Did Prince Harry trump the Obama-Biden bromance?

The British royal was spotted laughing and cheering with former US president Barack Obama at the Invictus Games last week in Toronto, Canada. Former vice-president during the Obama presidency, Joe Biden, was seated next to them with his wife Jill.

Twitter users loved the images. Jordon-Lee advised, rightly so: “Find someone who looks at you like Prince Harry looks at President Obama.”

The four were watching the USA vs France wheelchair basketball game on Friday, and they took photos with Team US before the match, reported Huffington Post.

Obama tweeted about attending the Games on Friday: “Proud to cheer on Team USA at the Invictus Games today with my friend Joe. You represent the best of our country.”

Prince Harry was also spotted kissing his American partner and Suits actor Megan Markle during the games.

Invictus Games, a Paralympic sporting event for injured or sick armed forces personnel, were found by Prince Harry in 2014. Invictus, meaning ‘undefeated’ in Latin, was inspired by the Warrior Games in America.

The British royal and the Obamas had indulged in a Twitter “war” ahead of the Orlando Invictus Games in 2015, with hilarious videos challenging each other to bring their A-game. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau jumped in with a video that featured him doing push-ups.

At this year’s games, Obama and Harry took their camaraderie up a notch. Here’s a look at the budding bromance:
