After the public debut of his relationship with girlfriend Meghan Markle at the Invictus Games in Toronto earlier in the week, Prince Harry spent Friday's Games with another equally important American: President Barack Obama. Actually, Harry got to sit with Obama and Jill and Joe Biden as he watched a wheelchair basketball match. And no one invited you!
The Invictus Games, founded by Prince Harry, are essentially a veteran/military personnel version of the Paralympics. The aim of the games is to "demonstrate the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and demonstrate life beyond disability." Surely having Joe and Barack cheering you on helps in that effort.
Later, the group posed together for more pictures, and Obama even jokingly told a player to "stop showing off." Now, if only Harry would stop showing off his squad.
President Obama shared some of those pictures on Twitter, where he wrote, "Proud to cheer on Team USA at the Invictus Games today with my friend Joe. You represent the best of our country."
("My friend Joe," thinks the prince, rolling his eyes, "but not best friend. I'm his best friend.")
This isn't the first time the Obamas have supported the Invictus Games with Prince Harry. Michelle Obama headlined the 2016 games in Orlando, Florida, and the two families even had a war of the viral videos that the Windsors decisively won when they scored a cameo by Queen Elizabeth II.
It looked like a good time was had by all just invite us next time won't you
It's heart-warming to know that there are still people in the world who know how to properly thank and honor the brave men and women of the military who sacrifice so much, and that there are places where we can come together across borders to work toward a common goal. That place, obviously, is Canada.
