Charles arrived in Washington Tuesday for a three-day visit following his son's royal wedding last week.

His tour began with a trip to the U.S. Supreme Court, followed by a visit to the Common Good City Farm - a small urban farm that grows produce for low-income residents. He later attended an event at the British Embassy celebrating the British Forces Foundation and United Service Organizations (USO).

Charles' last visit to the nation's capital was in 2005.

He reportedly flew to the United States on a private jet donated by Texas billionaire Joe Albritton, a close friend and supporter of the prince's charities.
