Prince and the pres­i­dent steal the show

Sunday Tasmanian - - News | World - RACHEL DALE

THE bromance blos­somed be­tween Prince Harry and Barack Obama as they cheered on the wheel­chair bas­ket­ball in Toronto.

The pair bounced off each other while they cheered on the teams at the In­vic­tus Games at the Pan Am sports cen­tre.

Mr Obama and the prince were also the fo­cus of hi­lar­i­ous ri­val videos dur­ing the lead-up to the Games in Florida last year.

Their lat­est ap­pear­ance is be­lieved to have been planned as Mr Obama was in Canada to de­liver a speech ear­lier that day about global cit­i­zen­ship.

The meet­ing was a stark con­trast from last Satur­day when the prince met US First Lady Me­la­nia Trump with an awk­ward hand­shake. Mr Obama play­fully nudged Harry on the shoul­der at one point and the pair chuck­led as the for­mer US leader chanted: “USA, USA!”

Last week Prince Harry and girl­friend Meghan Markle looked every inch the loved-up cou­ple af­ter be­ing spot­ted at their first pub­lic en­gage­ment to­gether at the wheel­chair ten­nis.
