Prince Harry is returning to the United States for the first time since his infamous visit to Las Vegas last summer.

The 28-year-old prince will be visiting several East Coast cities in his first visit to the U.S. on behalf of the British government. The purpose of his trip is to boost British trade and attend several charity and social cause engagements.

Last summer, photos surfaced of a naked prince partying in a Las Vegas hotel suite during a vacation.

The photos, although controversial, have done little to harm his reputation as an international ambassador.
