Barack Obama And Prince Harry Look Like Two Good Friends Catching Up At The Invictus Games

They were spotted laughing and having a good time.

Their relationship blossomed during his presidency, but now Barack Obama has a bit more time to spend with his somewhat longtime chum Prince Henry.

The pair attended a wheelchair basketball game at the Invictus Games in Toronto today (September 29). Both men were in casual dress at the Pan Am Centre watching the match between USA and France. They were pictured joking, laughing and chatting incessantly.

This year’s event had the two friends attending and were later joined by Joe Biden and his wife, Jill. Neither Michelle Obama nor Meghan Markle, Harry’s girlfriend, attended the game.

Barack and Harry have met up on several occasions in the past and reportedly formed a strong friendship. Michelle Obama also became friends with the 33-year-old royal.

Word spread of their unannounced arrival together, and a mob quickly formed around the two as they walked in. While he was president, Obama visited the United Kingdom in 2011, and his family stayed with the Queen. Last year, Barack and Michelle had dinner with William, Harry and Kate at Kensington Palace, where they met Prince George.

The Invictus Games is a Paralympic-inspired event established by Prince Harry that showcases sports participated by injured servicemen and women. When it was held in Florida last year, the two friends began a viral rivalry to publicize the competition.

Ugh. Can’t he be president again? Check out some photos of Barack Obama and Prince Harry at the 2017 Invictus Games below.
