William and Kate will travel to the US on Sunday 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 in 2011.

The US leader told Charles that America had been mesmerised by William and Kate’s wedding a few days earlier. President Obama has developed a close affinity with the British monarchy.
