First Lady Michelle Obama Meets With Prince Harry Over Tea During European Tour

The first lady is on a week long tour of the United Kingdom and Italy.

Kensington Palace announced the prince was “very pleased” to host the first lady, her daughters Sasha and Malia, and her mother Marian Robinson. Obama and Prince Harry discussed their mutual desire to help military families as well as the first lady’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative to promote education for adolescent girls across the world.

"We are absolutely thrilled that he could be with us today," Obama said at the time. "He wanted to be here to personally thank you for your service."

The first lady’s tea with Prince Harry, the first of her stops on her week-long European tour, was closed to the public.

"There are 60 million girls all around the world, just like the girls here [at Mulberry] but they're not getting an education," Obama said at a roundtable.

It was a topic the first lady also discussed with Prince Harry. Speaking to the group of students, Obama relayed the prince's message on education for girls.

"He said, 'It’s important to have male voices at the table on this issue because often times its going to be the brother or the father in a community speaking up,'" she said.
