Take a look at Prince Harry’s life, from being cradled as a baby in the late Princess Diana’s arms to his recent charity work.

Prince Harry plans to visit the United States on an official multi-stop journey that will include a visit to wounded veterans.

The prince will be in America from May 9-15, the palace said in a briefing Monday. His trip will include a stop in Washington, D.C., where he will visit the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, a facility for wounded service members.

Harry, an officer in the British Army, recently returned from a second tour of duty in Afghanistan.

The prince also plans to visit a Capitol Hill exhibit on landmine clearance, a campaign passionately taken up by his mother, Princess Diana.

Harry also will tour areas hit by Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey, along with a visit to Greenwich, Conn., to attend a polo match. Denver also will be on his tour stop.

The May trip will be an official visit on behalf of England, unlike the last time the prince visited the United States in August 2012 following the Summer Olympics. He spent several days in Las Vegas, where he was famously photographed nude by friends he met at the time. Harry later said he showed poor judgment, and that “I let my family down; I let other people down” with the incident.
