NEW YORK — Prince Harry plans to mark his first official visit to the United States with a stop at the World Trade Center site.
At midday today, the 24-year-old prince will meet with relatives of four people who died in the 9/11 attacks.
Later in the day, he will formally name the British Garden in downtown Hanover Square to honor the 67 British victims of the terrorist attack.
Harry also will visit the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Manhattan, where he will tour the prosthetics facilities and a post-traumatic stress disorder clinic.
A British soldier who lost both legs in an explosion in Afghanistan will accompany Harry on his two-day trip to New York.
Prince Harry is the younger son of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles. He is third in line to the British throne.
