The Prince of Wales is scheduled to tour the Common Good City Farm, which grows food for low-income Washington residents, according to the Washington Post. On Wednesday, he will be the keynote speaker at a conference on sustainable agriculture at Georgetown University.

The Post reports that Charles will also visit the Supreme Court, where he will attend a reception for Marshall scholarship alumni. The program gives American students a chance to do graduate work in the United Kingdom.

Charles' last visit to the United States was in 2007, when he and the Duchess of Cornwall visited New York and Philadelphia. The heir to the British throne last visited Washington in 2005.
