President Obama attended a reception in Wales on Thursday evening hosted by Prince Charles.  

Obama, who is in Wales for a meeting of NATO leaders, "warmly greeted" the prince before the two men shook hands, smiled and posed for cameras, according to a White House pool report. 

"Good to see you," Obama said to the prince. 

When someone at the reception asked how it felt to be the first U.S. president to visit Wales, Obama said he was having a great visit and urged others to visit, the pool report noted.  

Later on Thursday evening Obama will attend a NATO dinner.
