Prince Harry is in the U.S. to receive a humanitarian award.

The award was given by the Atlantic Council on Monday night in Washington.

He was recognized for his work with British troops, including charities such as Walking With the Wounded and Help for Heroes. He accepted the Distinguished Humanitarian Leadership Award on behalf of himself and his brother. The award recognizes their work in rehabilitating wounded servicemen and women through The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
