Prince William visits the White House

From our trusty White House pooler, we have a few details on the visit of Prince William's visit to the White House to meet with President Obama.

from this morning's pool report by Richard Latendresse, bureau chief.

Prince William and his wife Kate make a 3-day visit to the United States. He and President Obama last met in 2011 at Buckingham Palace during the President’s state visit to Great Britain. The Duchess of Cambridge, who is pregnant (the child is expected in April 2015), will stay in New York, skipping the DC portion of the visit.

Prince William is in town to take part in the 3rd Biennial Meeting of the International Corruption Hunters Alliance (ICHA 2014), hosted by the World Bank.

As President of “United for Wildlife,” the Duke of Cambridge is to join World Bank President Jim Yong Kim at the opening session to address more than 300 corruption experts in anti-corruption.
Prince William is expected to speak about combating illegal animal trade in wildlife parks.
The event can be followed on twitter via #EndingImpunity.

The Prince of Wales, Prince William’s father, met President Obama in the Oval Office in May 2011.
