Prince Harry speaks up for wounded heroes in the US

Prince Harry has used his growing international profile to call on Britain and the US to help wounded veterans.

Accepting an award for the work of his and Prince William”s foundation, he told an audience in Washington: “They have paid a terrible price to keep us safe and free.”

“The very least we owe them is to make sure that they and their brave families have everything they need through their darkest days … for these selfless people, it is after the guns have fallen silent, the din of battle quietened, that the real fight begins.”

VIP guests at the black tie gala included UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon, General Colin Powell, and a host of US senators and congressmen.
