The Duke of Cambridge will call on President Barack Obama during his visit to America with the Duchess.

The two men will meet at the White House in Washington on Monday ahead of a major speech William will deliver, expected to be about the illegal wildlife trade, at the World Bank Group's International Corruption Hunters Alliance Conference.

William and Kate will travel to the US tomorrow for a three-day visit, spending the majority of their time in New York, where they will promote their charitable interests and other good causes.

The Duke will be following in the footsteps of his father, the Prince of Wales, who chatted to Mr Obama in the White House's Oval Office in May 2011.
