President Barack Obama will hold an Oval Office meeting Monday with Britain’s Prince William. The Duke of Cambridge is traveling to the United States with his wife, Kate, though she is not expected to join him at the White House.

While much of the royal couple’s time in the U.S. will be spent in New York, Prince William is coming to Washington to discuss illegal wildlife trafficking at the World Bank. The White House says the president welcomes William’s work on a global fight that is “both a national security threat and a devastating environmental problem.”

Obama has met previously with William and Kate during a visit to London.
