Prince Harry to host Michelle Obama

Britain's Prince Harry will meet with Michelle Obama today (16.06.15).

The 30-year-old prince previously had tea with the US First Lady two years ago after attending a Mother's Day even for military mothers with her in America and is "happy" to host President Barack Obama's wife - who is on a two-day visit to the UK with her mother Marian Robinson and daughters Malia, 16, and Sasha, 14 - and discuss their shared interests.

Michelle's chief of staff, Tina Tchen, said: "He was wonderful and it was wonderful to have him here. And we hear from his staff that he is happy to return the favour."

Michelle is spearheading the Joining Forces campaign, which aims to give past and current Armed Forces personnel "the tools they need to succeed throughout their lives", and she and Harry are looking forward to talking about "that shared interest that they have on military families".

As well as promoting the military campaign, Michelle will also use her UK visit

to highlight the Let Girls Learn initiative, which she and her husband have been championing, and will host an event at a London school to discuss boosting education globally for teenage girls.

She will also have tea with Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha.
