The Prince of Wales has several appearances scheduled, including two related to his interest in sustainable agriculture.

On Tuesday afternoon, Prince Charles will visit Common Good City Farm, an urban farm that grows food for low-income D.C. residents. The prince produces his own line of organic foods from his British estate.

And on Wednesday, he'll be the keynote speaker at a conference at Georgetown University called "The Future of Food."

The prince also plans a visit to the Supreme Court, where he'll attend a reception for Marshall scholarship alumni. The scholarship program gives American students a chance to do graduate work in the United Kingdom.

While in D.C., the prince will also stop by a USO event to support British and U.S. armed forces currently deployed oversees. He will also meet with President Obama.

During a visit in 2007, Prince Charles and his wife visited Philadelphia and New York City. His last visit to D.C. was in 2005.
