DENVER — Prince Harry arrived in Colorado Friday afternoon with a full schedule ahead of him.
The royal’s first stop was at the Sanctuary Golf Course near Denver, where he spoke with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock during the private reception.
Harry also shook hands with Olympic swimmer and gold medalist Missy Franklin, and he even serenaded her for her 18th birthday.
The prince’s tour has a strong central theme of advocating for injured military members from both the UK and U.S. Armed Forces.
He wants to highlight their extraordinary commitment and sacrifice, according to Harry’s private secretary.
And that publicity started Thursday in our nation’s capitol.
He arrived in Washington D.C. to meet Sen. John McCain—and to a waiting throng of cameras and screaming fans.
