Britain's Prince Charles Visits Washington

Britain's Prince Charles looks at flowers he received during a visit to Common Good City Farm in Washington, on Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Britain's Prince Charles is visiting the U.S. capital, just days after the wedding of his elder son, Prince William.

The Prince of Wales arrived Tuesday in Washington, DC, where he stopped at the Supreme Court for a reception and toured an urban farm that grows food for low-income city residents.

Prince Charles also is scheduled to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama during his three-day stay.

He also will give the keynote address at a sustainable agriculture conference at Georgetown University, and will attend an event to support British and American armed forces deployed overseas.

The prince last visited the United States in 2007 with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. The couple attended events in New York and Philadelphia and visited four other U.S. cities.
