 SEDALIA, COLORADOUNITED STATES (MAY 10, 2013) (RESTRICTED POOL) -  Britain's Prince Harry arrived in Colorado Friday (May 10) for his second stop on a seven-day visit to the United States.

The prince, the third-in-line to the British throne, is expected to use his U.S. visit to show support for both wounded U.S. and British military personnel and promote his charities, as well as undertake official duties on behalf of the government.

The 28-year-old royal is in Colorado to support the 2013 Warrior Games, an Olympics-style competition where military veterans wounded in war compete in sports that include archery, wheelchair basketball, swimming and cycling.

He spent the earlier part of the day in Washington where he paid his respects to soldiers killed in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars at Arlington National Cemetery.

His U.S. trip also includes a visit to people affected by Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey before the tour concludes on May 15.
