The 33-year-old royal and the former first lady surprised students at Hyde Park Academy, a high school in Chicago on Tuesday.
Michelle Obama thanked the 33-year-old, who is fifth in line to the throne, for coming to her hometown of Chicago.
“Thanks to my friend Prince Harry for joining me today to surprise these remarkable students at Hyde Park Academy on the South Side. We were blown away by their passion, ambition and talent! #ReachHigher #ObamaSummit,” Obama wrote on Instagram alongside a slideshow of her and Prince Harry with the students.
“The warm and wide-ranging conversation, lasting over an hour, covered how the Obama Presidential Center will showcase the South Side of Chicago for a global audience, the importance of young people staying inspired and hopeful, and the transformative power of students using their voices to change the world,” Kensington Palace wrote in a statement. “Prince Harry is on a short visit to Chicago where he will speak at the Obama Foundation Summit later.”
According to the Palace, Prince Harry will talk about the Full Effect program and his work to provide platforms for young leaders.
