On Thursday, Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry will attend the inaugural Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago on Halloween.
The mission of the foundation “is to inspire and empower people to change their world.”
While Harry is there, he is expected to address his work with the Full Effect project, an initiative in Nottingham, England, that strives to provide young people mentorship and a support network. He will also discuss the power of youth leadership.
This trip will mark Harry’s first visit to Chicago. However, it won’t be his first reunion with former President Barack Obama since he left office. Back in May, Obama visited Kensington Palace to see Harry.

Last month, they sat side-by-side at a basketball game during the Invictus Games in Toronto, along with former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden.
The Obama family and Harry have a close friendship. He has also worked with Michelle multiple times on veteran initiatives and events including the 2016 Invictus Games in Orlando.
Other attendees who are expected to be at the summit are former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Chobani yogurt mogul Hamdi Ulukaya, Obama Presidential Center architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, and Chicago artist Theaster Gates. According to The Obama Foundation, they have received more than 20,000 applications to attend the summit.
