Prince Harry and Michelle Obama surprised students at Hyde Park Academy, a high school across from where the President Barack Obama's presidential center will be built, and talked privately to about 20 students Tuesday, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The prince and former first lady were in town for the Obama Foundation's first international summit at the Marriott Marquis Chicago, which runs through Wednesday, according to the summit's website.

"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," Caroline Adler Morales, the former first lady's communications director, said in a statement to ABC News.

Kensington Palace released several pictures of Prince Harry and Michelle Obama with students on social media.

During the summit, Prince Harry talked about his family's charitable legacy and how he and his brother, Prince William, were developing their own approach to impact social change beyond just leveraging their names and titles, the Chicago Tribune reported.

"There is so much to do," Prince Harry said, per the Tribune. "The question is making sure you streamline it and do it right the first time. The key point is to listen. We have to listen to the younger generation. They are the cures to many of our problems ... you can't teach some of the experiences these young people have."

The Chicago Tribune said the Obama summit is his foundation's largest program of the year.
