Prince Harry and Barack Obama were spotted having a blast at the Invictus Games in Toronto on September 29. The pair came out like two good friends while sharing a laugh during a wheelchair basketball match between USA and France.
The former U.S. president, who also reunited with former Vice President Joe Biden, and the royal arrived at the Pan Am Centre just before 9 A.M. before taking to their front-row seats. It didn’t take long for the duo to start laughing, talking and joking amongst each other while watching the game.

Kensington Palace took to its Twitter account to share a photo of the two having a bromantic outing at the venue. Obama, who donned a simple blue shirt and black pants, was seen smiling with Harry apparently explaining something at the former president. Also featured in the photo were Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden.

“It was awesome. I had no idea I was going to be sat with them or that Barack Obama was coming,” said financial analyst Jessica Stickle, who also joined the pair in the front row. “I just said to Barack ‘thank you so much for what you’ve done. I love you and my grandma loves Prince Harry,’ ” she continued, before adding, “Prince Harry said, ‘It’s nice to meet you and thanks for being here.’ ”

“They were both chatting to the two ladies next to me. I think they’re both nurses in Germany,” she shared. “Harry and Barack were laughing a lot with each other and seemed like best buds. They were cheering and Barack was giving the thumbs up so he seemed really happy with the result.”

Noticeably missing from the outing were former FLOTUS Michelle Obama and Harry’s girlfriend actress Meghan Markle. Harry previously made headlines after arriving at the Invictus Games while holding hands with the “Suits” star on Monday, September 25. It marked the couple’s very first formal debut as a couple.
