ROME (AP) -- Prince Harry has paid solemn tributes to fallen Allied troops during World War II and made a surprise trip to the Colosseum during his two-day visit to Italy.
Wearing full military dress, Harry shook hands Monday with veterans and laid a wreath of poppies at the Commonwealth cemetery in Monte Cassino south of Rome, site of a key 1944 battle.
He left a handwritten note that read: "In memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Thank you. Harry."
Later Monday, Harry made a last-minute stop at the Colosseum where, dressed casually in jeans and a checked shirt, he surprised tourists as he walked around the amphitheater with a guide.
Once they recognized the prince, the visitors waved to him and called out his name.
