LONDON, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Britain's Prince Harry has agreed to apologize personally to the chief rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth.

The prince, who is third in line for the British throne, has been dogged by criticism since he was photographed at a party wearing a Nazi uniform.

After talking with his father, Prince Charles, the 20-year-old agreed to meet Dr. Jonathan Sacks, Britain's leading rabbi, before or after the Jan. 27 celebration of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the Times of London reported Saturday.

The meeting will include the Earl of Wessex, representing Britain's royal family, and Foreign Minister Jack Straw, representing the government.
