England's Prince Harry, who caused a stir when nude photos of him partying in Las Vegas appeared in August, is returning to the United States for a goodwill tour.

In addition to visiting areas hit by superstorm Sandy and promoting the charitable foundation he heads with his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, he will attend the 2013 Warrior Games, an Olympics-style competition for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans.

"Prince Harry wants to highlight once again the extraordinary commitment and sacrifice of our injured servicemen and women," his private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, told The Associated Press, later adding at a news conference, "He is a soldiers' soldier and will bring a spotlight on what's being done to help these outstanding men and women."

Harry, 28, a captain in the British Army Air Corps who has served on the front lines in Afghanistan, spent two months in Arizona and California in 2011 undergoing Apache helicopter training.

Arriving May 9 in Washington, D.C., the prince plans to start his tour at a Capitol Hill exhibition of the HALO Trust landmine-clearance charity. Other stops include Arlington National Cemetery and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he will meet injured military personnel, according to the royals' official media outlet.

His itinerary continues to Denver followed by Colorado Springs, Colo., for the Warrior Games. He then returns east to visit Sandy-ravaged areas of New Jersey, promote British business during a New York City leg, and host a fundraising dinner in Manhattan for the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

On his final day here, May 15, he is scheduled play in a charitable polo match in Connecticut to raise money for children in the desperately impoverished southern African nation of Lesotho.
