WASHINGTON,(Reuters) - Britain's Prince Charles began a three-day visit to Washington Tuesday to focus largely on environmental sustainability, the British Embassy said.

The heir to the British throne will be the keynote speaker at a "Future of Food" conference at Georgetown University, where he is expected to talk about local, organic, and sustainable food production.

The prince will also meet with President Barack Obama to discuss energy and the environment, the British and American military partnership, and to look ahead to Obama's state visit at the end of the month, according to a statement.

Charles was scheduled to visit Common Good City Farm, an urban farm that caters to low-income residents, Tuesday.

Charles' trip follows the marriage last Friday of his son, Prince William to Kate Middleton.
