First Lady Michelle Obama and his Royal Highness Prince Harry joined forces to for the Forces Invictus Games 2016 Event held in VA yesterday. Peep the pics and get the deets on the event inside…
Prince Harry is all about helping wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women. As if our Royal crush could grow even more.
To continue his philanthropic works, Harry headed to the USA for the announcement that America will host the next Invictus Games. The games are played to show the power of sport in inspiring the recovery, rehabilitation and wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.
So, First Lady Michelle Obama, looking amazing, and Prince Harry were front-and-center at an event held at the Wells Fields House at Fort Belvoir in Virginia to officially launch the 2016 Invictus Games in the United States.
FLOTUS, Prince Harry (a former serviceman) and Dr. Jill Biden met with wounded veterans and watched some of them hit the court for a friendly game of basketball in a wheelchair scrimmage.
Thanks to the USA, the 2016 Games will be held in Orlando, Florida at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex from 8 to 12 May 2016. Prince Harry expressed his excitement of bringing the games to the U.S. saying,
“I am absolutely delighted that the United States has taken up that challenge and will host the next Invictus Games in 2016. I have no doubt that the USA will set the bar even higher than London did and put on a great show.
This isn’t the first time FLOTUS and Prince Harry have been in each other’s company. Mrs. O invited Prince Harry to the White House back in 2013 to pay tribute to his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales at a charity event.
Following this event, Prince Harry went to meet President Obama for the first time in the Oval Office at the White House.
