Prince Harry is set to attend the inaugural Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago on Halloween, Kensington Palace announced Thursday. 

At the summit, the prince is expected to discuss his work with the Full Effect Project, an organization based in Nottingham, England, that offers mentorship and a support network to young people. He'll also speak about youth leadership more broadly. 

The trip later this month will be Harry's first to Chicago. But it won't be his first time seeing former President Obama since the latter left office.


Obama paid a visit to Kensington Palace in May to see the prince. The two also sat next to each other at a basketball game during the Invictus Games in Toronto last month.

The two worked together on the 2016 Invictus Games for wounded veterans in Orlando, as well as other veterans initiatives. 

Harry, as well as Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are said to have a particularly close relationship with the Obamas. 

In addition to Prince Harry, the Obama Foundation Summit is expected to draw the attendance of former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya and poet Elizabeth Alexander.
