Prince Harry to pay for New York trip ‘out of his own pocket’

London, May 14 (ANI): Prince Harry will reportedly spare taxpayers thousands by paying for his trip to New York out of his own pocket.

The royal will raise money for his Aids charity Sentebale and is allegedly set to host a VIP dinner later this month, reports the Sun.

The 24-year-old will jet to the Big Apple along with a four-strong entourage in business class and the Queen will pick up the tab for his first foreign tour, as per reports.

Harry’s low-maintenance visit was said to be in a stark contrast to the pricey Stateside trips undertaken by his father Charles and uncle Andrew.

Charles and Camilla left a 330,000-pound bill after taking a private jet to New York four years ago, while Andrew raked up a 118,440 tab when he hired a plane to fly across the States last year. (ANI)
