He will speak at the World Bank Monday on efforts to fight illegal wildlife trafficking in addition to coming to the White House.
"We'll have a little royalty in the house Monday," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Friday.
This won't be the first meeting between the president and the prince. Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama visited with the Duke and Duchess in London, and the two men saw one another in France earlier this year.
And good news for the press corps, which has never been known for its fashion choices: less-than-couture sartorial preferences will be tolerated after all. Buckingham Palace has relaxed the dress requirements for journalists who will cover the royal visit.
“It will be down to the White House, as the host, to set the dress code for what media should be wearing,” a spokesman for Buckingham Palace told The Guardian. He said reporters wearing sneakers -- a no-no in the palace's dress code -- would not be turned away.
Here is the royal reporter dress code, per Buckingham Palace:
"Smart attire for men includes the wearing of a jacket and tie, and for women a trouser or skirt suit. Those wearing jeans or trainers will not be admitted and casually dressed members of the media will be turned away. This also applies to technicians."
