Yesterday, Prince Harry arrived in New York for his weekend visit. The prince, who is third in line to the British throne, first headed to West Point Military Academy, where he joined cadets in different training drills and exercises. According to the Daily News, he "fired an M4 rifle alongside cadets at popup, silhouette targets as far as 300 meters away."
A West Point instructor said, "He clearly knows what he's doing. He clearly knows how to shoot. He clearly knows how to move." Well, Prince Harry did attend Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst—plus he's a lieutenant in the British Army and he served, briefly, in Afghanistan. He also chatted with cadets; one said, "He seems like a really down-to-earth guy." Then he headed to the USS Intrepid to honor the relationship between U.S. and U.K. and praised America's "pioneering work of care in prosthetics and rehabilitation."
Today, he'll be throwing out the first pitch at the Mets game and, tomorrow, he'll be participating in a walk for veterans in Central Park and playing in the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.
