NEW YORK - Prince Harry is headed to New York for his first official visit to the United States.

At midday Friday, the 24-year-old British prince plans to visit the World Trade Center site.

He'll also name a lower Manhattan garden to honour the 67 British victims of the terrorist attack.

And on Saturday on Governors Island, the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, will play one of the Royal Family's favourite sports - polo.

Third in line to the British throne, the prince is a much-watched member of the Royal Family.

His "party-boy" image and brushes with scandal regularly make newspaper headlines.
