My mother, who believed passionately in this cause, would be proud of my association with Halo
Michelle Obama and Prince Harry
Prince Harry is in U.S. these days. The 28-year-old royal is taking a week-long U.S. tour and he was warmly received by First Lady Michelle Obama. Not to mention he was greeted by screaming female admirers.
Harry was in Washington yesterday to promote the work of the anti-landmine charity the Halo Trust. The anti-landmine project was championed by Harry’s late mother Lady Diana.
According to Daily Mail, Harry gave a speech in support of the Halo Trust at a British embassy reception attended by US policy-makers, supporters of the anti-landmine charity and potential donors.
‘My mother, who believed passionately in this cause, would be proud of my association with Halo. In her special way, she adopted it as her own. She would join me – along with all of you, I’m sure – in praising Halo for the amazing work that it has done over the past quarter century, and in hoping that one day soon its humanitarian work will be done. At any one time, Halo has seven thousand de-miners in the field, striving to protect people, and banish the fear that pervades the lives of millions around the world”, he said.
The seven-day visit is the Prince’s first trip to America since he being photographed naked during a weekend break in Las Vegas last year.
