Prince Harry, is known for his partying, but that may change with his first official visit to the U.S. today. The 24-year old Prince of Wales first stopped at Ground Zero to lay a wreath and was then whisked to nearby Hanover Square to officially name a British garden in honor of 67 Britons who died in the terrorist attacks.


John Farrell lives nearby and noticed recent renovations to the park, and stopped by to have a look. He's not much impressed with British royalty, but has to admit the changes are nice.


"I'd say it's a very tastefully done park, very beautiful, and I respect the British government for building it."

Cheryl Pawlowski is an insurance broker who stops at the park everyday and is impressed with the neighborhood's rich history and the previous royalty who have paid visits to the tulip and daffodil lined park.

"And now you have Prince Harry and it's nice to have a place where so many people for so many years have touched and been and sat, it's on going."

Prince Harry will also visit the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Manhattan before his polo match tomorrow in the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic on Governors Island.

Just because he comes to the U.S.A as an official visit which arranged by the British Government that will delete his bad images as "a Party Prince". Oh don't forget that he made racist statements months ago which was on front page of many news paper. There is no way that he can take his mother's place because She had class while he has not.
