The Earl of Wessex, the youngest of Queen Elizabeth II’s children, arrived at Georgian Court University in Lakewood on Thursday to play court tennis, a predecessor of modern tennis.

He’s visiting the U.S. as part of a year-long program of activities to celebrate, raise awareness and drive support for the inspirational activity of young people and volunteers around the world.

The prince is participating in a nine-city, 12-day U.S. tour around the country to raise support for his father Prince Philip’s International Award program. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award recognizes 14- to 24-year-olds who achieve their goals in particular skills, culture, physical ability and interests.
