trip. (You may remember
that the Prince’s post-Olympic
visit to that city in August of last year resulted in nude
pictures of him being splashed
all over the tabloids after a not-so-successful game of strip
poker.) The naughty-but-nice
British royal and future uncle to 2013’s most anticipated baby
will, however, be stopping
in Washington, visiting wounded warriors at Walter Reed
National Military Medical
Center, swinging by Arlington National Cemetery, and heading to
Capitol Hill to see
an exhibition on efforts to clear landmines in his new role as
patron of the HALO
Trust
—a charity his mother was famously involved
with.
