Prince Harry Visits Pearl Harbor and Greets Navy Workers in Newly-Released Photos

Attention! Prince Harry, reporting for duty.

Back in November, the Duke of Sussex paid a visit to Pearl Harbor located in Honolulu, Hawaii, in honor of Pearl Harbor Day. In a series of newly-released photos from the royal’s non-profit organization (Archewell Foundation) and the Navy, Harry can be seen greeting servicemen and giving an honorary salute.

According to the website, the duke spent his trip touring the sites of the USS Missouri and the USS Arizona. Also, he had the opportunity to personally meet Admiral Samuel Paparo (Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet) and Admiral John Aquilino (Commander of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command). 

In addition, Harry visited the Pearl Harbor National Memorial— a monument dedicated to the servicemembers and civilians dealing with the lasting effects of that tragic day.  

Per a previous article by People, Harry toured the facility with an expert named Dan Conover, who went into detail on their casual first meeting. “He kind of approached us. I moved out of his way because he's royalty, I figured I’d let him do his thing,” he told the publication. 

He added, “He basically gave me a greeting. He was very respectful and courteous and nice. I moved out of his way, and he kind of patted me on the back and said, ‘You’re all good mate.’ It was a simple interaction, but he was very nice and courteous and respectful.”
