Great Britain's Prince Harry made his first trip to Washington for the Atlantic Council's annual Distinguished Leadership Awards ceremony and dinner last night at the Ritz-Carlton Washington.

The prince was among the night's honorees and accepted the Humanitarian Award from General Colin Powell on behalf of himself and his brother for their work with the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry that supports those in the military. 

The dinner gala also recognized U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon for his success in mobilizing international leaders in regard to global issues, Unilever C.E.O. Paul Polman, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, and currently enlisted U.S. Armed Forces service members in recognition for their work on global issues. Mutter also performed at the event.

MSNBC's Morning Joe anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski hosted the 50th anniversary dinner for 900 former and current administration officials, heads of state, global business leaders, and members of Congress. The hotel served a three-course meal starting with seared tuna and tomato and cucumber salad, followed by a grilled beef filet with smoked shallot mashed potatoes and a seven-layer chocolate fudge cake with lemon sorbet and a salted caramel sauce.

The Atlantic Council is a bipartisan group promoting transatlantic cooperation on global issues.
