Wrapping up his two-day visit to Washington, D.C., Prince Harry continued to pay his respects to military servicemen.

The prince on Friday visited Arlington National Cemetery, where he stopped by the grave of President John F. Kennedy. He also visited Section 60, where soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan are buried and laid wreaths both in Section 60 and at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

Prince Harry, who has served two tours in Afghanistan as a member of the British Army, then visited Walter Reed hospital, which serves members of the U.S. military. He met with wounded troops undergoing physical therapy and watched a patient demonstrate the rehab simulator program in the Computer Assisted Rehab Environment room (CAREN).

The 28-year-old royal began his seven-day tour of the U.S. in Washington on Thursday with a tour of a Capitol Hill exhibit on clearing landmines and a stop at the White House, where he, First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden met with military families.
