Prince Harry to travel to America to pick up award for wounded war hero charity work
Harry, 27, will fly to Washington on 7 May to receive the Atlantic Council's 2012 gong for 'distinguished humanitarian leadership'.
'Prince Harry will use the award to pay tribute to British and American veterans' charities for their achievements in helping rehabilitate wounded servicemen and women and to reintegrate those who have served in the Armed Forces back into civilian life,' St James's Palace say in a statement.
The siblings make regular visits to a rehabilitation centre for injured troops in Surrey and last year Harry joined the start of a 200-mile trek to the North Pole with wounded servicemen.
Former prize-winners include U2's Bono, 51, and media boss Rupert Murdoch, 81.
'Prince Harry to accept the award on behalf of The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry's work for veterans #supportingourtroops,' Tweets Clarence House.
