Kensington Palace announced on Friday that Prince Harry will visit and officially open the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies at Imperial College London on Oct. 17.
According to a palace press release, the redheaded royal will be given a tour of the Centre, during which he will view three demonstrations in the laboratories: the effects of simulated blast impacts on cells; how the simulation of blast shockwaves can be used for research; and the simulation of an under vehicle explosion.
Harry is also expected to give a short speech during a reception following the tour.
The goals of the Centre are to increase understanding about blast injury patterns, improve treatments and recovery and develop better ways of protecting those serving in current and future conflicts.
