(SOUNDBITE) (English) PRINCE HARRY SAYING: "A year ago, I was in Washington on the ambassador's lawn to plant a tree which is what most of our family do nowadays, but after doing that I had a chance to meet some of the U.S. and UK teams that had just come back from last year's warrior games and I remember sitting down and having a chat with them and sort of thinking to myself how unfortunate I had been to not have the chance to go to last year's Warrior Games and to see them win all their medals, despite the fact that we weren't officially part of it. So I said to myself and to my team who have been running around the room all here today that no matter what happens, we need to be here, we need to get ourselves involved with the next one." The Prince is on a seven-day visit to the United States.
