LONDON, March 25 (UPI) -- Britain's Prince Harry is to tour the United States in May to raise awareness and money for the rehabilitation of wounded American and English troops.

St. James Palace said the prince will visit May 9-15, with stops on his itinerary to include include Washington, Colorado, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

"Prince Harry wants to highlight once again the extraordinary commitment and sacrifice of our injured servicemen and women -- our wounded warriors," the BBC quoted Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, the prince's private secretary, as saying Monday. "Although a prince, Harry is also an operational soldier -- indeed he's a soldier's soldier."
