In late October, he joined first lady Michelle Obama at Virginia's Fort Belvoir to visit wounded members of the military. And earlier in the month, he helped build homes in Manchester for British vets in need.

Prince Harry's visit will also include a reunion with Mutsu Potsane, a young boy he met in 2004 at a children's home for orphans that he formed a very close friendship with. Their last reunion was in 2014. The Kensington Palace shared on Instagram this sweet photo of their first meeting and 2014 reunion.

To mark the special occasion, Kensington Palace also shared on Instagram this letter that Mutsu sent to Prince Harry last year.
