America’s favorite member of the Royal Family is coming to town.

The British royal family announced that the “Most Eligible Bachelor in the World” will be visiting the United States in May. He will make stops in Washington D.C., Denver, Colorado, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

Is there a city obviously missing from the list? That’s right, Prince Harry will not be visiting Las Vegas where he notoriously played a game of strip poker in which he lost and we all saw his naked photos, crashed a bachelorette party, and partied with the ultimate party-boy, Ryan Lochte.

One of the reasons Prince Harry is visiting is to go to the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs.

“Prince Harry wants to highlight once again the extraordinary commitment and sacrifice of our injured servicemen and women – our wounded warriors. Although a Prince, Harry is also an operational solder – indeed he’s a soldier’s soldier – therefore throughout his briefing the recurring theme is to help recognize and bring a spotlight onto the work being done to help these outstanding young men and women,” his private secretary said.

What Prince Harry will do when he visits New York isn’t yet known. We invite him to swing by the Metro office.
