Michelle Obama to host Britain's Prince Harry next week

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Britain's Prince Harry is joining forces with Michelle Obama and Jill Biden.

The White House says the trio will visit Fort Belvoir on Wednesday to meet wounded military members in recovery and rehabilitation programs. They'll also tour a USO center that supports wounded or ill service members, their families and caregivers. In addition, they'll watch a sports event similar to those featured in the prince's Invictus Games.

Harry will be in the U.S. to promote the sporting event for wounded service personnel. The 2016 Invictus Games are slated for Orlando, Florida.

Vice President Joe Biden's wife, Jill, led a delegation to the inaugural Invictus Games in London last year as part of the Joining Forces military initiative she leads with Mrs. Obama.

Harry visited the White House in 2013.
