Prince Harry joins Michelle Obama to visit injured troops

Britain's Prince Harry will visit Virginia's Fort Belvoir with first lady Michelle Obama and second lady Jill Biden next week.

Harry, who is third in line to be king of the United Kingdom, has teamed up with Michelle Obama before. In 2013 the pair attended an event in Washington honoring military families.

This trip the trio will meet with wounded servicemen and women in recovery and rehabilitation programs at Fort Belvoir on Oct. 29, the White House said on Wednesday.

They will tour the USO Warrior and Family Center, which supports "wounded, injured or ill servicemembers, military families and caregivers," according to a White House statement. They will give brief speeches and then watch a game similar to ones featured in the Invictus Games, an "international adaptive sporting event for wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women, both serving and veteran" that Harry promotes.

Jill Biden led a presidential delegation to the inaugural Invictus Games in London last September. The 2016 games will take place in Orlando, Fla., in May.
