Britain's Prince Harry visits the nation's capitol

Prince Harry is back in the U.S. for the first time since August, when he was caught on camera nude at a Las Vegas hotel.

This time the prince promises his activities will be much more diplomatic.

At the Capitol, Prince Harry walked past photos documenting efforts to remove landmines around the world.

The exhibition is staged by Halo Trust, a non-profit first supported by his mother, Princess Diana.

"This is about Prince Harry and the royal family trying to redeem him in the eyes of ordinary
Americans," says ITN Washington Correspondent Robert Moore.

On Friday Prince Harry will tour Arlington National Cemetery and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

After years serving in the British army he makes supporting troops a priority.

On Saturday he'll head to Colorado to watch the 2013 Warrior Games for wounded veterans.

Prince Harry will round out his visit with stops in New York and Connecticut for multiple charity events.
